Elain Hughes

Name:

Elain Hughes

Job Title:

Business Manager

Experience and qualifications (including specialisms):

Over 30 years’ experience working in various industries such as printing, food & beverage, banking, and distribution. I have also gained an eclectic range of skills in people management, customer service, sales and overall business administration.

Describe your role in one sentence:

The driver of processes and administration that brings it all together.

What gets you out of bed on a morning?

Life….I love to live it.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Not sure about my current colleagues, but my last team described me as firm but very fair and someone who leads from the front with a very hands on approach.

What do you enjoy most about working for Ardent?

The people mainly, but also the freedom to explore what will or will not work in the environment that I have come to work in.

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

Mentoring which I have done for nearly 5 years and being an appropriate adult which I have been for a year and a half. I live in one of the most amazing cities, so it is good to give something back

What achievement are you most proud of and why?

First and foremost being a mum, it is the hardest but most rewarding job I have ever done.
