6 questions for 6 years: Tosh

HOME is a pretty special place to work. And we’re not just saying that ourselves – our Homie retention levels are the among the highest in the industry.

We wanted to chat to some of ’em to find out what it is about HOME that makes them stay. So, we’ve got a bunch of Homies lined up who have all been here for 6 years. And we’ve asked them – yep, you guessed it – 6 questions about their time at the agency.

For the final entry in this series, we’re catching up with Tosh Balding, our Director of Client Delivery.

What’s your role here at HOME?

I lead the team that ensures we can deploy the best possible experiences for clients, on time and within budget. I also support our financial, new business and marketing teams to manage new opportunities and commercialise them in an effective way.

How has your role developed since you first started?

My role is more operational now. When I started, I was one person doing project management in an agency of no project managers, and now I’m responsible for upwards of 30 people, all performing some level of project management within the agency.

How would you describe life at HOME?

Engaging, fun and challenging.

What is it that‘s made you stay for six years?

The people definitely have a part to play in that. And the opportunities available too.

And what is something that’s challenged you since you’ve been here?

When you’re really passionate about your work and want to do the best you can do, it’s sometimes hard to remember the context of the industry we’re in. By which I mean, no one died. And it’s important to remember that.

What would you say to people wanting to work here/new starters?

Strap in, listen carefully and don’t be afraid to challenge.
