- What is your role at Confex and how long have you worked here?
I am an Administrator. I make sure we have the Quarter Figures from all our Suppliers and input them if necessary. I collate the Retro Claims, send a Report to the Suppliers and once approved raise an Invoice. When Members tell us they are trading with a Supplier but their Turnover is not showing, I chase for their Figures. I also input the Targets. I have worked for Confex for 8 Years.
- What did you do before joining Confex?
I worked for a local Insurance Company in their Accounts Department.
While my children were young, I worked in our local Primary School under many guises from Learning Support Assistant, IT Technician, to working in the Main Office. I also worked for a major Bank for 10 years before having my family.
- What do you do when you’re not at Confex?
I am a Member of our local Golf Club, so like to play as often as I can. I especially enjoy playing golf with my husband and even more so when I beat him, which isnít that often, unfortunately!
- If you were able to retire tomorrow, how would you spend your time?
I have two children who are married and I am blessed with three Granddaughters and a Grandson, so I like to spend time with them whenever possible and of course my husband Alan and our dogs, Cassie & Billy. Also, I would play more golf in the hope of becoming a better player!
- Who inspires you?
I cannot think of anyone who inspires me.
- What type of business would you go into, if it wasn’t wholesale?
It would have to be something involving Figures but not Banking, as I have already done that! Retirement would be better still.
- What is the most interesting place you have visited and why?
Whilst I have not travelled widely, there have been many places we have visited, which have been extremely interesting from Alhambre Palace in Granada (truly amazing!) to Blenheim Palace, also a fantastic place to visit and is on our doorstep! Also, I think the Dorset coast is hard to beat, it is one of my favourite places to visit.
- What do you like about working at Confex?
I like working for Confex because the work is varied and no two days are the same. All the Management and Staff are lovely and are great to work with.
