To recognise and champion the hard work that all our temporary workers carry out daily, London Works has this month launched its ‘Temp of the Month’ competition. Throughout July, our client managers have been sending us their nominations for the most reliable, enthusiastic and hardworking temps of each month, and we can now announce that the winner for July is Kwame Lowe.
Kwame has been working as a Customer Services Officer at Avondale Square Estate, City of London Corporation, since May, and has settled in brilliantly, delivering an excellent service to all residents.
As Customer Services Officer, Kwame works at the front desk of the estate office providing the first point of contact between the City of London and residents with issues which vary from repairs to rent enquiries. Thanks to his outstanding work performance, he has also been asked to branch out into many other duties, from showing flats to potential residents to working with the repairs team. No two days are quite the same!
His manager, Wendy Giaccaglia, told us, “Kwame has learned so quickly, and uses his own initiative to get things done. The residents love him already because he is very friendly, but not overly so. He is very professional, and gets on with residents and staff alike. It feels like he’s been here forever.
“He is always on time, and conducts himself maturely and professionally. I am really impressed with the quality of his work and his professionalism. I can’t thank London Works enough for sending him to us.”
We visited the Avondale Estate offices to present Kwame with a prize, and he was delighted with his achievement. He said, “I have been working at Avondale Square Estate for 3 months now and have really enjoyed getting to know the Estate and the residents living here. All the staff in the office have been great and have helped me familiarise myself with how things work. I would like to thank London Works again for all the help they gave me”.
City of London has been a great partner and supporter of the London Works mission from Day One, and we are so pleased to have found the Avondale Estate the perfect Customer Services Officer in Kwame.
Watch this space for our announcement of the Temp of the Month for August!
