Meet Aimee Norcross, our brilliant Executive Assistant.

Aimee joined the Simply family back in October 2018 after being headhunted by a recruitment professional. Aimee came in for an interview and I instantly knew that she was the right person to have by my side. The rest, as they say…is history!

Aimee is our very own multi-tasking extraordinaire and plays an integral role at Simply. Working closely alongside myself and our Director Paul, it was essential that our Executive Assistant was somebody who was efficient, organised and had the flexibility to jump between a variety of tasks. We found all of this (and more) in Aimee.

As a mum of a toddler, Aimee had plenty of experience juggling lots of things at once which is why we knew she’d be the perfect person to work closely alongside us. Since joining two years ago, Aimee has shown time and time again that she really is the queen of organisation, doing a smashing job of balancing motherhood with her role at Simply. As a working mum myself, I know that this isn’t always an easy task!

Often wearing a number of different hats throughout the day, Aimee truly does keep the wheels turning at Simply, helping to keep everyone (and everything) organised and on track. Her daily tasks are wide ranging and can include anything from booking appointments or meetings to managing Simply’s social media channels and general admin. Not to mention, booking training courses, liaising with our clients and supporting our staff. Aimee never fails to amaze us with what she can achieve in a day.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, Aimee has needed to take on additional vital roles in order to support the business, and the rest of the team. In true Aimee style, she has quickly learnt the skills required to complete each task, and has excelled at doing so.

As part of this support, Aimee has jumped straight in to support our Hire Desk and accounts department, by answering driver and client queries. Typically, driver queries relate to getting access to client’s sites while customer queries tend to be about the estimated time of arrival for our services. Aimee has also supported the team with invoice queries too. In order to achieve all of this, Aimee has further developed and expanded her knowledge of driver routes and our databases. This isn’t an easy task but Aimee has picked this up really quickly and has been an invaluable support to the business during this uncertain time. Whilst Aimee’s knowledge has helped Simply to continue delivering excellence and exceeding expectations for clients, she has certainly exceeded our expectations too!

Aimee is a true advocate for the saying ‘you learn something new every day’ and always does so with a smile on her face. Aimee’s positive attitude and calming approach is infectious and rubs off on the whole team, once again highlighting the great impact Aimee has on everybody at Simply.

We asked Aimee what her favourite thing about working with us is: “For me, it’s got to be how welcoming everyone at Simply is. When I first joined the company, the team welcomed me straight into the Simply family and made a real effort to integrate me into the team.

I love the fact that everyone is willing to help each other out and all go above and beyond to do so. Simply has really created a positive culture where everyone is welcome and I am so proud to be a part of this.”

Over the past couple of years, we’ve been so proud to see Aimee flourish in her career and watch her confidence grow. Aimee has consistently impressed us as she steps up and embraces every challenge that is presented to her. Aimee has continued to aid the on-going success of Simply and by taking on new roles and learning new skills will continue to do so.

There really is no stopping Aimee. She has grown from strength to strength on both a skills and confidence level. As somebody who works so closely with Aimee, she provides me, and the rest of the senior team, with the reassurance that everything is always under control and in her capable hands.

When I reflect back on when I first met Aimee and her first day with us back in October 2018, I knew in my gut she was the right person to have by my side. Two years on this has been proven tenfold. Not only because of how hardworking she is or how fantastic she is at her role but also because of what a perfect fit she is for the Simply family and the support she offers for every single member of our team.

Thank you for all your hard work Aimee, you are an absolute delight to work with and it’s a real pleasure to have you as part of the Simply family.
