Kathleen Elliott - Marketing Coordinator
Hello! I am Kathleen; aka ’Kat’, ‘Kath’ and ‘Oi’
I joined the company In June 2014 and was tasked with the Marketing, Social Media and website build and maintenance for Bridge Systems Ltd.
Continuous improvement and creativity are my strong points and these are put to test in my role. My day to day job can vary wildly, that’s what I love about it!
Since joining I have learnt so much about radio, communications and the exciting world of online marketing. I am climbing a gigantic learning mountain and loving every minute.
P.S. - I am left handed, chatty, addicted to exercise, love fizzy Haribo, really a ginger and can roll my tongue.
Melanie Buttercase - Logistics Coordinator
I have been with Bridge Systems for 2 years and have learnt so much more about radio communications than I could ever have imagined! What I would have called a “walkie talkie” before; I can assure you that our radios are way beyond that.
As logistics co-ordinator my day is never dull ranging from enquiries for radio hires, to the general admin duties ensuring our business runs smoothly.
I previously worked for a local architect company and like Bridge Systems Ltd, they were also a small business. Everyone worked together which I enjoy as you are aware of almost everything that’s going on. Some say “I’m nosy”, I say “I’m observant”!
And one last thing, my coaster for my tea cup sums me up “Blether”
