In the current challenging climate, it was uplifting and enlightening to meet the gifted people whose outstanding work was recognised at the recent Housing Excellence awards 2012. We were delighted to sponsor the after-show entertainment at this year’s event, which included a casino that raised much-needed funds for charity.
Staged at Lancashire County Cricket Club in Manchester, the awards were an impressive showcase of the rich seam of talent running through the social housing sector.
It was also worth reflecting that these committed individuals didn’t end up in key positions purely by good fortune. Specialist recruitment businesses such as Bromak continue to play a vital role in enabling housing organisations to find the very best people to drive their businesses forward.
Because we offer bespoke recruitment and training services and have a solid understanding of the housing sector, we were able to engage directly with a wide range of industry representatives at the event. As a result, we could discuss their concerns and aspirations in a way that further deepened our insight into the specific needs of the sector.
This is one of the reasons why we have had a record year, increasing our turnover to £9m – up by 30 per cent compared to last year.
We have sponsored a number of Housing Excellence events in the past and plan to continue doing so going forward. As well as giving us a valuable opportunity to network with both existing and potential clients it’s also great to be among so many of the housing sectors leaders, innovators and shining stars.
