Amanda’s experience prior to working at Callow Capital is extensive.

She then held further roles in Telesales and Sales Support at various companies, frequently managing a portfolio of accounts and ensuring their smooth running, providing her with hands on experience of sales administration and  customer management.

Having honed her sales skills, Amanda then joined an engineering firm Slack & Parr Ltd, initially as a Production Administrator then gaining the additional responsibility of PA to the Operations Director.

Supporting many business functions including production, marketing, training and procurement, this role provided Amanda with a broad, holistic overview of internal business processes and challenges.

Outside of work, Amanda is no less busy, currently project managing her house renovation but when time allows she likes to socialise, bake cakes and get out for long walks in the countryside.
