Gill joined the Helen Arkell Assessment/Reception team in 2010, and is now Assessment Manager. Her varied role helps the smooth running of all that come through Reception, from answering phone calls and enquiries, to welcoming visitors, and ensuring appropriate assessments are booked and that paperwork is dealt with efficiently.
Gill has a background in customer and in-house training on one of the first all-in-one integrated email, word processing and spreadsheet software packages from the days before “Windows” was introduced. She also has lots of experience of customer service and admin roles and gained a City & Guilds qualification to teach adult learners. She taught in a 6th form college for 10 years.
Once her children grew up Gill decided to change her work/life balance to enable her to go on holiday out of term time! This coincided with her arrival at Helen Arkell.
Gill is a keen walker and tennis player and also loves sewing. She is currently researching her family tree and brushing up her conversational Spanish.
