Last week Recipro celebrated it's first official birthday!  And what a year it has been.  This post looks at some of our highlights of last year.

I asked a few members of the Recipro team to give me a paragraph each about their highlights from our first year.

 Mike Close, Project Manager, wrote 'Having only joined 3 months ago, it has been an exciting time to join the team, there is so much going on and it is obvious how far Recipro has come even over the last few months, yet alone the year as a whole. It has been a quick learning process and I now feel very much part of the team that is ready to take Recipro to the next level. My high points without doubt have been spreading the message at the various road shows and trade shows; Eco build was a particular favourite. I look forward to continuing to help to develop and drive things forward over the coming year, there are some fantastic opportunities both in the UK and overseas, just not enough time in the day.'

Paul Jones, our Digital Marketing Assistant, 'I’ve been working for Recipro for roughly 7 months, it has been quite an experience, and some of my highlights of the past few months have been the trips to Birmingham and London. I also enjoyed watching the user numbers consistently grow thanks to the work of our marketing team and the early mornings at Huws Gray.  Looking back on my time here I have enjoyed working with everyone especially the users who continue to support us.'

Dannii Owens, Marketing Assistant says 'Having worked for Recipro before graduating last year I was really excited to be offered a position as Marketing Assistant.  Ten months later and I have experienced a great year with the company, particularly enjoying the opportunity to meet and speak to new people through user surveys, trade shows and our road show!  I know from personal experience that people asking to do a short survey can be time consuming and rather annoying but all of our users so far have been talkative, helpful and friendly.  I was also one of the lucky team members who got to attend EcoBuild this year, another brilliant experience with a variety of people to speak to and lots of interesting companies displaying their businesses.  The road show at Huws Gray yards was also great fun, who wouldn’t enjoy free sausage and egg butties three times a week?'

As for me, the highlights have been growing our small team of me, the MD and a couple of consultants to include Dannii, Paul, Mike, and the six new staff who have joined us this week from the future jobs fund.  It's also been great to receive recognition for what we are doing, through winning and being shortlisted for several prestigious awards, including the Green Apple Award, Construction News Quality Awards, Rushlight Awards and Wirral Investment Network Awards.  It has also been great to see our memberships rise dramatically, which they contimue to do!
