Last week it was Director Liam’s turn, and today it’s Company Secretary Kate Cook’s turn to sit in the hot seat! Kate has worked at Butlers for over 17 years and has become an integral part of team so we thought we’d dig a little deeper to find out what makes Kate tick!
What’s your favourite thing about working at Butlers?
Our amazing friendly team…and the fact that I can bring our two dogs to work with us!
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
I have had a few tough jobs growing up but I had a particularly terrible time working at Burger King when I was a teenager. The manager regularly asked me to scrub the small tiled floor with a toothbrush and made me clean the urinals with one as well! While I was on duty feeding baps into the grill one day, I passed out and woke up to find my watch had been stolen! It was never recovered either!
How do you like to relax?
Walking our dogs, baking cakes and swimming in an open lake (but not in Winter!)
Name three people (dead or alive) you’d invite to a dinner party.
Meryl Streep, Stephen Fry and Ruth Davidson.
Where do you last go on holiday?
I went to Paris last Summer with my Mum and we stayed with my French pen friend of over 30 years and her family.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want with you?
A tent, a knife and a crate of Becks Blue.
Do you have a nickname?
Katie. My children also call me “the Fish”.
Name one thing on your bucket list.
To have a tattoo – and I’m booked in on Saturday!
If you were an electrical item what would you be and why?
A microwave – as I haven’t got time to hang around!
If you could know the total truth to any question, what question would you ask?
I would ask my dogs and my cat what they were thinking!
What question would you like us to ask the next staff member we interview?
What would you like to do as a team social and why?
