Welcome Aboard!

January 29th, 2014 by Gary Cattermole

We at The Survey Initiative are very excited to have three new team members on board.

Today we’d like to introduce you to our first ‘newbie’, Alison McKinney.  Alison accepted our offer of employment as Project and Quality Assurance Manager in December 2013 and her role will be key in the on-going development of the company.

We’ve grown rapidly over the last twelve months and it is essential we retain our high quality service. Alison will help us ensure standards remain high, as well as offering administrative and organisational support.

“I’m delighted to be working in such a fast-paced environment and excited to support a growing business, whilst at the same time, gaining experience in a whole new industry and developing new skill sets” says Alison.

Alison has over 16 years’ experience in increasingly responsible roles.  Her career began in the finance industry, in particular within the customer service, mortgage and life insurance sector. After 11 years of employment in this field for a major high street bank, Alison put her working life on hold to raise a family.

She returned to work in 1997 as a civilian clerk for the Ministry of Defence in Germany, then, after moving back to the UK in 2000, Alison began working for Local Authority within the Housing Service.

Outside of work, Alison enjoys a whole range of past-times including everything from cooking and growing her own produce to regular Zumba classes and rock climbing. She enjoys home life with her partner, two teenage children and cat and has been known to par-take in a glass or two of fine wine!

We are pleased that Alison has brought her Client Liaison and Project Management skills to The Survey Initiative and working with her is a pleasure.

Look out for future blogs about our other two new team members, Jackie Mitchell and Kath Reid.
