Gill’s background has predominantly been working with money and finance. Her first job after College was at the Skipton Building Society, and following PA roles at K Shoes and Express Foods, Gill moved to FMB in a part time role in 1990 after the birth of her son. She has progressed through the company and has undertaken a number of key roles before becoming Office Manager in 2003 and then appointed a Director in 2006.
Gill has gained industry qualifications over the years, including the advanced CII qualifications, H15, which focuses on supervision and sales management which has assisted her in her other role as the Company’s Compliance Officer. This is a role Gill loves, and takes great satisfaction in running a “tight ship”. Gill has continued her studies and has recently passed the CII R03 Personal Taxation exam.
Gill also enjoys the personnel side of the company, and loves to see young new recruits gain confidence, experience and qualifications and see them promoted into more senior roles. Gill believes that investing in people is vital to retain good quality staff and get the best out of them.
Outside of work, Gill has taken up golf and loves to travel. She has a “bucket list” of places that her and her husband would love to visit and is slowly crossing them off over the years. She also enjoys gardening and loves to walk their Westie, Buddy in the countryside near their home when they have spare time.
