Fleet Assistant for Markerstudy Group, Sam Knott, was shortlisted as one of three finalists for the IDEX Young Achiever of the Year Award by the Insurance Institute of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Sam attended the annual dinner with Talent Developer Vicky Jackson on 22nd March for the awards presentation. All finalists were described by the Institute as ‘meeting the high criteria for the award and... had excellent supporting references from their employers’.
Having worked for the group for nearly three years, Sam’s entry focused on his exceptional work ethic, volunteer work, ambition and drive, and enthusiasm and passion. He helped the group’s Talent Development Team determine the content of Shooting Stars, a programme which is aimed at employees who are considered to be future leaders, and was one of the first to take the course.
Sadly Sam was pipped to the post and didn’t win the award, but the group is very proud he made it to the finals. He said: “I was very humbled to be nominated and shortlisted for the CII Young Achievers Award, and despite not winning it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”
