Ailsa Forrester

Here at Just R I am the Commercial Finance Manager and my role is to manage business growth whilst negotiating with new and existing clients.

Having previously been a proprietor of my own Post Office, I am well versed in the art of management whilst working to strict deadlines and budgets. After a successful 9 years, I sold the business and relocated to Carlisle becoming Operations Manager for the Post Office under the WHSmith umbrella.

Outside of work, my 3 children keep me busy and on my toes, whilst also being in the final year of my Business Management with Accounting degree at The Open University which aligns with my position at Just R and my future prospects!

I hope to develop as a professional and to find a career relevant to my studies and aspirations. Just R offer expansive opportunities to grow and there is also a strong focus on learning and development which help me feel that my goals, albeit ambitious, are achievable.

Sport 18

Do you have a favourite sport?

Football – I’ve always loved it. I used to play when I was younger but I’m a keen watcher, and I check BBC Sport and Sky Sport every day. I love the gossip and speculation. I support Manchester United, and my two sons now play too.

When Grow Up 15

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I’m doing a degree in Accounting. It’s always been my ambition, since I was 15 and did work experience at school, but I went down a different direction. I want to show my kids you can do what you want with your life.

Holiday Destination 09

Where is your favourite holiday destination?

I went to the Maldives for my honeymoon. It was out of this world; as beautiful as you can imagine it would be. I’d love to take the kids there one day.
Local Place 03

Favourite local place to visit?

Windermere. We’re very lucky that my wife’s brother has a house there and it overlooks the lake. It’s less than an hour’s drive so it’s a great place to go for weekends away.
