Business Development Specialist - Ceebeks Business Solutions for GOOD

International Women’s Day Spotlight on our Working Women – Shannae Hewett

What I love about being on the Ceebeks Team…

The main thing I love about being on the Ceebeks is the friendly and caring environment to work in.  We all enjoy our work so it is a special place to be.

In my view, what’s different about Ceebeks compared with other firms is……

Ceebeks is a much smaller firm which means we know our clients a lot more personally and they aren’t just number to us.  Our clients can be confident in knowing that we are available all the time not just when things go wrong. We are here to help people  and make their lives a bit easier and less stressful.

What I love about my role is?

Working in the front reception has been great as I get to greet new and existing customers as they walk in through the door.  I love being able to set the tone for their visit.
