So firstly I would like to thank you for your kind well wishes for my recent 1 year anniversary at The FieldBox…it came as a surprise that it had in fact been a year!
Sometimes it is hard to find even a moment to reflect but I have to say “make the time” as there is nothing more rewarding when you realise how far things have come in what could be percieved as a short space of time. So last week while sitting on the train I decided to make a list, well lets be honest it is not like you don’t get enough time to pontificate on a train journey in this day and age! To say the outcome wasn’t uplifting would be an understatement…
As a relatively young company there have been numerous hurdles to overcome but this has shown me how supportive people and companies can be, so for those of you that might feel the MR industry can be cutthroat… I say “no” as I have found you certainly reap what you sow and help, insight and well wishes have been abundant!
From new starters to a new location, from small qual studies to large car clinics – everyday has been a fun and amazing challenge! And who would have thought someone could get so excited at the likes of the installation of new phone software to support the recruitment team… yes the childlike joy was a delight.
Here was my list –
New offices: Moved from leafy Guildford to Croydon (yes Croydon the soon to be home of Westfield’s latest development along with Box Park)
New team: We have grown from 4 to 12 full time members of staff – in house project managers and a recruitment team
New clients: Along with being lucky enough to continue to work with some amazing existing clients we are getting contacted everyday by new contacts who are looking for something different in their fieldwork
Coming Soon: We are putting the finishing touches to our viewing studio so watch this space!!!
Finally I want to thank everyone for their support, from clients to shareholders… from staff that are not with the team anymore to those who have just joined! There are too many to name but you know who you are!
YEAR TWO HERE WE COME
