Meet the team:
Hello, my name is Helen Hardwick and I am the Staff Benefits Manager. I am based at York Hospital and have worked in the Staff Benefits Team since 2012.
My favourite event is without doubt the Summer Fairs. I love being able to see so many staff face to face and it’s so much fun even if the weather is not always on our side!
The thing I love most about my job is our staff - working to try and make their days a little easier whether its offering a subsidised massage or negotiating a restaurant discount to help the pennies go further.
Hello, my name is Laura Streets and I am a Staff Benefits Coordinator. I am based at Scarborough Hospital and have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for over 8 years.
My favourite project is the Staff Benefits Desk Calendar. I love the creativity it brings in deciding on a theme and matching design. Every year we get some fantastic entries from staff across the Trust and I love to see the variety of pictures and how each colleague has interpreted the brief.
The thing I love most about my job is getting to tell people when they’ve won the staff lottery, or a competition, or a raffle prize. Fortunately I get to deliver good news on a regular basis and I love to see how excited people get when they find out they’ve won something!
Hello, my name is Annabel Newey and I am a Staff Benefits Coordinator. I am based at York Hospital and I have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for over 6 years.
My favourite event was planning and overseeing the 18th Birthday Party for the York Staff Shop. It was a fabulous day filled with fun games, freebies, goodie bags and yummy cake –which our staff absolutely loved! It was great to see people smiling and having a brilliant time.
The thing I love most about my job is communicating all our fabulous offers and discounts to our staff via our newsletters/ social media and website. I always get so excited for our staff when we have an amazing new offer to advertise and I love seeing how excited staff get when they see it.
Hello, my name is Laura Monkman and I am the Staff Shops Manager. I am based at Scarborough Hospital and I have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for over 10 years.
My favourite event is the summer fairs and Christmas market. It is such a fun time out for Staff whether it’s for a 5 minute break or on their lunch time. They can meet the companies we work with and it’s always nice for them to walk away with a freebie.
The thing I love most about my job is seeing people’s reactions when we get discounted tickets in the shop. We also sell a variety of seasonal stock which saves them going into town – making life that little bit easier.
In the shop we make time to listen to everyone, even if it’s to tell us how happy they are or requests for certain products. We’re always here to offer a listening ear and a safe space to offer a bit of respite when work feels overwhelming.
Hello my name is Vanessa Nicholson and I am the Staff Benefits Administration Assistant. I am based at York Hospital and have recently joined the Staff Benefits Team in 2023.
During my first few months in post, I am most looking forward to helping plan the Summer Fairs and learning all about the Staff Benefits we offer such as the Staff Lottery and how it works.
I am also looking forward to getting to know the team and meeting everyone at the various events Staff Benefits will be attending this year!
