Natalie Barker, PA to Godel’s CEO and CFO and office manager across its operations in the UK and Europe has been shortlisted in the Above and Beyond category at the PA of the Year Awards. She is shortlisted in a category of seven people.

The second round of judging will see Natalie face a brief panel interview with the executive committee from Robert Walters and Manchester PA Network, as well as key sponsor Make Events.

Natalie has worked for Godel for a relatively short period of time, since the end of 2016. However, during that time she has made herself indispensable by making CEO, Neil Turvin and CFO, Rob Nugent’s lives measurably easier.

As well as looking after two key executives in the business, she is office manager across the Godel operations in the UK and Europe that currently employs over 400 employees. This is a full time job in itself, but Natalie combines her PA roles and is universally praised across the company for her wider role.

Working for a company with international offices and different cultures adds more challenges to her daily work but she successfully manages communication between them, arranges international staff travel, but also manages client travel to Europe from the UK.

The awards ceremony will be held in the unique Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Thursday November 2, 2017.
