After a career spanning 29 years with Post Office Ltd, starting as a counter clerk, through to managing some of the larger branches in South London, I finally became an area manager covering parts of the south east. When In 2010, I was offered redundancy, I thought the time was right to take stock and explore the possibility of working for myself.
I had a light bulb moment when visiting friends one weekend, and remarking on how lush their lawn was. They said they had a lawn care company that came in regularly to treat it. As working outside was something I had always enjoyed, I set about researching the possibilities of this becoming a new career path for me. It would enable me to retrain, and develop my existing skills gained over the years through working in my own garden.
After researching Lawn care, Greensleeves shone out to me as a company that shared the same values of customer care that had been instilled in me throughout my working life.
