Lauren is Finance Coordinator at Cosmic for both the Devon and Somerset Positive People teams and although her role doesn’t necessarily position her on the front line engaging with our participants, it is hugely important in keeping the Positive People project running efficiently and within budget.
Lauren started her career in Finance early, studying a Business and Finance BTEC at college, followed by an apprenticeship with an accountancy firm as an office junior which saw her attaining her AAT qualifications. Lauren loves to explore new places, so after completing her apprenticeship she took the opportunity to spend a year working as a receptionist in Austria and Italy; 6 months of which in a place called St. Christoph during a ski season, where she learnt to ski and snowboard.
More recently, Lauren became an assistant manager and then interim manager at a Salon, where she was able to gain a huge amount of insight about all aspects of running a business. Alongside this, she was a full time carer for her mum, but has now been able to access more help with her care to be able to focus on her career.
Outside of work, Lauran loves spending time with her friends and family as well as going out on adventures and exploring new places. She enjoys spending time outdoors and taking scenic photos, as well as listening to music. She appreciates most genres so you could catch her listening to anything from the recent charts to Motown, soul and funk!
