AN employee put J C Barbers forward for the Employer of the Year award in The Press Business Awards.

“I would like to put forward my two lovely bosses Jen and Colleen for this award category.

“I have worked at JC Barbers on Allerton Drive, Nether Poppleton, for nearly six months. Since then, I have received two cash bonuses and also a brand-new pair of clippers for my hard work.

“These two women are the kindest most honest bosses I have had in my 17 years of hairdressing. They are genuine, caring and helpful. They are also putting us staff on some advanced training courses in the near future.

“They have been in business for less than two years and already the business is booming. I am extremely proud to work for Jen and Colleen.”
