My Story

I am a very outgoing person who enjoys time with friends and family, and I love dealing with people. I have always had a passion for hairdressing from a very young age and always something I wanted to do and something I was good at. When I left school, I was lucky enough to have a very close friend’s parent that owned a salon and she gave me the opportunity to start my apprenticeship, in which I gained my NVQ Level 3 in hairdressing. As time went on, I took on more responsibility dealing with the suppliers and ordering all materials, products and ancillaries for the salon. Eventually I managed a team of 11 and headed up all training for the team.

I decided to start a family with my husband, and we had our little boy, who is the thing I love the most… unfortunately my husband isn’t very happy he’s now not the centre of attention.

I am very passionate about progressing and strive to develop in my chosen career and although I had loved my time in hairdressing, I felt I wanted to try something new and exciting for me. I decided to transition my career into accounting and finance for the last 4 years. Handley James have chosen to support me in this, with further training and development.


My Handley James

My role is to help with the financial side of Handley James, dealing with the day to day finance activities and working with clients.


Our Handley James

Handley James is a fantastic business; we have an amazing team of people and HJC is great to work for. I can see that the opportunities are there for me to keep progressing and developing, which is more and more apparent as the company is growing.
