I was drawn to Ashdown Phillips by the opportunity to enter a profession that I have always been highly interested in. The office matches outstanding professional standards to a friendly and highly enjoyable atmosphere that makes it a fantastic place to be.

Our aim in Credit Control is to provide the best service we can for our clients and occupiers.
We offer a friendly, consistent and personal service, backed by experience and understanding of the challenges and quirks of the property management field.

I was drawn to Ashdown Phillips by the lovely family feel, amazing people and the flexible work/life balance that fits around my family. Everybody is brilliant at their jobs, and there's always somebody to willing to help if you need it.
When I am not working, I am busy taking care of my daughters and running them around to all their various activities. Family time is so important to me, and also spending time with my friends. I especially like visiting the coast, there's something so wonderful about the sea. If it's a beach in a tropical climate with white powdery sands then all the better.
Anything from my younger clubbing days can get me on the dance floor but grown up me would say Hips don’t lie by Shakira. The scariest thing I’ve ever done is bungee jump – young and fearless – or so I thought!

Family is a big part of my life – I always like to make sure my friends and family are happy and well and I love sending little gifts in the post to let them know I am thinking of them!
Accounts Payable Team Leader
I joined the Accounts department in September 2020 and immediately felt like a part of the team thanks to the warm welcome and support offered by my colleagues. People look out for each other and there is always someone to ask if you need some advice.
I think that this is what helps us stand out and enables us to offer a great service - everyone pulls together to ensure that our customers are happy and you never feel like you are on your own if you have a problem.
In my free time I enjoy spending my time with my friends and family (and running around after my 4 year old!). We have recently moved to the south coast and enjoy spending as much time as we can at the beach or finding a new coffee shop to visit – I love coffee!
