After graduating in Psychology from Manchester University, I joined Mothercare as a management trainee and soon realised that the world of retail was not for me. I worked in a London business centre providing office support to clients and then spent 12 years at our predecessor firm before helping to set up Telos in 2000.
My natural tendency is to focus on the detail in whatever I am doing and I get satisfaction from ensuring that the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed. Therefore, my role in Telos is well suited to me as I help to keep track of the finances. As Company Secretary, I also administer the company’s share ownership plan and support the board. I appreciate being able to use my skills in a firm which is dedicated to long-term sustainable success and whose values fit with my own. Being surrounded by so many ‘big picture’ people is a constant reminder that I’m different! However, Telos feels like home to me: I’m working with people I like and respect and I feel valued for just being me. I feel passionate about playing my part in the success of Telos.
