Debbie Browne - Admin Assistant
I have worked in the UNISON office based in Chester for over 12 years, previously Cheshire County Branch now West Cheshire and Cheshire East branch. My experience pre UNISON was with Cheshire County Council, working in schools Queen’s Park High School and Chester Catholic High School where I worked for a total of 12 years. Prior to leaving employment to have a family I worked in Cheshire County Council Student Awards and prior to that Chester College of Further Education now known as West Cheshire College. I love working in the branch helping members, it is so rewarding being able to assist people who sometimes contact the branch feeling so desperate and are often relieved to have spoken to someone at the end of a telephone. The role of the branch staff is varied. It is a very busy office with never a quiet moment but speaking for myself I would not have it any other way!

I’m the newest recruit to Unison Cheshire East currently located in the Chester office and working alongside West Cheshire in an admin support role.
I joined Unison in April 2010 following a temporary contract with Cheshire East Council having previously worked in PA/Secretarial roles in the private sector.
I am keen to learn from my colleagues and enjoy working in a challenging, but enjoyable, environment.
