SSAIB Raise Funds for Macmillan Cancer Support During Recent Coffee Morning

SSAIB Raise Funds for Macmillan Cancer Support During Recent Coffee Morning

SSAIB are delighted to confirm that a recent coffee morning at the SSAIB office has helped to raise £100 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Hosted earlier this month - as a late edition of the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising events held worldwide – the morning saw SSAIB staff bring in a selection of cakes and savory food, which they then contributed monetary donations to enjoy.

A baby picture competition – which consisted of SSAIB employees pay for the privilege of guessing which of their co-workers were which from the numbered selections - also saw bookings team leader Michelle Robinson emerge victorious, to claim the prize of a bottle of wine that had also been donated. Finally, a raffle was also held to win a bottle of Prosecco and a collection of various sweets and chocolates.

After Douglas Macmillan founded the charity in 1911, Macmillan have grown to be the UK’s leading source of cancer support, helping more and more people living with cancer thanks to the support they receive from donations.

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fundraising event – as, each year, people in the UK and worldwide host their own coffee morning. The donations received go towards Macmillan services and, in 2016 alone, World's Biggest Coffee Morning raised £29.5 million.

SSAIB Success Sees Leading Fire and Security Certification Body Increase Auditor Numbers

With the recent success enjoyed by SSAIB in their 25th year already seeing the creation of a Management Systems scheme manager role, the leading certification body for the fire and security industries have taken the decision to also add to their auditing team with two new vacant positions.

The two full-time fire alarm and security system regional auditor roles - based in the South West of England and the Home Counties – are ideal for any applicants that possess previous experience in the design, installation and maintenance of fire alarm systems and have a keen eye for detail, while some knowledge of electronic security systems is also desirable.

Working flexible hours with the opportunity to travel as well, the successful applicants will receive a salary commensurate with the role and a company car.

Full details for both roles can be found in our Employment Opportunities section, while anyone looking to apply should forward their CV and a cover letter to Karen Rowley (karen@ssaib.co.uk.)

SSAIB also welcome applications from anyone interested in working as a regional auditor elsewhere in the UK and Ireland as well. Please use the same contact details listed above and include which area(s) you would be able to cover.

Finally, our much-travelled sales and marketing manager will make the journey to EventCity in Manchester for Fire Safety North, which begins on Tuesday October 9 at 9am.
