Colchester – 6 months old today!

Think back to March, the country was in the throes of dealing with one of the biggest storms to hit the UK for a generation. The Beast from the East, as it was known, decided to hit at the moment Cooper Lomaz Recruitment had planned to open our third office in Colchester. The office was kitted out, the champagne was on ice, local businesses had been contacted and the staff had been hired. The Beast however was doing it all could to slow our launch.

We are very proud at Cooper Lomaz however, that it will take more than heavy snow, hail, rain, wind, road closures and the suspension of East Anglia’s rail service to stop us from achieving our ambitions. As if the biggest storm in a generation was not enough, we also faced the incompetent delivery of a key piece of I.T infrastructure from a company I am sure you have heard of. Our new staff however were fantastic and proved their quality in those early days; travelling between offices, working from home and showing the resilience which every recruiter needs to succeed.

It seems ironic now that we celebrate 6 months of the Colchester office following another freak of weather in the long, hot summer we’ve been enjoying. The snow certainly seems a long time ago now.

In the past 6 months we have established our team in Colchester, developed some great relationships with local companies and job seekers and importantly, delivered successfully in the areas we wanted to focus on. Our strength is still very much our Engineering presence, however increasing opportunities in other areas means that diversification and further growth won’t be far away.

Colchester now firmly feels part of the Cooper Lomaz family, and by consistently hitting targets, it’s time to reward the team and celebrate their achievements so far.

On 14th September, the team will be celebrating in style with what has been dubbed ‘MeatFest Friday’ as they are treated to lunch at Bodicea in Colchester, followed by a night on the town to say thank you for their fantastic work so far. A reward picked by the team, for the team, which shows how close they have become.

We have thoroughly enjoyed the last 6 Months, and are excited about the plans for the future.

If you would like to be part of an office that has ambitious plans to grow, and celebrates in style then get in touch with Michael Meyer of Cooper Lomaz on 01603766760.
