Raft of new appointments at Skipton

Skipton International has announced a raft of new appointments at its head office in St Peter Port.

The firm is expanding, with a doubling of staff numbers over the past ten years.

The pandemic and restrictions it brought meant that, unusually, a number of the new joiners had their interviews conducted online, via Zoom, from the comfort of their own homes. The popular video technology ensured thorough interviews were carried out while maintaining a safe social distance.

The new joiners include:

  • Mortgage Administrators, Lyndsey Elliott and Sarah Looijenga

  • Compliance Officer, Adam Stone-Gomes

  • Customer Service Advisors, Sam Le Ray and Harry Arthur

  • Commercial Associate, Dani Barnett

  • PR Manager, Julie Todd

“Skipton has an enviable reputation locally as a great place to work," Ms Todd said. "I have always admired its commitment to the local community with the Swimarathon sponsorship and other community projects, and am delighted to join at a time of real expansion and growth.”

Managing Director, Jim Coupe, added: “Interviewing new staff via Zoom was an interesting experience for us all, but proved invaluable in enabling us to recruit during lockdown. 

“We value ambition, capability and commitment and we are extremely proud to welcome the new joiners to the Skipton family.”
