Katie started her career in 1997 working for Thomson Holidays as a PA. While here she studied and gained an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration. Part of the course requirement was working with various teams throughout the organisation. This provided invaluable insight into the dynamic of a large organisation and equipped her with the experience required to move on to her next role.
In 2002 she took on the role of Executive Assistant to President, EMEA for a Business Service Management software company. After 3 years of successfully supporting the President and extensive Sales Team, Katie was offered the opportunity to move into Project Coordinating implementation and after sales services, which she gladly accepted. This role involved travelling to client sites throughout Europe to ensure that SLA’s were being met.
She left in 2007 to pursue an exciting new role, closer to home in Essex, at DP World – London Gateway the UK’s newest deep sea container Port & Europe’s largest Logistics Park, as an Environmental Coordinator. Working on the project for 7 years she saw it through from a construction project to an operational port. Some of her responsibilities included working with UK Regulatory bodies to gain relevant permits and licences enabling the construction of the Port & Park, maintaining the Environmental and Social Management System and ensuring that staff members and construction contractors adhered to the policies, managing all Environmental Data reporting to the Region and conducting Environmental Site Inspections. Katie joined Jenson Solutions in July 2014.
