CEO

I’ve been the CEO of The Werks Group since the project back started in 1992. Alongside this, I have worked on other exciting projects including consultancy projects, regeneration, design and some extremely effective business support. I’m a trained woodcarver so love to make things with wood & I keep fit by walking, running & doing yoga. I have also recently edged towards a veggie diet which keeps my family amused!

CCO

As CCO, I am passionate about developing and offering great working environments for all our clients. I am a designer and researcher in the area of creative entrepreneurship. I have set up and run start up, regeneration and consultancy projects as well as writing business courses for Universities. In my free time I like to go sailing, spend time walking my dog along the South downs or getting muddy on my mountain bike.

SITE MANAGER

I have been with The Werks Group for the previous 6 years - starting out as a receptionist. As my role has developed, I have began travelling between Brighton & Hove to visit our sites. This allows me to chat with our great clients across all sites. What I love about the job is that no 2 days are the same and I am regularly kept on my toes! My love for music keeps me young at heart and I love to go see live bands of varying genres from Queen's of the Stone Age to Corrine Bailey Rae.

SALES & MARKETING MANAGER

Having started as an apprentice back in 2015, I have developed over the years into the role of Sales & Marketing manager. I am a huge football fan and have a keen interest in travel – spending 6 months backpacking across South East Asia in 2019. You will find me tucked away in my office at Werks Central or running around Brighton & Hove doing office viewings!

MAINTENANCE MANAGER

With over 30 years in the building industry, there is nothing that I cannot build, fix or put back together. I have been part of the company since it started back in 1992, having to deal with times where we had very stretched budgets. With a passion for a cup of tea and a football discussion, I love my work because we have a great team & clients who appreciate all that we do for them.

CAFE & EVENTS MANAGER

With previous experience managing both a hotel and restaurant, I am now in charge of both of our cafe & event spaces in Brighton. I am always looking for new exciting and unique ideas for events and thanks to being the mother of 4 beautiful girls at home, I am a great multi-tasker and able to tackle any problems or situations that may arise.

MAINTENANCE ASSISTANT

Dad to 4 kids, I am forever kept on my toes both at work and home. I am a trained mechanic, forklift driver and previously worked at a scrapyard for 5+ years – it is fair to say I have a vast (and random) set of skills. If I am not running around fixing things or sorting out problems across our 9 buildings, you’ll find me sat down at home binge watching documentaries and boxsets!

FRONT OF HOUSE

As a new member of The Werks Group team, I am relishing the customer service side of my role. I love to mix with our fabulous clients and am a mum to two fab daughters – keeping me very busy! In my spare time, I like to upcycle furniture, collage, sew and make greetings cards. I try to keep fit by going to the gym and cycling on the seafront- gale force winds permitting!! You may also find me in the pub with fellow The Werks counterpart, Laura!

I work part-time at The Werks in Hove where I love chatting and having a joke with our wonderful clients.

ACCOUNTS ASSISTANT

Based over at our Pier Werks building, I have been working at The Werks Group for just over a year. I love how the company is like a second home to me - it makes it enjoyable coming into work in the morning! Being based in the centre of Brighton allows me to feel like a part of the city and I love to be involved in different local social events. I also love to travel and experience new cultures!

BARISTA & FRONT OF HOUSE

Having always worked in hospitality and customer service since leaving school, I am extremely confident, bubbly and have a keen passion for keeping everybody happy. You’ll find me running our café and reception area at Pier Werks in Brighton. Feel free to pop in for a drink and a tour. Being based at Pier Werks suits my personality extremely well and I love being by the beach! I am the first point of call for any clients wanting a chat, a rant or even a coffee!

FRONT OF HOUSE & SOCIAL MEDIA

With a keen passion for both photography and social media, I have recently begun working at The Werks Group and am excited to develop and grow within the company. I am a true social butterfly who loves a good chat as well as a thrill seeker – proven by the fact I recently went skydiving for my 18th birthday!
