- What is your role at Confex and how long have you worked here?
I work in the accounts department; my main responsibilities include inputting supplier invoices, chasing suppliers for credits and approving credits for our customers- along with a lot of problem solving! I have worked here nearly 2 and a half years after joining full time in 2015. Before this I used to do temporary work here during my college/university breaks.
- What did you do before joining Confex?
I studied Art & Design at college which then led on to me studying a 3 year course at university in Primary School Teaching. Since then I've worked in varied jobs from a Primary School to a Dating Agency!
- What do you do when you’re not at Confex?
I like to spend my time relaxing at home or going out for meals with friends and family. I also like to draw and do some photography in my spare time.
- If you were able to retire tomorrow, how would you spend your time?
I think I would like to still work on a part time basis (I think I would get too bored!) I would love to have my own studio and do artwork all day if I could!
- Who inspires you?
I'm always very inspired by people who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in and who fight for equality in this world.
- What type of business would you go into, if it wasn’t wholesale?
An Art & Design business or a company that creates resources for teachers and pupils at school.
- What is the most interesting place you have visited and why?
I went to Lanzarote about 10 years ago, there is a resident artist there called César Manrique who has very quirky sculptures dotted around the country and visited his home which is quite spectacular and awe inspiring for budding artists!
- What do you like about working at Confex?
I really enjoy working in a small team, it definitely makes me feel valued. I also enjoy how no two days are really the same with the varying amount of enquiries that come in and how I have to use my investigation skills to solve certain problems.
