I hope you have had a good 2019 so far.
2019 has been a busy one for Prima Uno with targeting new markets outside of Cumbria and working on some large tenders to enable our growth. The target has been to grow in new sectors, and we have been non-stop working on multi-sector tenders since January which has been very intense.
We have had new employees join us and engaged with new clients such as NNL, INS and the NDA.
The start of the Summer saw us being successful in securing a place on the Decommissioning Framework at Dounreay with our long-term clients AECOM, NIS, NSG and MW Hargreaves and forging new relationships on this framework with ARC, Westinghouse, Squibb, and Morson Projects.
We have also entered into new contracts with new clients such as NNL (National Nuclear Laboratory), International Nuclear Services (INS) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) (under the INS contract) and we have been continuing our long-term relationships with our clients.
We have recently secured a high-profile and exciting contract at BAE with a new client, the details of this will be revealed in a new press release in September.
We are delighted to be taking on one of our apprentices Lydia Drummond who has become a key member of our team. Her willingness to apply herself to every aspect of our work here at Prima Uno led us to put her forward for Apprentice of the Year 2019. Even though she wasn’t shortlisted she is still our champion!
We have also have Chloe Blinco with us for 6 months as part of the NDA Apprenticeship scheme. She has been with us since March and had become a valued member of our team and we will be sorry to see her go but wish her well in her chosen career as Health and Safety Advisor at Kinetic Energy Ltd.
Autumn will see us looking for new staff in areas such as Business Development, Office Manager, Bid Manager, Lab Technician, Proof-readers and Dashboard experts. Please click on the link for the Office Manager position we currently have available.
It has been a pleasure working with the team at Carlisle Airport. Stobart’s have been great to work with. As with all our clients we have a wonderful relationship which is based on trust and professionalism.
We are preparing for big changes next year with the new IR35 regulations coming into force. We will be holding a workshop for all of our limited company owner associates which will be open to other people potentially affected by IR35.
Anyone interested in joining our award winning team please get in touch.
Enjoy the rest of your Summer and I will hopefully see you soon.
We have a big announcement to make in a couple of weeks so please watch this space.
