Tuesday has been at Bott and Co since 2008 when she got a job as an Office Junior after leaving Wilmslow High School Sixth Form and deciding university wasn’t for her. She has more recently moved into the Operations Team from the accounts department.
Let’s learn a little bit more about the newest member of the Operations Team.
What do you like most about working at Bott and Co?
My favourite thing about working at Bott and Co is the friends I’ve made over the years. I really like the atmosphere at Bott and Co and the way that they put on events throughout the year for all of the staff to enjoy. Everyone at Bott and Co works very hard and it’s great to be rewarded for this and let my hair down.
What other roles have you done in your time at Bott and Co?
I have had a lot of different roles since starting at Bott and Co. The experience I have gained has been invaluable. Everything I have learnt in each role has assisted me in my next. I started off as an Office Junior and I then progressed to Post Room Manager. From there I have worked in the accounts department and done a little bit of work with some of the other companies we work closely with. My current position is in the Operations Team and I am soon to be joining the Flight Delay Team as they continue to have large volumes of work to get through daily. I will continue to assist in the accounts department in the mornings.
What has been your favourite role so far?
I couldn’t choose a favourite role if I’m honest. I have helped out and worked in so many different departments throughout the years and I have enjoyed being a part of all of them. Each one is so different to the other but all fit well together. I suppose I’m just lucky to be able to do so much within the company #KnowledgeIsPower.
Outside of work, what do you enjoy doing?
I play football for Egerton Ladies which takes up at least three days of my week. If I’m not playing football I’m either watching it or I’m at the gym. I just like to generally keep fit, so when I do have spare time I like to relax whilst binge watching box sets and spending time with my friends.
How did you get into football and when did your big passion for Manchester City start?
My Dad took me to Maine Road to watch City when I was about 5 years old and I’ve been hooked ever since (I’m not sure why because we were relegated to ‘Division 1’ that year). I’ve had a season ticket for around 10 years so there must have been something in the water that kept bringing me back.
The first memory I have of playing football is playing a game of doubles on the school fields with the boys shortly after attending my first City game. I was pretending to be Georgi Kinkladze and it kick started from there. I now pretend to be Sergio Aguero on the pitch… I think I’d give him a good run for his money to be fair!
Where is your favourite place to visit?
Anybody that knows me doesn’t need telling that my favourite place to visit is Icmeler, Turkey.
I have been going on holiday there since I was young and continued to go when I was old enough to travel on my own. I have many close friends that live there that I have known for over 10 years and I class them as my family, so I try to go over as much as I can to see them and obviously get some sun! It’s a beautiful place and somewhere that is very close to my heart.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?
Well, I have been at Bott and Co for eight years now and I have done most of the jobs the company has to offer apart from the Directors’ roles, so in 10 years’ time…who knows!
