1. Who are you and what did you do before you joined us at Crawley Open House?

I am the administrative worker for COH but previously I worked for a home improvement company and prior to that I worked for the NHS at CAMHS.

2. How will you help our clients in your current position?

Based in the office it will mainly be through ensuring that housing benefit payments are correct for our clients.

3. Are you originally from Crawley?

4. Why choose to work at COH?

I saw the job advertised and it sounded interesting and varied. I thought it would be a really worthwhile cause as homelessness can happen to anyone.

I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by all the help that is provided to residents and people in need through the hostel and the Resource Centre.

6. What are some of the goals you would like to achieve at COH?

To undertake my duties to the best of my ability whilst being approachable and ready with a smile.

7. Like at any job, working at COH can become stressful sometimes, so what do you do for fun?

Any spare time that I have is taken up by my bulldog.
