Introducing… Emma Jones, our Administration Manager

How did you get into accounting and administration?

After leaving school I wanted a job that paid, not a degree and years away from my family at University. I had an interest in computers and funnily enough graphic design (I got an A in my GCSE). I decided a modern apprenticeship in Business Administration was the way forward. After being employed by Preston College, the advertisement for an Office Junior at The Point (the former name for Forepoint Limited) came through, 19 years later I’m still here with more qualifications, headaches and more wrinkles!

What do you most enjoy about working at Forepoint?

I like the people here and I like the fact I have developed my own role.

What projects are you currently working on?

End of year analysis and database production (I know how exciting!).

What do you do when you’re not working?

I have two girls, age nine and one… So, if I’m not chasing after one, I’m telling the other to get off my iPad 😉 We also spend a fair bit of time in Morecambe at my parents caravan and just enjoy being a family. I also like to see my friends every now and again for a drink or two or three etc.

Tell us about a memorable moment about working here or a project you’re really proud of?

The job system, learning FileMaker in the background (database developer in the making).

Tell us a fascinating fact about yourself?

I have weird elbows.

What’s your favourite TV show?

In the Night Garden… Although I do like a bit of Emmerdale and Corrie.

If you were a brand what would your tagline be?

Sarky Clarky.

Do you have a favourite quote/saying?

“Put wood in th’ole”. Proper Lancashire lass me!
