HELDER PAULINO - 60 SECONDS
> What gets you out of bed in the morning?
It makes me feel proud to be part of such an amazing company and to deliver the best value for money and service to our clients in the market place. Every day is filled with plenty of interesting challenges, that you as an individual appreciate, take on board and become part of.
> What do you like most about your job?
The daily challenges and the diversity of them! I don’t think about the challenges themselves, but focus on the solutions to help our customers.
> What challenges do you face?
It is varied, from the analysis stage, to tendering, negotiation and finally deal closure. Everything in the process is a challenge, particularly where there are constantly fluctuating market prices. We need to be strong commercially in order to guarantee that our customers are served with the best value for money. This is a process that becomes a routine, but as every customer and property is different there is never a repeated situation.
> What made you pursue this career?
I have always been interested in buildings and previously asked myself, how do people or companies manage these structures? I thought that I could use my procurement skills, developed in other market sectors and transfer these to the property sector and companies like Rendall & Rittner, who negotiate multi-million pounds contracts on behalf of clients.
> Who inspires you?
More than who, is what inspires me. I get inspiration from the environment around me (places, personal interaction and new challenges).
> What are you most proud of?
Professionally I am proud of the procurement achievements I have delivered to date and the fantastic relationships I have developed with my colleagues. I have received fantastic feedback based on the support I have been able to provide them and their clients.
Personally, I'm proud of my family and being a father.
> What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Water sports, family time and good food
> What are you most looking forward to this year?
Definitely developing Rendall and Rittner’s range of procurement initiatives and supporting Rendall & Rittner’s commitment to continuous improvement and delivering added value to our customers, by driving down costs and increasing service delivery.
