Wishing you a happy and healthy Christmas

Posted on: December 8th, 2020 by Amy Maynard

A lot has changed since our last post. The world has been gripped by a pandemic and we have adapted to our new way of life. Here at John Jempson & Son Ltd we have taken all the steps necessary to protect the safety of our staff and customers. As Christmas approaches, we would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy festive season and here’s to a brighter year in 2021.

Meanwhile, in other news, Traffic Office Administration Clerk Ashlei Burgess has left after a decade with the company. She has taken a job at XPO in Leeds and will be sorely missed by the team. Our loss is their gain. She has been replaced by Steve Ansett who we are sure will do a fabulous job.

Staff changes

With the summer finally upon us, things have been ticking along at Jempsons HQ. There is nothing much to report this month, aside from a little staff reshuffle. We are sad to announce that Sophie Sheasby, our Palletforce Depot Manager at Robertsbridge, is leaving us. She has done a fantastic job and we would like to take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work and wish her luck in her future endeavours. The very capable Christine Cummings is leaving the payroll department to take up the position and we would like to welcome her to her new role.

This month we are full of good news!

We are beyond excited to announce that a lottery syndicate at Jempsons have won a rollover jackpot of £2.7 million – but they have decided to remain anonymous. Could it be you?!

Meanwhile, there have been some lucky winners in our monthly prize draw. Clive Whitling won a Kindle and hamper in the January competition and Malcolm Sargent was awarded a £100 Sainsbury’s voucher at the end of February.

Until next month!

Jempsons Commercials Office Supervisor Martin Pagden, 56, tells us about his time with the company.

“I started working for Jempsons in 1995. I had been a workshop supervisor for BRS in Tonbridge but was made redundant. After having a week off work, I posted my CV out to a couple of companies. Soon after, I got invited to an interview here and started a couple of weeks later! I began my career as a fitter before moving on to deputy supervisor and finally office supervisor. My day involves processing job cards and time sheets, planning MOTs, pricing jobs and invoicing, plus general office and vehicle records admin. The best thing about working for the company is the flexibility and the fact that it is a family-run business.”
