I joined Ellacotts in 2002 as a PA/Secretary to David Saunders, Partner in the Business & Tax Services department, where I undertake a variety of tasks for this very busy and hardworking team. Prior to joining the firm, I worked for a local commercial flower seed company for a number of years.
As a PA/Secretary, I provide support to David Saunders and the rest of the BaTS team. Within this remit, I manage diaries, which will see me carrying out tasks such as making appointments and arranging meetings, liaise with clients and contacts over the telephone and arrange and sort departmental post. I also produce a number of written communications such as emails, letters and minutes, prepare new client set-up forms and offer cover on reception when required. I have a variety of tasks I carry out on a day-to-day basis, which is something that I enjoy about my role at the firm.
In my spare time, I have taken up cycling after completing the firm’s 50 mile Bikeathon in May 2017, which was in aid of the firm’s previous charity of the year. I also enjoy travelling and visiting National Trust properties, where I usually round off my trip with a delicious cream tea… resulting in even more cycling!
