Celebrating International Women's Day 2021 - Fiona

To celebrate International Women's Day, we asked some of the fantastic women in the QANW team to tell what they #ChooseToChallenge this #IWD2021

Fiona Ross - Group Head of Finance

How many years have you worked at QANW?

12 years

How do you help contractors/members?

The role of Finance is behind the scenes to an extent, but we are here making sure that all the right financial information is available for QANW to continue making daily decisions that are in alignment with longer term strategic goals that enables us to service the policyholders and continue to meet the needs of our members and contractors. For example, this includes working with and supporting various areas across the business to develop and create new products or adapt and change existing products ensuring that we can continue to meet the requirements of our members and contractors.

What are you choosing to challenge this International Women’s Day:

I choose to support women in the workplace and encourage women to be supportive of other women

Out of work hobbies:

The last year has been a bit out of the ordinary but most weekends you’ll find me down on the beach with my two little girls and our dog, in rain, hail or shine. I’ve also been trying to up my running miles!

Favourite thing about working at QANW:

First and foremost it’s a fantastic team to work with. I know that’s a cliché but it couldn’t be more true. I’m missing seeing lots of faces around the office at the moment so hope to be back there soon, when it is safe to do so. In the spirit of IWD, I would note that there are lots of wonderful women that work at QANW and it’s an environment where women are championed. I’m also extremely proud of the products that we offer and the protection that they offer to the policyholders.
