Meet Our Managing Director
We want to introduce you to Seve, she's our hands-on Managing Director who loves to talk to our customers, in fact, we wonder how many of you will have spoken to Seve without even knowing it! This week we quizzed her over her morning cup of coffee in order to find out a little more about her day-to-day at Aspace.
Seve (underneath the Aspace star!) and the rest of the team
What does a typical day at Aspace involve for you Seve?
There isn’t ever really a typical day. I am extremely lucky to be able to work flexible hours, that means one day I might be answering emails at 6.45am with my first cup of tea, and the next I might escape at 3pm to join the kids for their sports day!
When I’m in the office I share my day between customer service, operations, finance and customers, it always keeps me on my toes!
What’s your favourite part of your job?
By far my favourite part of the job is talking to customers. I still love selling! Whether it’s jumping on our online chat system, picking up the phone or even taking a day out on the delivery van to meet people face to face, I always get a buzz when I know I've helped our customers.
What has been your proudest Aspace moment?
Well there’s already been so many proud moments in the past six months alone!
The biggest and best would have to be winning our Ecmod award for Best Children’s Retailer 2018. However I've also loved reading our outstanding Feefo feedback from you, our customers
What is your favourite Aspace product and why?
A Charterhouse bunk bed in dark grey! I love the cool dark colour, it’s so timeless and never goes out of style. Our bunks are the sturdiest I have ever found and the fact that you can transform them into two single beds and move them to spare room once the children have outgrown them (something I have already done in my household!) means they really do last a lifetime.
Tea or Coffee: I have one of each every day!
Day or Night: Day during the week but night during the weekend.
Inside or Outside? Outside
Top Bunk or Bottom Bunk: Top bunk all the time!
