What a year!

What a year!

What a 2017, our first full calendar year here at Advance. So, what have we been up to this year?

Well, firstly, we found our feet! We began the year having incorporated 9 months earlier in April of 2016. There was 6 of us, Myself, Mike Whitfield and a team of 4, all of us with some pretty ambitious plans. Focusing inwards, on our values, team and services we worked together to deliver an unequalled service with our values at the core!

With all this in place, we grew… rapidly! Seemingly every meeting being a huge success, we needed more space, we needed a bigger team. So, we moved! Possibly the biggest step for Advance at the time, we committed to our future and grew into our new space.

Now with a 13 strong stellar team with each and every one of us pulling in the same direction, I can’t wait to see what we achieve in 2018! But before we get too far ahead of ourselves I want to take this opportunity to mention a few notable positives throughout the year.

Starting with a personal high for myself, I GOT ENGAGED! So I need to start working a little harder to be able to afford the wedding.

Back to work, as mentioned above we moved office and doubled the size our team. Though not only have we doubled in team size, we have also more than doubled our number of clients!

We have implemented a number of benefits which hopefully goes someway to making Advance a great place to work, in addition to every team member being treated with the upmost respect and the mandatory work place pension we have introduced;

  • Team days/nights out
  • Work based incentives
  • Perkbox reward schemes
  • Free lunches
  • Charity events and contribution

I couldn’t possibly list each and every achievement for our entire team, I would need 2 pages of A4 (back to back) per person, suffice to say everyone is amazing at what they do and perform above and beyond each and every day.

To summarise, we’ve grown, we’ve moved… (I’m engaged) and we aren’t slowing down. We’re all very excited and can’t wait to see how we can build on this next year.

Happy 2018 and have a great seasonal break from everyone here at Advance.
