Counter Clerk

Went to school and completed GCSEs.

1996 - 2002
Various roles in customer service including a nursery.

I always enjoyed numbers and maths at school so I started working as a financial cashier for a homelet company. Unfortunately I was made redundant in 2009.

I worked as a dinner lady at Lincoln Castle Academy. The hours suited my home life well and I enjoyed the job, but I wanted more of a challenge and to get back into working with numbers.

I applied to Lincolnshire Co-op as a counter clerk at Trelawney Crescent Post Office in Lincoln as I felt my skills in finance would be well-suited to the role. I loved it from the moment I started!

I moved to Carlton Centre Post Office. Although the change was daunting, I immediately settled in really well with my new co-workers.

2019 - 2020
I love dressing up and raising money for charity. I’ve also used my colleague volunteering hours to help out local causes with things like revamping the equipment at public play areas.

I completed the Institute of Leadership and Management Level 3. It was a challenge but I’m really proud of this huge achievement!
