Personal Assistant (Current Employee) – Derby – 4 January 2019
I work with a fantastic group of people and have done since the company was formed from a Management Buy-out of Interfleet Technology Ltd from the British Railways Board. The company has always had a "family" feel to it.
I was PA to two of the founding directors of Interfleet for many years, and after SNC-Lavalin Inc acquired us back in 2011 my directors retired in 2012 and I moved to work for the Finance Director and his team.
A typical day now is managing the Finance Director's diary, forever juggling meetings around and managing meeting room bookings. I book various travel for both the Director and team, from train tickets to London through to flights to Australia! I also assist the Director in maintaining the Statutory Books for our UK entities, I maintain the Delegated Authority Models for all of our entities internationally and I also process regional payment runs for transmitting in the bank co-ordinating the response of any queries raised and following them up. Finally I provide general admin support to the Finance team as required.
Assistant IT Technician (Former Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 31 August 2017
Worked in office with app production team. Found it very interesting to learn what they did and how they do it. I learnt how to test apps and some coding which is very useful. The work place is relax-full and calm so you can easily get work done. The job was enjoyable and not too hard.
Project Secretary (Former Employee) – Croydon – 14 February 2014
SNC Lavalin has been one of the best companies I have ever worked. People working there have been fantastic and helpful. I have learnt many secretarial tricks and all the managers have been really proffesional and kind.
