Horses, Hospitality and Human League...
Astra Security colleagues Sarah and Michelle enjoy a great day out with Lucy from Lucy Bristow Appointments.
2019-09-17Astra Security colleagues Sarah Steer and Michelle Beet enjoyed an afternoon of high- quality entertainment last Saturday at Bath Racecourse, all courtesy of Lucy Bristow Appointments.
The day’s hospitality began with a delicious lunch in a private Executive Suite, whilst enjoying the thrill of the horse racing. There was the added bonus of a sunny September afternoon, before legendary 80’s band The Human League hit the stage to round off the day’s entertainment. The atmosphere was electric as the crowd joined in with the classic hits such as ‘Don’t you want me baby’….
Sarah, Office Manager at Astra said, ‘ It was such a great day, and a perfect opportunity to meet some of Lucy’s other clients in a relaxed and informal setting. It also gave me the chance to catch up with Lucy face to face. The suite was right on the finish line, so made for a thrilling afternoon, although I didn’t seem to back many winners!’
Lucy Bristow Appointments - helping to ease the recruitment process
Sarah went on to add ‘We have a good working relationship with Lucy and her team. They support our administration recruitment needs for our offices in Yate. Having a high calibre team of staff and retaining them is an important part of our business and whenever we’ve had support from Lucy Bristow Appointments, they’ve made the process for selection easier and more effective. They understand our needs and have always met our brief. They ‘get’ what we’re about. All in all, they help take the pain away from what can be a long and timely recruitment process.’
Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security added’ We don’t have a high turnover of staff and we greatly value the contribution our staff make to the business, so if Lucy and her team can recognise the qualities we need early on in the selection process, then that can help save time in the long run, but more importantly means we have ‘great people’ joining the Astra team.’
The hospitality event at Bath Racecourse also provided valuable networking opportunities for Astra and the other clients in attendance.
