Receptionist & Administration Assistant

Ruth is the cheerful voice on the phone or bright smile that welcomes you to our office. Ruth is a people-person and ensures that your enquiry is routed to the right member of the team.

In her spare time, Ruth loves socialising with friends and family, walking, discovering new and hidden places, and if that’s too busy, reading a good book.

Ruth says the bravest thing she’s ever done was a tandem skydive for her birthday!
