Employee of The Month Charity Donation – Forward Assist

Employee of The Month Charity Donation – Forward Assist

Meet our employee of the month, Ian Pearson

Charity is important to us at Allay, as is recognising the hard work of our employees, so every month we donate £10 per employee to a charity nominated by our employee of the month.
Our latest award went to Ian Pearson who works in our Newcastle office as an Applications Specialist.
To find out more about Ian and the charity he is nominating on behalf of Allay, we sat down for a chat…

How long have you worked at Allay?
I’ve worked here for six years now.

What are your day-to-day responsibilities?
My role currently involves maintaining and improving the mailing systems for Allay both inbound and outbound.
This includes the import of data from partner firms to our custom CRM systems.

Congratulations on being named employee of the month! What reason were you nominated for?
For my work and support to colleagues whilst working as part of the IT team recently.

What is your chosen charity?
I am nominating the charity Forward Assist, which does a fantastic job of providing support to former servicemen and women.

What made you choose this charity?
It can be difficult for veterans to adjust to civilian life, especially when they have only known a military life since school, which is where Forward Assist steps in to offer help.

How will your charity use the money from Allay?
To carry out the various projects it runs, from engagement activities to work in communities.

What did you want to be when you were younger?
I wanted to do a number of things when I was younger. One was to work in IT and the other was to join the RAF.

What do you like to do outside of work?
Spend time with my children and play PC games with friends.

If you were to win a PPI Case, what would you spend the money on?
If I wanted to treat myself I’d buy a desktop gaming PC, and to spoil the kids I’d add to their toy collection.
