Visitors to the Newport office of cash plan provider Plutus Health might have noticed a friendly fresh face in recent months - new starter Nesta Young.

Nesta has joined Plutus three days per week to help with administrative tasks and customer service and brings a wealth of experience to the team.

Nesta came on board following the sad death of employee Andrea Ellaway last summer, and has been making a big difference in the office as colleagues adjust.

Nesta, who has always lived in the Newport area and recently moved to Cwmbran, started her career as an audio typist at Barclays Bank, where she worked for 27 years, progressing to the role of PA to the area corporate director. She then worked for two start-up companies as an office manager before joining Plutus Health at its Cardiff Road office.

Nesta said: “I have lots of experience and I’d like to bring commitment to the team, as well as a sense of support. I also hope to bring fun to the workplace, as I’ve a very warm sense of humour!

"I love spending time with and babysitting my grandchildren, a granddaughter who’s five and a grandson who has just turned two. I also enjoy going to church, as well as going on holiday and socialising at our local Constitution Club.”

Nesta has joined the staff at a busy time for Plutus, following a new partnership with the Guild of Photographers. Plutus Health, which has been helping south east Wales communities access healthcare for almost 200 years, offers health plans to individuals and families, as well as providing corporate packages to businesses in Newport, south Wales and across the UK.

Health plans provide a cost-effective alternative to private healthcare, help businesses reduce staff absenteeism and give money back for health screening and complementary therapies such as homeopathy.
