As November draws to a close and the Christmas festive season starts to take hold, let’s take a look at what’s been happening in the exciting world of BCUK!
Firstly it was fantastic to be invited to the Building & Engineering awards by our clients. This event was attended by senior Consultants George Lucking and Kris Convery, who were suitably suited and booted! Was certainly a worthwhile event as George and Kris got the chance to network with other construction professionals and to see our clients winning well deserved awards! Hope there wasn’t too many sore heads the next day…
November has been an exciting month due to the fact that our new website has been officially launched, led by our Marketing Manager Jen Fisher- check it out at www.buildingcareersuk.com for info on us, events and plenty of job opportunities! Seeing our consultants take to social media and get down with the kids has been a definite highlight this month! Tweeting on a regular basis with news updated and market led information as well as new and available jobs! Make sure you are following us at @BCUKrecruitment and follow me @TamsinMarlowe!
As always at the end of the month at Building Careers we like to recognise individual performances within the business and all our successes of the past 4 weeks. Special mention this month goes to our regular top billers Natalie Baker and Kelly Fenna who achieved yet another £20k certificate. Our Employee of the Month award actually goes to our Accounts Team for November as we have gone through a period of change and updating with our back office systems, but our team our still coping with processing in excess of 300 timesheets and any problems that have arisen along the way! It’s been a tough 4 weeks and they have been strong and determined to make it work!
We have seen two of our staff go on maternity leave this month, Nicki and Danielle and soon to follow will be Natalie, and so we wish all our three mums to be good luck! We look forward to hearing the good news and to meet BCUK’s youngest recruits ever when they come in to visit the team!
Again our business is growing which is fantastic news. This month have welcomed on board Shannon Cooke who joins our Manchester team as a Trades and Labour Rescourer, Emma Chuong joins our Head Office in Skelmersdale specialising in Mechanical & Electrical Appointments and Joanne Bowe joins our expanding accounts team, welcome to you all.
We have an exciting December ahead, lots of planned regional fun days where we are meeting clients and candidates, open days and charity events, and make sure you don’t miss out as well as raffles with some fantastic prizes available! All in aid of Claires House Childrens Hospice, which is a great local cause to support and will be our official partner for 2016. Stay tuned to our updates across our website and social media for details of how you can be involved!
It’s going to be an extremely busy planning these fun days and most importantly our meeting candidates that will be looking for a new opportunities in the New Year and clients with requirements to source, and we can’t wait to get started! Our regional managers and directors will be going out to do service reviews, so if you would like to book a meeting with one our of senior team please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Head Office on 01695 556 800.
