Margaret Urquhart, Mags, is our employee of the month for February.
Mags joined us in August 2014 following a training programme hosted by ourselves and Jobs & Business Glasgow to get unemployed people back to work.
Taught by Rebecca Speirs and Helen Love, our Regional Operations Managers, it covered industry regulations; Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, Health and Safety, Risk Assessments, Colour Coding, hands on cleaning. We also looked at more general skills like Customer Service, how to get back to work and the interview process.
Mags was one of the participants and she stood out from day one. She has excelled with Spectrum ever since.
During the Commonwealth Games she worked at major venues including Hampden, Ibrox and Celtic.
From the start we recognised her abilities and she quickly worked her way up to Team Leader.
Margaret went on to gain a permanent, full time position with us in one of the Glasgow schools we clean in. In more recent months she has then gained a further promotion to Team Leader. She looks after a team of four on a daily basis to maintain our continually high standards.
She has an excellent eye for detail and a wonderful personality which motivates everyone around her. She is a true asset. Following some additional excellent feedback from our client at the school where she works we are happy to recognise her as our Employee of the Month for February.
