NJC cleaning supervisor, Patricia Leeper, will be retiring at the end of December, after working for more than 33 years at International House in Ashford.
Pat moved to Ashford from Lancashire when she was 7 years old and started work as a cleaner at International House on 30th June 1986, to support her children through college. Pat was promoted to supervisor by NJC, and her role involves ensuring that the cleaning is to a high standard, liaising with management and the reception team, and making sure that both the client and the cleaning team are happy.
Pat commented: “My job is a big part of my life. I enjoy being occupied and seeing the results of my hard work and I have always been committed to doing my best. In the past, I particularly enjoyed polishing wood, but that has long gone! I will be sorry to leave, but I am looking forward to spending a lot of time with my husband of 50 years and looking after my grandson.”
Best wishes for a long and happy retirement Pat, from everyone at NJC.
