Meet Fiona Taylor – Secretary Battle Estate Agency and Lettings
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 – twice – led to a leap of faith into self-employment and a wider variety of clients – including Batcheller Thacker, (the merger to become Batcheller Monkhouse took place in 2011) covering when their secretary went on holiday. In recent years I have given up my other clients due to lack of hours in the day and now focus on Batcheller Monkhouse.
When I’m not at my desk I enjoy spending time with my partner, my family and my dog. Horses have a part in my life; I help at local shows and enjoy my annual pilgrimage to Hickstead. I attempt baking, not always successfully, and I talk to pigeons a lot.
