For many, October means that autumn is well and truly here; the clocks go back, the once-green leaves turn to shades of burnt orange, and pumpkin-spice everything takes over the coffee shops.
But for us, October means celebrating as it’s our 4th birthday!!
Since our launch in 2015, our 3 Founders have grown the business from a small, local IT recruitment agency, to a flourishing boutique recruitment consultancy covering all aspects of IT, Digital and Engineering across East Anglia, Thames Valley, and London.
We’ve also grown our teams to over 30 members of staff in total across our 2 offices in Norwich and Reading and launched NXTGEN, our sister agency specialising in recruiting for the accountancy and finance markets across East Anglia.
The past 12 months have been hugely successful for us as a business after being listed as one of the region’s “ones to watch” as part of Future50 2019, and we became ambassadors for the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor which aims to bring together businesses, academics, and political leaders to assist in the growth of the local economy.
We’ve had a bigger focus on our Corporate Social Responsibility by collaborating with the University Technical Colleges of Norfolk and Reading and establishing our first-ever charity partnership with Make-A-Wish UK.
The teams themselves have continued to excel and throughout 2019 each quarter has broken the record of the previous! We’ve been to Dubai and Ibiza on our incentives and are currently working towards our winter trip to Gothenburg, as well as having introduced additional incentives on a monthly and quarterly basis.
Leigh Howard, one of the Directors and Founders of TEC Partners says: “In the space of 4 years, we still can’t believe how much we, as a business, have been able to achieve.
“We’re now moving into our fifth year with exciting plans to continue growing the teams and expanding the business further.
“All our clients and candidates have been incredible, and we’d like to thank them for all their support over the past 4 years and we look forward to continuing to build on our relationships. We’d also like to thank our phenomenal teams who have played the most pivotal roles in our success. We really couldn’t wish to work alongside a better group, they’ve made the journey great fun, and we’re delighted to see more and more of the team breaking records of their own.”
Here’s a quick look at some of the moments over the past 12 months:
