I first discovered my passion for business when I took on the role of Office Junior within an Engineering Manufacturing company. I soon progressed into the role of Head of Distribution Sales and after dedicating myself to this company for a grand total of eighteen years, I finally decided it was time to expand my horizons. I quickly began working in the Public Sector for Business Link NW, where I successfully gained my ILM Level 5 in Business Support, as well as an ILM Level 4 in Mentoring.
After initially meeting Guy, Aldrock’s Managing Director, in 2011, I was delighted to be offered the role of Office Manager in April 2015. Within this diverse role, I facilitate the smooth running of the Aldrock office. From tackling admin duties and organising accounts, invoices and credit control, all the way through to quality management, and handling any HR/Personnel responsibilities, there’s rarely a quiet moment! As you can imagine, working within a busy, multi-disciplined practice can be challenging at times, but it’s a role that I thoroughly enjoy!
Now, with over 30 years of business experience under my belt, and after being crowned ‘Networker of the Year’ at the Enterprise Vision Awards in 2012, I have a collection of testimonials which affirm my professional work ethic. What’s more, I am proud to have utilised my wealth of knowledge and experience, in order to have founded my own company, Ann Ainsworth Associates, an award-winning administrative support service.
