It hardly seems possible that 5 years ago this week, Novo UK was officially born. Ok, the business was registered a little earlier in the Summer of 2011, but it was the first week of September that year when our 3 Directors walked in to an office not much bigger than our current meeting room, armed with nothing more than laptops, phones and some serious finger crossing.
However, whilst the construction market was still crawling out of the depths of recession, we were confident enough in our knowledge, work ethic, experience and relationships in the industry to be able to survive the first potentially treacherous 12 months, certain that if we could make it work during these difficult times we could thrive moving forwards.
Thankfully after some difficult early days, this proved to be the case.
The past 5 years have seen the business change and grow with the market, but our ethos, commitment and dedication to providing exceptional customer service to our clients and candidates and a free thinking, motivating and dynamic work environment for our employees remains constant.
On behalf of Paul, Darren and I, we would like to thank all of our clients who have kindly trusted us with their business over the past 5 years, the many candidates we have worked with and continue to work with and most importantly all of our members of staff, past and present, who have contributed to making Novo UK the company it is today – culminating in being awarded Employer of the Year at the Hertfordshire Business Awards 2015. Without the great people we employ, the business simply wouldn’t exist.
So here is to the next 5 years and the many exciting developments and challenges they will surely bring.
