On Friday 15th January, the Cooper Lomaz staff were transported to a galaxy far, far away….or, more accurately, The Assembly House in Norwich. It was the night of our annual Internal Recruitment Awards, where we celebrate the achievement of our staff over the past year with a spectacular black tie event.

Our theme was the movie that everyone’s talking about: Star Wars. Alongside a delicious three course meal, the Cooper Lomaz team enjoyed the entertainment of Norwich Star Wars Club. Our staff received awards ranging from Contract Champion to Best Newcomer, all whilst in the presence of Storm Troopers and Chewbacca!

Our Operations Director Mark Fletcher said, ‘It was a great night, and it’s wonderful to see our staff receiving recognition for all the hard work they put in. Everyone had a really good time and really loved the Star Wars theme.’
