Winning that contract towards the end of last year was a major boost for us, we’re a very ambitious company so rather than sit on our laurels I decided to ensure that we invested in the best possible people we could to take the company forward and continue our growth.” Said Andrew Trotter, Global Lingo’s founder and Managing Director.
To continue the ambitious development of Global Lingo seven key positions have been filled in the second half of last year to augment the original team. Gill Hurst, Stephen Hale and Jessica Fell have vast experience having worked at language agencies in the Leeds area previously. Alex McIntyre, Melanie Crewe and Karl Eastwood are new to the industry and bring a fresh approach to the business. Fiona Lindley originally joined Global Lingo as a graduate intern, but impressed the team so much that she was offered a full-time position.
Fiona said “Securing the internship was a great opportunity for me, from the word go I was given responsibility and important tasks. To be offered a full time role after was a wonderful surprise and I grasped it with both hands, I’m having a great time and really love working here.”
As well as the expansion in Leeds, Global Lingo has also moved to new offices in the City of London placing them at the heart of the world’s financial hub.
