What’s your role and what’s your average day like?
As the Facilities Manager for Hillington Park, I am responsible for the maintenance and presentation of the Park as well as our six multi-occupied office buildings. Every day is different and there is always something to do from dealing with occupier queries, to being on site carrying out health and safety inspections. A big part of my role is managing contractors which keeps me very busy and has its unique challenges.
What do you like about working at Hillington Park?
As Scotland’s largest business park with over 600 businesses, I am constantly meeting new people and learning new things. There is a lot of activity just now with our development sites which is great to be a part of it and it has been exciting watching the Park grow and develop during my time here. I also work alongside a great team who have a wealth of knowledge and have taught me a lot over the years.
What’s the best advice you’re received?
Always be yourself.
What’s your proudest moment?
My boyfriend and I have just bought our first house which was a big milestone for us. It makes us and our families proud that we’ve worked hard and are now reaping the rewards with our own home.
Favourite film and book?
My favourite film is The Green Mile, which always makes me cry even though I’ve seen it so many times. My favourite book is Where the Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern.
How do you relax?
I love food, especially anything spicy. Usually you can find me cooking or watching cookery programmes to get new ideas. I also like to read and draw, especially if I just want to switch off from everything around me.
