Joan-Meet-the-Team 

Joan
Managing Director 

"J A Milton's my baby and the staff are my friends. I have been an upholsterer now for 28 years. Teaching upholstery is a passion of mine; I love to see the smile on someone’s face when they realise that they can 'turn a pig’s ear into a silk purse'. 
I have made many friends through my work as a teacher and through my involvement with the Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers (AMUSF).
My other passion is watching Manchester City who were introduced to me by my husband, Dave H (not Dave Elsley). Dave and I are both season ticket holders. Come on u blues!!!"

Dave E
General Manager

"I joined Miltons in Sept 2010 as Supply Chain Manager and was made very welcome into a friendly, hard working, conscientious company right from the start.
I enjoy the challenge of making sure we have the right stock in to complete all our customers orders and make sure they are dispatched on time and to the correct standard.
I've been married for over 25 years with a 9 year old daughter I enjoy family time at our static caravan in wales, watching England football team, going to the cinema and socializing with family & friends."

Sue
Senior Sales & Customer Service

"Having moved from London in 1998, to the country, I decided to apply for a job at J A Milton’s, in December 2004, as a part-time person, three days a week, in packing and sales. Of course, I got the job, needless to say, and the rest is history!

I now work full-time in the Sales Department, as the Senior Sales Assistant, which I thoroughly enjoy. I am the eldest person in Sales, or, the old blond! I am a people person, therefore Sales is my first option. Nothing gives me more satisfaction, and a sense of achievement, when I’ve helped one of our valued customers, even if it is merely finding the right colour braid. My working colleagues are my second family - my first family, are my four girls!! Yes 4, very loud. My hobbies include: nice food (that’s why I’m a big lady!), doing my 16th century house up (which will probably take a century the way I’m going!), walking, crocheting, and a nice glass of red!!" 

Corinne
Accounts

"I joined J A Milton’s 11 years ago in April 2005 straight after I finished my Accounting exams. It was great to finally put my newly acquired skills into practice.
I very much enjoy my position here as it is interesting, challenging and what I really want to do. Not only that but everyone is really friendly and supportive.
Outside of work I spend my time cooking, socialising, walking and spending quality time with my two children."

Becky
Sales Assistant & Customer Service

"I joined J A Milton 5th January 2015, so I am fairly new and thoroughly enjoying it! The whole team are so welcoming I feel like I have been here for years!
I have two beautiful baby boy's called Harvey and Caleb who take up most of my time outside of work, I only work 3 days so I don’t miss out on too many precious memories  :)
I am a massive Disney fan, Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite followed closely by Frozen!
I  married my best friend in February 2016 and am currently on maternity leave after having another lovely baby called Caleb.

I have been married for 29 years and have three lovely daughters who have now grown up and one grandson.

My hobbies include repairing cars, going for walks and days out."

Chris
Sales Assistant & Customer Service

“I joined Milton in May 2015, originally part-time but am now full-time. I work mainly in Sales but also work in Packing/warehouse. Everyone here made me feel very welcome right from the start. I used to be quite ‘shy’ but I am now considered the ‘chatty’ one.

In my spare time I love to bake for my family and am never short of people to try my latest bake!

I also love listening to rock music  and my daughter and I enjoy a good ‘gig’. My other passion is football and I am a lifelong Stoke City fan.”


   


Lee-Ann
Sales & Marketing Assistant

"I've re-joined the team in November 2015 after previously working for Milton's for 2 years in 2011.  It’s very true, the saying 'there is no place like home'. From day one the team here have always made me feel welcome and I was so happy to see them on my return.

I’m known here for being the ‘class clown’ and like to keep them all on their toes!

My main hobbies are baking as I am currently attending a part time college course in sugar craft and I love to spend time with my two gorgeous sausage dogs Ted and Rolo."

               

                                                                                                                                              

Lauren
Apprentice stock control, warehouse and supply chain management

"I have recently joined the JA Milton team and couldn't have been made more welcome. All the staff members helped me to settle in quickly and made me feel like I was a part of the group instantly.

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music and meeting up with my friends as well as spending time with my family by going to visit them. I am definitely a dog person and love making a fuss of my dog Oddie, alongside dogsitting Bert (in picture). Because of my dad, I support Liverpool FC much to my mother's disapproval (she is a huge Manchester United fan), but she is outnumbered in the house by 3-1"
