After publishing our #HelloMyNameIs blog last week about Dr. Kate Granger and the importance of her campaign to have all NHS staff introduce themselves before treating a patient, we decided we would start a new blog series to introduce our team...starting today with our newest member...

Hello My Name Is...... Rio

Name:                                    Rioghnach Fitzgerald

Company Role/Job Title:     Compliance Manager

Describe your typical working day:

I make sure everyone is suitable for work. That involves chasing compliance, references, dealing with audits, GDPR – I make sure that we follow all NHS rules and regulations!

What was the most interesting or unusual job you have ever had?

I used to work as a traffic controller in Sydney, Australia – Its basically a glorified lollipop lady but on building sites

Best thing about the max20 office?

The people! ......And the fact that everyone loves to bake

Worst thing about the max20 office?

With this heat, it’s definitely not having any aircon

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

Two things – When I was really little I wanted to be a dog walker! Then I wanted to be in the Olympics

Do you have a favourite quote or a favourite line from a movie?

Favourite Quote: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” Michaelangelo

Which Mr. Men/Little Miss character to describe both your work and your home personality

At work I like to be Little Miss Helpful, I’m always happy to get stuck in to whatever work needs to be done.

At home it’s a toss up between Little Miss Chatterbox or Little Miss Princess! I defeinately think im one of these although my partner may not agree!

Best book you have ever read?

Under the Hawthorn Tree – It’s a book about Ireland in the 1800’s and I used to love it as a kid or To Kill a Mockingbird – a classic!

First concert attended?

My first concert was Steps when I was about 8 years old haha!

Can you tell us a joke?

Paddy texts his wife:

“Mary, I’m just having one more pint with the lads. If I’m not back in 20 minutes, read this message again!”


Thanks for being our first staff profile Rio! Its great to have you on board!
