And our September winners are:

Clare Short
Training Supervisor, Personal Insurances Team, National Service Centre, Plymouth

Clare joined TH March in June 1987 as a Postal Filing Clerk. She worked in the Accounts Department up until 2011 when she transferred across into the Personal Insurances Team as an Account Handler. Clare is now a Trainer and has been nominated multiple times by her colleagues for a March Star Award. Here’s what her colleagues had to say:

“Clare is a great trainer and organiser. She has shown that she is more than capable of progressing staff members and getting them where they need to be 🙂 Well done Clare.”

“I feel that Clare is a core member of the March Plus Team. Giving support across the board, on a work and emotional level to her colleagues. A calming influence who is coping brilliantly with the demands placed upon her. We would be lost without her.”

Finlay Baird
Account Handler, Personal Insurances Team, National Service Centre, Plymouth

Fin joined TH March in July 2018 on a Business Administration Apprenticeship in the Personal Insurances Admin Team. After completing his qualification Fin was offered a position as an Account Handler. His colleagues said:

“Fin is such a joy to work with. He has taken moving from the admin team to the phone team with such ease and is doing fantastically with his calls and training.”

“Fin is always happy to help with whatever you put his way, he just cracks on with it all. He is a great addition to the team.”

“Fin has moved over to account handling seamlessly and is doing really well on the phones. Also for completing his apprenticeship, well done Fin!”

Joanna Hammett
Team Leader & Complaints Co-ordinator, Personal Insurances Team, National Service Centre, Plymouth

Jo joined TH March in August 2010 and is one three Team Leaders who work together to co-ordinate a team of over 30 members of staff. Jo has been nominated for a March Star Award in September! Her colleagues said:

“I think Jo deserves recognition as she is always happy and willing to help out and answer queries. She even gives up her lunch break to help others study for their CII exams when they need help. Jo is very approachable even when busy. She is full of knowledge and a credit to TH March.”

“Not only is she an excellent team leader, but she deals with complaints, underwriting queries and the bulk of all travel enquiries. Renewals have now been added to her work load which she has taken in her stride with a positive attitude.”

Well done to all staff members involved!
