Tribute to Jean Ashton

Intro 16/11/2016

We were very sorry to hear the sad news that Jean Ashton, a lovely lady, has passed away after a short illness.

Jean registered with Intro for “temp” work following a successful business career with some apprehension as she felt her mature years were prohibiting her from finding suitable employment. However, the opposite proved to be the case. Jean worked for many years as an Intro “temp” in several departments of the NHS throughout the Borough, fitting in quickly and efficiently with new colleagues, technology and systems. She received glowing praise following each assignment due to her no-nonsense work ethic which was respected by all who met her. Reluctantly at the age of 73 due to internal policies within the NHS she transferred from Intro to direct employment.

Following Jean’s retirement from the NHS she continued to work on a voluntary basis on the Help Desk at Wigan Infirmary until the last couple of months - aged 84.

From our Sales Director Alan:

As a consultant looking after Jean at the time I can honestly say that I have never known a more remarkable candidate that at the tender age of 73 was still working for me. Never once did I hear Jean complain or take time off due to sickness. Jean was never late despite travelling from one side of Wigan to the other and she represented our agency tremendously well receiving glowing reports from her Supervisors and Managers. Jean is a credit to the people of Wigan and will always be fondly remembered by myself as a dedicated, loyal and trustworthy temporary worker.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this sad time.
