PA to Partners

My role here at Foolproof is to try and look after the wide-ranging needs of the Founding Partners, Tom and Peter; this can mean doing anything from trying to help manage their very hectic schedules, to making sure that their many meetings run smoothly, as well as ensuring they know where they need to be, when they need to be there, and that they have what they need when they are there – with their diaries it can be a pretty challenging task! 
 
Another part of my position means that I am responsible for arranging and assisting with many of the events that Foolproof hold, not least the epic and infamous Holy Flow Days, as well as the legendary annual Team Trip, which involves the entire team jetting off somewhere hot and sunny, for a few days much deserved fun; it is very much a work hard, play hard mantra here and Foolproofers make every effort to live up to both of those challenges!   

As part of my role I also enjoy booking new venues, discovering new companies and meeting new contacts who help us deliver on all of the exciting things that we do here at Foolproof.
 
I am loving my position here at Foolproof and every day I learn more about the company and what it provides as a user experience design agency. 

I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to live and work both home and abroad, including places such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Generally, I love to travel, discover new things, and experience different cultures – with offices in Norwich, London and Singapore, Foolproof is a great base to do all of that whilst working with a bunch of great people!
