Operations Manager/PA/Office Manager
I consider myself to be a highly motivated and very hard-working individual. I’ve had PA, Operations and Office Management experience throughout my working career, nine years managerial experience in a charity setting and previous experience working in a creative environment, all of which has enabled me to further develop my skill set. I think that I thrive under pressure and work well both individually and as part of a team. I feel I am an effective communicator, can turn my hand to anything and pride myself in being committed and always delivering a high standard of work.
I'm currently an Operations Manager and am responsible for, (amongst other things,) the day to day running of the business including Finance, Payroll, HR, Recruitment and all admin related matters. With the emergence of COVID-19, the business is really struggling, and my Directors have started talking about insolvency, which is why I've started looking for a new position.
Previous to working at Ingenious Construction, I was a PA/Account Manager at AR18 Ltd, working in the manufacturing & design sector. I’d been in the role for around 3 years when I was made redundant last November.
I have 9 years’ experience within a charity, I worked as a Wish Manager at Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity. The role was heavily administration based, along with having the responsibility of managing my team, including the process of recruitment and induction, I had a case load of around 35-40 projects at any one time. The majority of my projects included extensive and often very complex travel arrangements. I liaised daily with families and am used to communicating with people at all different levels and from all different backgrounds. Due to the nature of the work, no one day was ever the same and multi-tasking and flexibility were key elements of the role.
I am meticulously organised, able to prioritise my workload as needed and commercially orientated with strong presenting and networking skills.
