Awards and Accolades
We don’t do it for the awards… but we’re proud of them all the same!
We’re proud to have received a number of awards over the years and, whilst we don’t do it for the glory, it’s always nice to get external recognition for the work of our dedicated and hard-working employees. We’re also delighted to have achieved external recognition for our work by being approved on a very high number of procurement frameworks and receiving certification across several ISO Management Standards.
