Being able to progress within a business is an important factor for many people and Laura Oakley has put her desire to improve herself into practice at Greenhous Ford in Newtown.

Laura lives in Caersws and was educated locally. She says of her early career, “I worked in Morrisons for 7 years and did all sorts of jobs, but I had a need for full time employment and saw an opportunity come up at Greenhous Ford as a valeter. I already knew people at the dealership and was really pleased to get the job.  After two years an opportunity came up in sales and I grabbed it with both hands.

“I have an ambition to better myself and I have enjoyed selling vehicles. The team here have really looked after me. In my spare time I walk my dog and go to the gym and I am really looking forward to travelling around the world. Australia, Thailand, the USA and South America are on my wish list. I also want to get my own house eventually.”
