Welcome to the Team Maria & Chyna

Welcome to the Team Maria & Chyna, the newest members of the Penny Post Team. Maria Gray joined our Marketing Team in December whilst Chyna Lindsay joined in January as our newest Customer Service Apprentice. We’ve asked them both about how they are finding it so far, what attracted them to their roles and what they are hoping to achieve in their new positions! 

Maria

“It’s been an exciting and amazing challenge, joining the marketing team! I’ve learnt so much in such a short period time, and every day I’m doing something new, learning more about Penny Post and our members, and improving my skills.

I was attracted to Penny Post because I love being creative, helping people and sharing great stories across social media. I’ve never worked in the finance sector before, but I need not have worried. Credit unions do an amazing job, are so different to other finance companies, and the more I learn, the more I realise how lucky we are to work in the sector.

I’ve already started to achieve my goals of becoming a better version of myself and I’m saving with Penny Post to help fund my hobbies! I’m a life-long classic car enthusiast and can’t wait to take my Rover 25 to classic cars shows this year after the pandemic put many on hold. I’m also doing a 24-hour charity road run in June with a group of friends, so I’m saving for that too.

Joining Penny Post has been an amazing start to 2022 and I can’t wait to see what the year has planned!”

Chyna

“My first few weeks have been really good. It’s been a nice challenge and I’m more than happy to take it on. Remembering all the information is tricky but it’s been fun so far.

I wanted to do something exciting, and I was attracted to Penny Post because from their website I could see they invest in young people. It’s great to know that they believe in us.

I feel really supported and that makes me want to succeed and make the company proud of me. With my role I want to become a more well-rounded person and develop my skills. Being so young, I’m excited to do everything and I’m looking forward to serving members, learning about the credit union sector and developing my skills.”

We wish both Maria and Chyna the very best with their Penny Post careers, and members, feel free to say ‘hello’ to our newest team members when you call in!
