Where have you joined SpinMe Imaging House from? (Your past experience)
I have joined SpinMe from a Marketing company called Tangent, where I and my then manager were account managers for various clients.
My job was to look after client accounts, resolve any issues they had with their website, ordering any POS (Point of Sale) and invoicing/chasing payments for the work we had done for them.
What interested you in being an Account Administrator at SpinMe?
I was being made redundant from Tangent-(my old placement of work) after 22 years and one of my colleagues heard that Margaret, who is the Finance Manager at SpinMe, was looking for an Accounts Assistant.
My colleague told Margaret about my pending redundancy and I got asked to send over my CV. Soon after I got interview for SpinMe. From this, to my utter delight (& relief) Margaret offered me the job and I am and will be forever grateful to her for giving me the opportunity to work here at SpinMe.
What interests do you have?
I am a member of a ladies Skittles League and we are in Premier B, which is the second from the top league –although not, because of my scores lately………..
I do a lot of reading and I am kept fairly busy with my Grandchildren whose ages range from 3 months to 11 years.
What does your typical day look like? (all the way from breakfast through to relaxing after work)
Alarm goes off at 5.40am but more often than not, I press the snooze button until 6.15am ish. I will then drag myself out of bed, make a cup of tea and watch the news for a bit.
After that I will get in the shower, get ready for work, and usually have my breakfast at my desk at work with a nice hot cuppa.
Once Margaret gets into work, she lets me know if there is anything she needs me to do in particular besides the norm, then I will get on with my day at work.
After work, I am usually visiting one of my children and grandchildren or other members of my family.
Sometimes I will also dog/house sit for a friend who has two lovely dogs. Raffi is a Leonberger which is a mix of Newfoundland, Pyrenean Mountain and a Saint Bernard, he is a lovely gentle giant. Then there is Cooper who is a Golden Retriever. He is as mad as a box of frogs, but a lovely boy.
What do you like most about your job role?
My job role is very varied and every day is different so it never gets boring. All of my colleagues are all so lovely which just makes everything much easier at work.
What would be your dream job?
To be a Midwife, I so wish I had done something about it years ago!
Your top 3 podcasts/books/films?
Oh too many to mention..but these 3 are a few of them-
Pride & Prejudice (the 2005 film with Matthew Macfadyen in)
Bridget Jones’s Trilogy
What is your favourite time of year and why?
Spring! I love it when the first flowers spring up from nowhere and the mornings get lighter. It is the promise of things to come, plus it isn’t too hot either, just love it!
