Hi I'm Kristy, I'm one of the Customer Account Managers. I have two children, William aged 15 who is Autistic and Catherine aged 13. As an army wife who moves every 2 years I have a vast understanding of the need for flexible working, especially around childcare, and the need for parents to feel welcome within the company they work for. I love learning about the views of the fantastic companies who advertise with us and their commitment to helping parents achieve a flexible working role.
Hi, I'm Nicki and I'm a Customer Account Manager too. I have 1 child Jacob who is 11 years old. Trying to juggle home life and work can be tough, but What's On 4 has made it possible to get the balance just right and to have the best of both worlds.
I like cooking, aqua aerobics and being with my family. Uniquely I can pat my head my head and rub my tummy whilst singing the national anthem!
