My Team
My Team
The company are always looking to boost team interaction and have a dedicated social committee to help host a range of fun activities and team building events across each location. Alongside that, they hold company-wide quarterly meetings which give each department the opportunity to feedback their team’s news for the quarter. At this meeting, the company present awards such as iPads, weekend trips for 2 and £50 vouchers to what they call their ‘heroes of the month’.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
The company have a 50 day per year charity bucket and they encourage staff to use these days for charity related events. Employees need to apply directly with the charity committee to use some of the 50 days from the pot. Some have used days to work with homeless charities, to do fundraising activities or to spend time in local schools listening to children read. This financial year, in the company’s Manchester office, they are supporting Salford Foodbank with all funds raised going to this great cause. Currently there is people using their ‘Giving Something Back’ time to undertake shopping collections and deliveries, as well as packing food parcels for Foodbank visitors. The company have a great apprenticeship programme working with a local training college. They currently have 7 apprentices who they have high hopes of keeping on when they qualify. The company very much enjoy taking raw talented young people and seeing qualified professional men and women develop over the year.
