Hayley Defoe

Office Support Exec at Zing Insights

I joined Zing in December 2019 from a PA/secretarial background.  My role is to support the rest of the Zing team with admin tasks, travel and car hire bookings etc.  I have an Open University degree in English, Accounting and Management which I completed over six years whilst working full time.  The English certainly comes in useful for proofreading reports; I am a bit of a spelling, punctuation and grammar geek.


Outside of work I have two young daughters whose after-school activities and social lives keep me busy, I seem to spend most weekends at a children’s party!  When I get the chance I love to bake a cake, go to a music or comedy gig or just catch up with friends over a coffee.


Favourite food: chicken pasanda and pilau rice, every time.

Favourite drink: a latte or Sailor Jerry and coke, dependent on the occasion and time of day!

Favourite film/TV show: I’ve followed Cold Feet since the very beginning.  Mike Bullen is a genius screenwriter.

Favourite activity: if I had a free day to do whatever I wished it would have to be a spa day and afternoon tea – bliss.

Favourite book: David Nicholls is a brilliant author who creates real characters you can empathise with.  My favourite book of his has to be Starter for Ten closely followed by One Day.
