On International Women’s Day 2023, find out more about some of our female colleagues, their roles and what advice they’d give to future placemakers.

Meet Emma Payne, Project Manager

What does your job at Muse involve?

A lot of talking. Communication is a big part of the role and luckily something I really enjoy! We work across multiple projects, with various different teams, all with different priorities, so coordinating multiple groups of people to deliver our places to our high standards is my focus.

What attracted you to working in property?

The variety. Every day is different, and we get to work with a diverse group of people, all with very different skills and experiences.

Why do you think International Women’s Day is important?

Hopefully one day every day will be women’s day but until that point, we should be flagging gender disparities and discrimination and shouting from the roof tops about our accomplishments. It’s about supporting women all around the world and working for a brighter future for the next generations. ”

Do you have any advice for young women looking to get into the industry?

Think big, be inquisitive and ask questions – it’s likely that most people won’t know what the acronym is in that meeting or on a report.
