Frances started work as a junior clerk in a glove factory in my home town of St Helens, Merseyside. Her duties were answering the switchboard, greeting clients and dealing with general admin. Frances moved to London in 1979 and worked as a Receptionist/Telephonist for a construction company that built Southwark Crown Court. She wanted to gain more experience, so she temped and worked for a variety of organisations including property companies, law firms, the London Fire Brigade, advertising agencies and the BBC, amongst others. She also worked in the evening as a receptionist in Simpson’s in the Strand and Telephonist in the Halcyon Hotel, Holland Park. She saw many famous faces!
Before working at Ruislip Dental Care in August 2019, Frances was a home maker for 16 years. Thanks to Jo and Charmaine, they have been very helpful, patient and have given me back my confidence in the work place. I think we have a great working relationship which creates a happy atmosphere and it helps to put the patients at ease when they arrive for their appointments.
Her faith is very important to her, ands she regularly helps out in the church and visits a local nursing home. She loves spending time with her family and travelling back up north whenever she can. Frances is always listening to music, playing games on her mobile, eating out, singing, dancing (whenever she gets the chance)!
