I’ve had a great first week at the British Consulate-General. Not only is the office conveniently located (with spectacular views from the 28th floor), everyone who works there has been warm and welcoming. It was nice to meet everyone who works in the office – a smaller team than I was expecting for the work they do. And it’s been interesting seeing some of the dynamics of how the cross-Canada network (the High Commission in Ottawa, consulates in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, and a trade office in Calgary) functions. I’m also quite excited about the project I’ll be working on over the next month, in addition to whatever urgent needs develop! It’s definitely going to be a memorable experience.
