“Find a job you love and you will never work another day in your life.” This sentiment is echoed by Vicky Lewtas, who joined Premex Services as an Account Manager last year.
Vicky is based at our Bolton head office and lives in nearby Garswood on the outskirts of Wigan. Anyone who knows Vicky knows she is animal mad, especially about horses. We asked her…
What does your job involve?
There are lots of different elements to my role – from looking after the day to day running of my accounts to promoting new services that Premex are launching.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I would have to say it’s the client interaction. I love getting out and meeting my accounts – finding out about the firms and their needs and then working together on new projects or fixing any issues they may be facing. I love a challenge and I will always go that extra mile for clients.
As the saying goes “find a job you love and you will never work another day in your life” and I can honestly say I love working here. Everyone is very supportive throughout the whole company.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Owning both horses and dogs takes up most of my spare time, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I have two miniature Jack Russells, Lillian and Junior, and two horses. A mare called Kyra who is 25 and a gelding called Murphy who is ten. I have owned both horses for over nine years and I would be lost without them, but my bank balance would be a lot healthier.
I also LOVE shopping – I have a weakness for handbags. I can stand in Selfridges for over an hour admiring them.
When did you first start horse riding?
I first started riding when I was around eight years old. I helped out at a local riding stable in return for lessons. I bought my first horse in my late teens.
What’s your biggest achievement and why?
I would say it is my career to date. I have achieved a lot over the years and it has shaped the person I am today.
