Back to Meet the Team

Patricia Smurthwaite

  • Position: Payroll Assistant

I joined British Steel straight from school on a Youth Training Scheme. Throughout my time there, I had various jobs roles including secretarial, customer services, invoicing and finance. I remained with the company (albeit under various names changes) for 25 years, until the plant closed in 2015. I have been with Primat for just over a year now, working as Payroll Assistant in the finance team based at Stockton. 

Outside of work, I’m my happiest when out with family and friends. I love the outdoors, especially the beach - it’s my happy place! I’m also a keen cook/baker, and my Twin boys love it when the mixing bowl comes out as they know they are in for a treat!
