After graduating from Crawley College, my first full-time job was at the RAC Head office in Croydon. Realising that it wasn’t for me, I moved to the Caravan Club in East Grinstead. I started in the ‘membership department’, then progressed to Relief Reception, during busy times, then to Assistant Editor, quickly followed by Deputy Editor for their Sites Directory department.
I met my husband through Radio Queen Vic, (instigated by my dear Mum) and within a year we got married. I left the Caravan Club in 1990 to have our first child. After our second child, and a 3-year break I decided I wanted to keep my skills going. So I started my business (then VA Sussex, secretarial services) in 1995, working around our family.
Over the years business has progressed and evolved through big changes in technology, and I’ve added considerably to my skill set. Then, due to the demand in CV Writing, I started Premium CVs, CV writing and SJE Marketing, which are both still running successfully.
