A Bit About Lauren

My job within the team is to look after the day-to-day side of Finance. Travel has always been a keen interest of mine. Growing up in a family that loved to travel, I’ve been extremely lucky to get to explore a lot of places from a very young age. I have kept on travelling, trying to visit at least two different countries a year, even if it’s only for a long weekend! 

Working at NWS has certainly increased my appetite to explore the world!
