On the 21st February, Maria our Office Manager went to Mercury Training who are our training providers in Birmingham, to celebrate the learners graduation! The learners have completed and passed their 5 week security course and all are now able to apply for their SIA badge to start their new and exciting careers in security! West Midlands Combined Authority and Job Centre Plus were also in attendance on the day. It was great to watch each of the learners collect their certificates and celebrate their success. Some of them have already secured jobs at MAN Commercial, we are looking forward to having them on board!
We held a presentation for our long-serving continuous employees on the 28th February, there were 5 employees in total. Darren Hodges, Ian Smith, Darren Bray, Mark Houlihan and Steve Tysall. Our Quality Director, Chris Smith has also been with us over 20 years. It was a great morning with the guys, chatting and reminising about the old times over breakfast butties and a cuppa! We wanted to show our appreciation for their hard work, dedication and loyalty over the years, and hopefully we all work together for many more years to come! All the long-serving employees were awarded with a certificate and a bottle of champagne.
