Pamela is also the founder of Lothian Childcare Solutions, a Childcare Agency that recruits and provides childcare workers to families including babysitters, nannies and mother’s helps.
After establishing trusting relationships with families through the agency, Family Payroll seemed like a natural next step to be able to support families on their journey of becoming and being an employer.
Pamela teamed up with her business partner, Karen who is a part qualified accountant and an Associate Member of Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals, and the dream team was formed.
Meet one of the loves of my life – my adorable dog Barney. Both he and my son bring me so much joy every day. As a full-time working Mum with two businesses and limited time, I value our free time together so much; something I will never take for granted.
I have worked in childcare most of my adult life, in nurseries, in a Children and Families Centre and until 2017 as an inspector with The Care Inspectorate, the regulatory body for Care Services in Scotland.
As well has having a very good knowledge of the regulations around providing care and employing someone in a care role, through my other business, Lothian Childcare Solutions, I have also come to better understand the issues families face when employing someone in their home and the need to support them with a very personable and affordable payroll service.
My priority in life and business is to always care and find a way to help.
I have worked in accounting and HR administration for many years, there is nothing I enjoy more at work than balancing a bank reconciliation and getting stuck into an Excel spreadsheet!
However in 2020 I decided I wanted to learn more: I am now thoroughly enjoying being a student, working my way to earning a qualification in Accounting.
I consider myself to be an extremely caring and empathetic person, who understands the struggles of family life. As a mum of two growing sons, I have first-hand experience of trying to strike a good work-life balance, ensuring that both my children and my career are nurtured.
I am a passionate advocate for women’s rights and equality and truly believe that a woman can be an excellent mum and have a successful career.
