WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR JOB?

Helping people, whether it’s clients or colleagues – it makes me very happy to feel as though I’ve helped somebody.  That and being part of a great work family.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK AT HARRISON’S?

Can I remember that far back?!!  34 years ago I came here straight from college, when we were predominantly a steeplejack company – I was really interested in the business.  I’ve had quite a few varying job roles within the Company, there’s always an opportunity to progress.

WHAT MAKES HARRISON’S DIFFERENT TO OTHER COMPANIES?

We’re a family – we care about all our clients whether they’re large companies or individuals.  We’re friendly northerners and will always go the extra mile for our clients. Harrison’s has a long history as a family run business with a reputation for supplying high quality products and excellent customer service.

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

One of the great things about Harrison’s is that no two days are the same!   Usually processing orders, answering the phone and helping clients and colleagues with queries. Also working on business improvement projects and working on Standard Operating Procedures.

IF YOU COULD TRY ANOTHER PROFESSION, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I’d love to work as a counsellor or therapist of some kind, I love talking (anybody who knows me will agree!!) and to feel I was helping improve somebody’s life in some way would be amazing. Failing that, I’ve always wanted to be a florist too.

FAVOURITE HOBBIES / INTERESTS OUT OF WORK?

Watching my daughter in her gymnastics training, looking after our large family of guinea pigs (we currently have 9).  Also sewing, reading and watching tv (and I also love ironing as long as I have a glass of wine handy!).

WHAT WOULD YOUR COLLEAGUES SAY ABOUT YOU?

That I’m the crazy guinea pig lady and I fall over a lot!!  I think they’d also say I was helpful, caring and loyal – with a very strong attention to detail.
