About Knight Dragon

We are Knight Dragon; entrepreneurial creative-spirited makers of places who bring new ideas and set new standards for urban living. We believe the power of creativity fosters socially and economically sustainable communities and know that regeneration is about more than bricks and mortar. We are a team of experienced and creative developers, designers, marketeers, planners, financiers, creatives and salespeople – founding new places and leading the charge to new ways of modern, urban living. We’re passionate about creating an area where people from near and far will love to live, work and visit, where everything is underpinned by culture, creativity and community. On Greenwich Peninsula, London is transforming, a new place is inventing itself as the capital’s most boldly modern landscape. It’s an urban community with design and creativity embedded in its fabric. At Knight Dragon, we’re not constrained by convention. We’re drawn to people who are comfortable with the discomfort of ambiguity, to those who set their own high standards and to those who try to achieve what others say can’t be done. We believe that to foster real creativity and trust, you’ll thrive in a working environment with fewer rules and more autonomy. To make that work, we look for certain skills, attributes and behaviours as they represent the spirit of what it means to be successful at Knight Dragon. In short they inform how we recruit, retain, reward and develop people.

Melissa Le Clerc's Experience

I'm the Senior Digital Marketing Manager across brand/placemaking & property

1. What were, or are, the biggest challenges you faced going back into the work place having had children?

Entering a new role was a challenge as I had been off work for a year so I felt I had to work extra hard to prove myself. The first few weeks of leaving at 5pm were difficult as I didn't want to be judged as working less than my peers. Juggling work/baby when your child is sick is also a challenge too. Essentially, I didn't want to be viewed differently to my peers/colleagues because I was a mom.

2. How did your career change after having children?

I don't think it has. I've really enjoyed getting back into work and starting a new job as its made me feel like I've taken a step up in my career. I feel like I have a good work/life balance here too.

3. How do you balance your career with your family?

Having the flexibility to leave at 5pm makes such a difference as I can pick-up my daughter from nursery and spend some time with her before bedtime. My job is challenging and busy but I don't feel overwhelmed or that I need to be working all hours to succeed.

4. How has working for Knight Dragon enhanced your family/ work life balance?

It's been really good. I feel completely supported by my manager and there isn't the 'clock watching' mentality here. Everyone is treated like an adult which is really refreshing.

5. If you could give your ‘pre-children’ self, one piece of advice about being a working mother, what would it be?

Don't worry - it'll be ok and enjoy the sleep while you have it :)

6. What is it about this industry that appeals to you?

I think its more the company than the industry that appeals to me. I like Knight Dragon's approach to Greenwich Peninsula and the fact that everyone is passionate about their role within building Greenwich Peninsula. The arts, design and culture aspect of the role makes it unique and really enjoyable to work on.
