Business of the Year 2018

Wow, oh what a night!

We are nearly one year old; the year has been good, there have been a few bumps in the road however what do you expect with a new startup with the expectations of growth, doing things correctly and a varied customer base.

In January I received an email to say I was a finalist in the above category of the Women's Awards 2018 North.  Is this a spam I thought?  Only because I thought it was a little early to start receiving nominations for awards, we still have loads to do! 
I can tell you it was a great night, with an amazing group of talented individuals who had incredible stories to tell.  When our category came on the board, I will admit a little nervous but the first thing I thought of was should I have gone for a curly blow dry?  Then I said to myself, no, there was other stuff to do in the office on a Monday afternoon, and no-one would see your curly blow dry, we are not going to win.  Well just as quick as the thought of my hair attire had gone through my mind our company name was on the big screen.

The pride I felt walking from the back of the room, on table 18/18 was incredible.  I can't even remember what music was playing at the time.  A beautiful trophy awaited me on the stage.  Hesketh James - What do you do? We work in recruitment consultancy, within hospitality, accountancy and engineering.  Plus we offer HR services to SME's as a business partner.   But we also do other stuff like employability in schools, including special schools (did you know only 16% of Adults with Autism are in full-time work), organising work experience and deliver training modules to Springboard & CITB, the hospitality & construction charities.

I would just like to thank everyone that I work alongside, our candidates & clients who have made it possible.  I've enjoyed this year, and I am looking forward to a week in the sun shortly over the school holidays and then back to it.

We can only do it together  

Thank you, Amanda x
