UBCUK's Cirencester team won a top Customer Service Award and finished runner up in the Business of the Year category at the prestigious Cirencester Chamber of Commerce awards evening

Jenna Paynter, Customer Service Manager and Michelle Baum, Customer Service Assistant at UBC's Cirencester Business Centre, beat off stiff competition to scoop the top prize at the Chamber of Commerce's awards evening on May 10, 2019 at The Cornhall.

Now in its ninth year, The Chamber of Commerce Business Awards is open to all local enterprises, large or small, and offers a chance for the Cotswold business community to shine.

UBC's Cirencester team were delighted to take home the top award in the Customer Service category and finish runner-up for Business of the Year:

Writing for the Wilts & Glos Standard, Sam Krayem-Wood commented: "In a town that prides itself on friendliness and quality of service in all kinds of business, this was not an easy task!

"The Customer Service award winner offers high quality offices to rent in Cirencester on a business park, providing a co-working environment for all types of businesses from new start-ups to larger businesses. Nominations mentioned the excellent customer service provided by Jenna and Michelle, who always made them feel welcome and went out of their way to make sure they helped with any issues."

Jenna and Michelle work together at UBC Cirencester to deliver a high standard of customer service and to foster a supportive, inclusive environment that helps their clients' businesses thrive and grow. As part of their efforts, the team host regular business seminars, networking events, clinics, workshops and charity fundraising events, which are open to their own clients as well as business owners based within the local area.

As part of their fundraising efforts, UBC's Cirencester team played a pivotal role in raising over £4,000 for Guide Dogs UK last year and in 2019, Jenna and Michelle are leading UBC's nationwide campaign to support mental health charity, Mind, through an array of fundraising events. The team are active in the local community and support other local causes at every opportunity.

Heather Wrigley, National Operations Manager for UBCUK, commented: "Without a doubt, Jenna and Michelle's efforts have made UBC Cirencester the thriving and award-winning business community that it is today. Following the BCA award for Business Centre of the Year 2017 and now this, Jenna should be so proud of what she has achieved in Cirencester, the last seven months being with Michelle's efforts too.
