Carl Baker shares success for Nant in quarterly update
In the latest regular update, Nant managing director Carl Baker shares success for the water safety specialists:
The Nant team have worked through one of the most momentous periods in our recent history, which has seen us set up for future success.
The latest phase of our ambitious plans for growth were realised in August when we moved into brand new premises at the Wolverhampton Science Park.
The move to larger premises, with the connection to the University of Wolverhampton and its network, represents the next chapter in our journey and will enable us to fulfil our plans over the coming years.
Following an extensive review by people & culture manager Abbie Loveitt together with technical manager Andrew Edwards, we are pleased to relaunch an improved version of our training matrix.
This forms a vital strand of our people development framework and not only reflects essential people competencies to carry out their role, but identify skills required for progression as well as potential department resourcing requirements.
To support our people development plan, we have some exciting learning and development opportunities leading into the next quarter which we will share in future updates.
Recruitment remains high on our agenda, as the business grows so will the need for passionate, motivated people to join us and have the opportunity to build a career.
We held two successful recruitment events over the summer to promote a number of field based roles including water hygiene specialists and legionella plumbing specialists.
We welcomed Simon Love as client liaison officer, responsible for managing client needs and developing relationships to bring on new business. We welcome Simon to the team from the prison service and social enterprise Sponsored Breaks.
Our commitment to the community continues. At the start of the year we set ourselves a target to raise £2,000 for our charity of the year, Dementia UK.
Since our last update, Richard Deakin, Jamie Green, Chris Worthington and myself, completed the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon raising £1,255.
Technical director Richard Deakin and his wife Sharon faced their fear of heights by completing a 10,000ft tandem skydive. This leap of confidence raised £1,145 for Dementia UK, bringing the total raised so far this year to £2,712
I would like to thank all our colleagues, customers and partners for everything you have done to support our success so far in 2022. I look forward to providing further updates in the months ahead.
