Being backed by an Association such as ours is an influential ingredient for customers, who can feel immediately assured of our standards and working practice.

Sharon Ewert- Interlay Administrator

I joined Interlay in June 2016 to cover the administration duties and to take all calls that come into the Interlay Office.     My role is to support the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Secretary and ensure that all Interlay Members are kept informed of any changes that are made,any updates and related news.  For all Interlay Members and the general public I am the first point of contact either by telephone or email. If you have a technical enquiry or matter I will ensure that our Secretary receives the request and your enquiry is adhered to,  If I receive a customer job enquiry I will ensure that each Member receives notification of the job request and should a situation arise I am fortunate to have the support of the Interlay Team to try and resolve the matter before it escalates into a problem.  Whilst we strive for perfection we may not always be able to prevent a problem from occurring and my role as administrator is to  ensure that both the Member and their customer receive the correct information, guidance, support and very best attention at all times.
