Vel Williams, Senior Administrator
Before moving to Worcester in 1987 I worked in Credit control dealing with the general public and in the communications industry working with companies such as British Telecom.
My move to Worcester brought me into retail, an administration role with an IFA and then a number of years with the NHS.
Having worked for both the private and public sector I have brought a wide variety of organisational skills into my present role with Arrivista.
Over the past couple of years I have supported a local charity, Worcester Snoezelen, completing both the Birmingham and Worcester half marathons (walking only!) and organising a summer charity ball.
I cover the financials at Arrivista along with helping to organise our group events & seminars, enjoying plenty of client interface, networking and making great coffee!
