Costgard jumps for joy!

Through COVID times companies have been, perhaps, keener than usual to check they are receiving the best deal on their utilities.  To keep on top of demand Costgard appointed an additional administrator, Gillian Jorge.

Gillian headed to the UK, from Johannesburg, South Africa, mid pandemic, with her husband Bradley and settled in the South West with their two dogs, Hunter and Tuck.  

Along with so many others, Costgard rapidly embraced home working.  Bringing a new member on board, meant the team used virtual meetings and calls to quickly build rapport. 

Gillian said: “Whilst new to the industry, I am loving learning and enjoy taking on challenges as they present.  The whole team has been so welcoming.  I look forward to my future in Somerset and at Costgard.  I relish the opportunities the industry offers.”

Known to many, long-term chamber member, Maria O’Sullivan, Costgard MD, said: “Gillian has risen to the challenges we face in the energy industry and is already a valued member of the team.  It will be a joy for the whole team to meet all together soon.  Gillian and Brad have certainly settled into the Somerset ways.  Brad has even volunteered to help Costgard with fundraising for Ferne Animal Sanctuary with a parachute jump in August!”
