Mandy Jones

Hello, I'm Mandy and my role is Senior Exhibition and Events Officer; I support the team of Supervisors to try and ensure that the centre runs as smoothly as possible and look for opportunities to host new exhibits and events.

I started working here as a Science Communicator when the centre first opened in 2003 and have enjoyed working here ever since in a number of roles and dealing with a variety of day-to-day issues.

I work closely with the Management and Office teams to develop future plans and identify new markets and opportunities as well as to try and identify and secure funding for the centre.

On a day-to-day basis I oversee stock ordering, finance and payroll submissions, Health and Safety compliance, along with any other site issues that may arise.

My previous roles have included Painter & Decorator, Mobility Aids Sales Assistant, Relief Manageress for Greenalls Brewery, Waitress, Nail Technician and, of course, in my spare time mother and grandmother to 2 daughters, 3 step-children, 4 beautiful granddaughters and 2 handsome grandsons.

During my spare time I enjoy travelling, entertaining, reading and on pleasant evenings — spending time in the garden.
