Louise Sharpe Director
I started my career at British Rail in York working at the Property Board and Golden Rail Holidays, I worked my way through the switchboard, customer services, purchase and sales ledger and credit control.
I moved to Askham Bryan College, York and had responsibility for the Finance departments. I left there to come and work at North Lindsey College and thoroughly enjoy my role which has expanded over the years from Finance to Exams, Customer Services, Learner Finance and the Nursery.
In my current role as Director of Business Services I am responsible for the Ofsted Outstanding Children’s Centre, Fitness Suite, the Catering contract, the Print and Design unit and the Cleaning team. I work closely with the Head of Estates on day-to-day campus issues, capital works and the strategic direction of the Estate.
I am also the support staff Governor on the Corporation at North Lindsey College. I feel my experience in finance and the service areas I deal with mean I come into contact with such a wide range of people, learners, auditors, bankers, staff etc. that I felt my understanding of dealing with these cross college areas would benefit the role of Governor.
I live in the country near York and have a menagerie of 4 cats, 2 dogs, several fish and a lovebird! Because of the nature of my role no two days are ever the same! The work is fast paced, very busy and action packed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! North Lindsey is a great place to work and the people I work with are amazing.
