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 Rosalind Futter, Finance Director
What does your job at Muse involve?
I lead the finance team within Muse, with overall responsibility for safeguarding our financial position and driving sustainable growth.
What attracted you to working in property?
Similar to lots of finance professionals I worked in a variety of different industries in the early part of my career, before coming to property. At the time, it was more the role than the industry I was attracted to. However, I now love seeing how developing a new physical environment can transform an area and positively impact those who use it – whether it’s creating much needed housing, transforming public spaces, developing an innovative office building or creating spaces for leisure.
Why do you think International Women’s Day is important?
Do you have any advice for young women looking to get into the industry?
Be yourselves and don’t be afraid to speak up. At the moment property is still quite a male dominated industry, but that is changing. The industry is realising it needs to make sure the physical places we create speak to everyone who uses them, and to do that it needs to hear the voices of a wide range of stakeholders.
