Meet Fiona Taylor – Secretary Battle Estate Agency and Lettings

Fiona Taylor. Secretary Batcheller Monkhouse, Battle

My secretarial career began in a hospital, learning the noble arts of audio typing and how to decipher doctors’ handwriting, both of which have stood me in extremely good stead over the years! I have worked for solicitors, social workers and the National Trust.  Redundancy led to a leap of faith into self-employment and a wider variety of clients , one included Batcheller Thacker, (the merger to become Batcheller Monkhouse took place in 2011) covering when their current secretary went on holiday.  In recent years I have given up my other clients and now focus entirely on Batcheller Monkhouse.
When I’m not at my desk I enjoy spending time with my partner, my family and my dog. Horses have always been part of my life; I help at local shows and enjoy my annual pilgrimage to Hickstead. I attempt baking, not always successfully, but the office are always grateful for cake! I I talk to pigeons a lot and have encouraged a family to take residence in the garden at our office in the high street Battle.

At the Battle office of Batcheller Monkhouse we are pleased to regularly support various charities, including MacMillan Cancer Support, and Friends of Sussex Hospices.
