“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“Extremely personable and professional.”
“The work that has been done has been delivered beyond expectations.”
“Claire offers a very approachable, professional and balanced service, recognising her obligations to the Scheme but providing an awareness of the Employer's perspective. We value Claire's wider industry knowledge and the experience she brings.”
“I found the trustee training really beneficial, highly recommended. I am not a trustee, I represent the employer and I think it will be valuable for me in future, having a better understanding of the trustees' perspective.”
