Our second Community Champion of the day is mum of one Natalie Staniforth. Natalie is a Paralegal here at Price Slater Gawne and works alongside our Clinical Negligence team.
Some years ago, whilst studying at University, Natalie undertook a part-time role at the Tesco store in Baguley. In fact, this was where she met her husband Matt, who was also a student at the time.
A short while before the Government announced the Covid-19 lockdown in March, Natalie became aware that Tesco Altrincham was undergoing a mass recruitment drive; initially to support the growing pressures of panic buying on the store and to support the existing staff members. She accepted a 12-week temporary contract to work in-store every Saturday.
Natalie told us, “I took on the role at Tesco because I wanted to play a small part in helping my local community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although over the last few weeks, it has become much more than that. I truly believe that working at Tesco has had a really positive impact on my mental health during these uncertain times. It has helped me to get out of the house and mix with other people at the weekend. ”
Natalie is now into her 8th week at Tesco and is loving her current role of checkout cashier.
Speaking to one of the senior managers at Tesco Altrincham, he told us that they had begun to hand out feedback cards the previous week, mainly to see how the store might improve its customer shopping experience. Within just a few hours of the cards being distributed, Natalie received some great feedback via a ‘WOW Comment’… “The cashier (Natalie) was quick, efficient and pleasant to deal with.”
Well done Natalie, we’re proud to feature you as a Price Slater Gawne Community Champion!
Just don’t get too comfortable at Tesco, will you? 😉
