A Day in the Life of Our Quiz Master and Cooking Legend Lauren Faulkner

Hi! I am Lauren / Lozza or Faulks as some people might call me! I am a Mad Mank originating from Mancunia as Tony Wilson once said ‘This is Manchester, we do things differently here’. I have been with CE for over two years working as an Account Executive within the Uniform Team. As well as keeping my team giggling throughout the day, I currently oversee six of the uniform clients, including two of the teams largest clients and overall providing uniform to almost 300 sites. This involves dealing with any enquiries from clients, providing ideas for new ranges, putting together presentations to show clients how good their uniform range could be as well as dealing with day to day production flow.

One of the most challenging areas of my role is managing various roll outs of uniform, as we are often faced with very tight deadlines and copious amounts of garments however this is also one of the most rewarding parts of my role because as a team we always pull it out of the bag and it is great to see the end result! It is definitely worth the challenge!

My favourite aspect of my particular role has to be presenting new ideas to clients in a variety of way to ensure the clients have the best product range possible for them. I enjoy watching a range develop and seeing this through to the end, it is so rewarding!! Working at CE over the past two years has allowed me to work with some great people on a daily basis who are always willing to help and share their wealth of knowledge, no matter how busy they may be which adds value to a job in my opinion.

If I could be a celebrity I would definitely be Shirley Bassey – she has a banging voice. My hobbies include being an experimental cook, occasionally taking part in quizzes, spreading my sarcastic humour and photography. I love to travel and when I do, my camera is always a must have for the journey! As well as these, I enjoy different genres of music but if I had to choose one song as a favourite it would HAVE to be Moonage Daydream by David Bowie.

My nomination for the next day in the lift of has to be Josiah… PEACE!
