Workplace and Facilities Manager
What am I responsible for?
My job is to look after our workplace at Overton House. I am responsible for all facilities which includes ICT contractors and suppliers, and making sure we have safe and accessible workplaces for Barnwood employees, volunteers, and visitors.
What brings me here?
My career began in finance having trained to AAT level 4 and held several Finance and Operations Manager roles in the voluntary sector. My first with the Trust was Data Manager having been introduced through working alongside the Trust in 2011-12. My role has developed over time from database development to a broader responsibility for IT and systems and then broader still to look after all workspace facilities and health and safety.
What do I enjoy spending time doing for my own wellbeing?
I’m currently enjoying being a homemaker. Recently have had the benefit of quality time with my boys and the family pets. One of my interests is DIY and I’m just at the end of a major house renovation so we’ve spent time landscaping the garden and have built a beautiful summerhouse. (She/her)
