Northumbria Business Student wins Public Trust Award

29th June 2021

Tutors at Northumbria University's Newcastle Business School were delighted that one of their students has won a national award for Public Trust.  

Clare Talbot-Jones, a Part-Time Master’s degree student in Strategic Leadership has won the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Building Public Trust in Insurance Award.  It recognises the work of Clare and her team at Talbot Jones Ltd in providing the highest levels of customer service, added value and investment in professional skills and knowledge development. 

At the same time Clare undertakes numerous volunteer roles including supporting women to financial freedom at the Newcastle based Millin Charity, mentoring through Northern Power Futures, giving careers guidance to young people at Founders4Schools and being Centre Manager at the Christians Against Poverty Life Skills Centre at Holy Trinity Church, Gateshead.  She is in excellent company as previous award winners include Money Saving expert Martin Lewis.

Talbot Jones is one of just three chartered Insurance brokerages headquartered in the North East.  Their dynamic and innovative team of six have been working hard in response to Covid this year, advocating for over £1m worth of business interruption claims whilst also completing several professional awards.

Commenting on the award Clare said: “I’m utterly thrilled. Much of my university work has been centred around building public trust in the insurance industry. Receiving this award is a massive encouragement that our business is already playing an important part in that. This recognition from our professional body bears testament that you don’t have to have big budgets or long-established traditions to make a positive impact.”

Professor Ron Beadle, who leads the University’s Responsible Business research added: “This award is a tribute to Clare and her excellent North East Business.  Her tutors are delighted to hear of this award which demonstrates once again that Responsible Business is good business in every sense.”
