Operations Associate Director
T: 01789 206125
I have been with Lodders since April 2001 having joined as a teenager – it was my first “proper job”. I am now Operations Manager of the firm and I am responsible for the facilities, overall operation of our 5 premises and the well-being of the staff who work in them. I also head up the administration and support teams, oversee the day-to-day running of the offices, and I am the firm’s Health and Safety officer.
The main areas I specialise in are: relocation, regeneration and office layout planning, contract negotiations and supervision of suppliers, contractors, technicians and utilities, budget management and cost analysis, the production and implementation of Health & Safety policy and practices, and recruiting, appraising and restructuring the office support teams.
I am a Member of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and have an IOSH certificate in Health & Safety management.
What do I enjoy most about my job?
I really enjoy the variety of my role, the challenge and satisfaction of the ‘big’ projects, and the face-to-face interaction I have with staff, contacts and clients.
