1.How long have you worked at Apex Lifts? 5 weeks.
2.What’s your background/what are your past experiences? i.e. qualifications etc. I have seven years administration experience ranging from entry-level support, to supporting Directors/Managing Directors, with four years within the construction industry. During these seven years, I've gained project management skills, managing several projects at any one time, including the project budgets.
3.What motivated you apply for the role, and what are you hoping to achieve at Apex Lifts? I knew I wanted to get back in to a team administration assistant role, but I was conscious that this could be quite mundane, which is why I was so pleased to come across the role at Apex as it offered a variety of tasks. Although I’m office-based, each day is different and I have the opportunity to go out to site to complete surveys and meet clients etc. And, as this is also a newly created role, I’m keen to see how my duties and responsibilities evolve.
4.What does your day-to-day job involve? Creating new project quotations, repair quotations and service quotations when tenders are sent in, updating jobs on lift data and liasiing with suppliers. I also accompany the sale consutants to complete site surveys, as well as preparing and completing presentations for post tender interviews.
5.What’s your favourite part of the job? Working in a supportive team and the variety of my workload.
6.What’s your favourite building in London? Difficult to choose just one – I love St Paul’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf and 20 Fenchurch Street (the walkie-talkie building), maybe because of the view from the Sky Garden!
7.What are your interests outside of work? Seeing family, socialising with friends, going to the cinema and music festivals and dining out.
8.If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be? Organised, motivated, passionate.
9.We’re off to the pub – what’s your order? Vodka and lemonade.
10.Favourite biscuit? Either bourbon biscuits or milk chocolate digestives.
