Tell us more about your role and what it involves?
My role is Marketing and Office Administrator here at Bridgeall.
Where do I start! In short, a little bit of everything. I provide admin support to our Marketing Team and get involved with Finance and HR tasks as well as helping to run the office.
How long have you been working at Bridgeall?
I joined the company in January 2016, so over five years now.
What do you like most about your job?
I love the variety each day brings. I particularly enjoy helping colleagues and organising social events in the office, such as Christmas, Birthdays and team building events, and of course the annual coffee morning in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.
What does a typical day for you look like?
A typical day starts with my inbox and prioritising tasks for the day. I get involved with many different aspects of the office, so I don’t really have a ‘typical day’.
What is your background and what certifications do you have?
I’ve worked in administration all my life in a variety of roles including PA, Secretary and Administrator. In 2010 I decided to return to study and completed an HND in Computing: Technical Support at Dumfries College. I was a little nervous returning to study after such a long time, particularly as most of my classmates were school-leavers, but was lucky to be one of a few mature students.
Anyway, I did quite well, achieving the highest mark in my class and the SQA Centre Award for 2011/12. I also gained Microsoft and Cisco Certification during the course.
What is it like working at Bridgeall?
I love working at Bridgeall and proud to be part of a great team. I enjoy the supportive, positive culture from both managers and colleagues.
