Kat is a member of the team responsible for securing the UK border at Heathrow. In the first episode of HBBA Series 4 we followed Kat’s investigation of a traveller newly arriving from Nigeria.
Here’s what we asked Kat — tell us in the comments what else you’d like to know.
Where are you from?
How long have you worked at Heathrow?
How did you get into your job, and why?
I was an apprentice. I completed this and took on the permanent role afterwards.
What’s a day in the life of you like?
I never sit still. I’m super organised and always busy — both work and home life.
Favourite thing about your job?
That I meet different people on a daily basis and no two days are the same. Passengers are very interesting and I learn something new every day.
