Billingham branch manager Charlotte Sigsworth has been shortlisted for the Making a Difference in the Community award.

All three will attend the awards at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Newcastle on November 29.

Meanwhile, Hays Travel’s Ringwood branch manager Rose Price (pictured) has been shortlisted for the Investors in People Community Employee of the Year award. She is one of five nominated for the award.
