Each month we will be interviewing a member of the team to give you a little insight into the day-to-day running of the business and get to know our staff better!
To kick off the interviews, we have asked Lindsey, our Operations Manager to answer a few questions.
What is your role at BCN & how long have you worked here?
I am the operations manager here at BCN and have worked here coming up for 6 years now. I am incredibly lucky as my job here at BCN is so varied and I get to be involved in many parts of the business and with various projects. I manage our admin and accounts team, ensuring the smooth running of our processes. I am involved in our marketing and I lead our SEO team to improve our google rankings. As I am responsible for managing our ISO:9001 accreditation, I am always looking to improve our systems and processes, implement changes and ensure our customers get the absolute best out of BCN.
Take us through a typical day at work for you…
First thing in the morning, I will try and get small projects or issues that need resolving out of the way, I write up blogs and check my emails to plan the day ahead effectively. Depending on the day, I could be sat with our in-house developers working on new functionalities in our system, or sat with the admin and accounts team to help progress any orders and projects, or working on our website with the SEO team.
What is the best thing about being part of BCN Group?
The best thing about BCN is the culture – we are a very hardworking, driven team who are lead by inspiring but down-to-earth directors. BCN is a really fun company to work for which is reflected in our low staff turnover and I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work 99.99% of the time 😉. Also seeing a company set aims and targets and being a part of achieving them is very motivating and satisfying.
What advice would you give to a new colleague on their first day working at BCN?
Don’t take yourself too seriously, work hard and be prepared to be a team player!
What are your aims outside of BCN?
A few people at BCN call me a hippy because one of my main aims in life is to grow enough fruit and veg in my garden to feed my small family for the year. My ideal weekends are spent planting, weeding and harvesting with the help of my 7 year old daughter.
