An addition to the Warren team

7th July 2016

We are delighted to welcome Jessica (Jess) Forder to the team. Jess will be working alongside Tracey in Credit Control and she brings with her a solid background in the banking industry. After studying Business Management at Leicester College Jess joined Barclays Bank with responsibility for monitoring fraudulent activity in the bank, including the interception of cheques that had been tampered with and helping customers avoid becoming victims of fraud.

When the branch she was working in closed down and redundancy loomed, she joined Lloyds Bank in their mortgage department. After a brief spell as a Sales Coordinator in the catering sector Jess was soon back at Barclays Bank as a cashier, covering all branches in Leicester.     

Jess will now assist our Credit Controller in the efficient running of the department with responsibility for liaising with our insurer on customer credit limits, opening new customer accounts and cash posting to the sales ledger.

Jess lives locally with her partner in Glenfield, Leicestershire. She says she is ideally situated for work being just a ten minute walk away, and she tells us the location is extremely convenient for the village pub….it’s right next door! Jess and her partner are keen followers of F1 and Jess is a supporter of Chelsea football club. Jess has recently got in to running; competing in the local ‘Paint Run’ 5k this year and the ‘Race for Life’ the previous year.

  • In memory of Chris Fryer

    Earlier this month we commemorated the untimely passing of a dear colleague, Chris Fryer. Chris worked in the role of Maintenance Engineer at our West Bromwich Converting facility, a position he held for some 15 years. Chris' colleagues didn't want the day to pass by without marking the occasion in some way, and befitting a man with the surname of Fryer the decision was made to indulge in that hearty breakfast fare....the fried bacon butty.
