I have been working for CPJ Field now for over 2 years my current role is that of Deputy Funeral Service Manager, supporting the Funeral Service Manager, with the daily running of the whole Funeral delivery operation. I also still do the role of FSTM if not required in the office, which is a wide and varied role encompassing many different aspects, where no two days are ever the same.
I am also involved in the initial training of all our new FSTMs, supporting them in their first weeks working for the company, and showing them the ropes. The funeral industry is one that for many years I had ambitions of getting into, and I can honestly say that I have never looked back. My strengths, I feel, are that I am compassionate about my work and always strive to do the best I possibly can for our clients and their loved ones in our care. I can work alone or as part of a team and under pressure. Before joining CPJ I worked for South Central Ambulance service for 22 years, serving the public, this involved being part of a 2-person crew and alone on the paramedic response car. I did this for the first 19 years then moved to the control room, taking the 999 calls for a while then onto the training side of the company for my last couple of years. Outside of work my main interest is horse riding, I have my own horse and enjoy riding out in the countryside alongside my daughter. I also love getting stuck into a good book and spending time with my family.
