I Started my working life as a 16 year old Commis Waiter on Board the QE2 Since then I have always been passionate about 1st class service with a first class attitude and have built this business with these principles in mind.
I came ashore in 1987 and found myself in Sales and quickly made my name in the Cleaning and Hygiene chemical industry. After successful periods at every level of sales I was appointed as corporate account manager for a leading pest management provider and immediately picked up the passion for the industry.
I started Whelan Pest Prevention and the main goal was to become a successful pest control provider as well as going into Franchising which we are now doing. It is our ambition to become the UK’s number 1 pest prevention franchise operation and the UK’s number 1 independent pest control provider.
I left college with a Business Studies & Private Secretarial qualification & began work for a firm of Solicitors. After a few years I left to take up a administration position within the Portsmouth & South East Hants Pathology Service which involved the receiving, distribution & collating of results of all the medical specimens in the region.
After that I took a position with a regional Building Society. I began working as Office Manager for Whelan Pest Prevention in 2014 and thoroughly enjoy the active roll in ensuring the office runs smoothly enabling the operatives to do the jobs. As the Company has moved into a new and exciting period of franchising it is always a pleasure to meet prospective Franchisee’s & support them through the process of joining Whelan Pest Prevention.
Outside of work, I enjoy walking the family Labrador, attending local football matches & dining with friends.
My name is Julie Hayes, I am 50 years old and I have been married for 32 years. I started my work life in my family’s business working with my Dad, my Brothers and its where I met my Husband, and now I’m enjoying working for this family business.
Most of my working history is in sales, internal and field sales, and customer services. Everyday is different and that’s why I like it so much.
Outside of work, I am addicted to working out, I love riding my bike when the weather lets me and going for walks in the countryside where I live, but the thing I love to do most of all is spend time with my family especially my niece and my two great nephews.
