Co-founder of the Manchester PA Network, and Senior EA to the CEO, CFO and Global HR Director at PZ Cussons.


About Me:


I have worked at PZ Cussons' head office since August 2014 as EA to the CEO, CFO and Global HR Director it was a big change for me leaving behind the City Centre of Manchester and I wasn't sure how much I would miss the City and how I would manage carrying on running the Manchester PA Network alongside Mel.  In actual fact it was the best decision I ever made and I absolutely love my job although running the network is a bit more difficult I am managing just fine.


Working with great people, great brands (Imperial Leather, Carex, Sanctuary Spa and St Tropez to name a few of our portfolio) really makes coming to work a pleasure I also never run of out self tan or shower gel, and there aren't many days I struggle to get up in the morning and I am not just saying it I feel truely lucky to have the job I do.  No day is ever the same in our head office and there are challenging times but that's all part of the job of an EA and it would boring if every day was the same.  I was very lucky to travel to our Nigerian office and am looking forward to my first visit to Indonesia and Singapore later in 2017.


The network celebrated it's 6th birthday last year and what a crazy but brilliant six years it has been, watching it grow from 50 to 700 members has just been incredible, we've raised so much money for The Christie and exceeeded our own expectations.  


I feel so lucky everytime I attend one of our events that we are still succesful and that we are still getting new members joining us.  Bringing the PA of the year awards to Manchester was an absolute hightlight for me it was the most incredible atmosphere and being able to recognise some of the work our wonderful members do was an honour.


In 2016 was lucky to take home a WATC Rising Star Award it was a real honour to be honoured amongst some wonderful women.


In my spare time (which is a little limited!!) I am a dedicated gym bunny, I am part of our great team of Manchester PA Network runners who take part in the Manchester 10K.  I love shopping, travel and good food and ocassionally the odd glass or two of red wine
