Prior to Doris I was working as a Purchase Ledger for Costa Coffee head office and before this I was managing the Friends themed coffee shop Central Perk. I never thought I had the skills to work in Tech. Doris has been great at placing me in a role that I have some background knowledge of but also developing my skills further and sending me on a range of training courses and self-development days which I love.
My first assignment with Doris is working as a Finance Analyst at Co Op Group Head Office in Manchester where I began in March 2018, I work on the RBT (Retail Business Transformation) Programme and look after a lot of the resource and Purchase Order budgets for the programme. This means I get to deal with a lot of the major senior Stakeholders for the company which is really exciting.
In my spare time I love to read and set up the Doris book club which runs once a month in Manchester and Liverpool!!
