Zoe Postgate

General Manager

Hi, my name is Zoe and I am the General Manager here at Chater Lodge.

Having worked in care since leaving school, I have worked my way up from apprentice to my current senior position. Most of my time at Chater Lodge has been spent as a Deputy Manager, but I was promoted to General Manager in July 2017.

I enjoy making people laugh and feeling loved, taking on new challenges and gaining knowledge through experience and training.  

I spend my time outside of work keeping fit, walking my dogs and sat in front of a fire reading about my favourite subject of Greek myths!
