Syed Salman Gilani

Marketing Assistant / Webdesigner

Hi I’m Salman. I have been a volunteer of Chester Adult Phab Club for a number of years. My wife was employed as a PA/Carer for a trustee of the organisation, hence my involvement. Even though I lived in Pakistan my excellent computer skills were soon put to good use and I have undertaken many clerical roles during my time with the group. My first challenge as a Website Designer was to provide the organisation with a new look website.  Within weeks of arriving in the country I assisted Chester Phab Club to launch a new compacted and easy to navigate website. During March 2018 I revised our website once again.  I still update this website today. Apart for volunterring for the club, I work Full Time as Customer Consultant with Lloyds Banking Group to help and Support customers in Financial Difficulties.
