Brightwork celebrates a decade of success
Brightwork is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
Ten years ago this month (September), Brightwork was a new business, feeling its way in the intensely competitive world of recruitment.
The story of how the Glasgow- and Edinburgh-based company took off from a standing start will be celebrated on Friday 9th September at a glittering party in the nautical surroundings of the Tall Ship on the River Clyde.
It will be a night to remember for all 70 staff - up from just 14 in 2006 - as well as clients, core partners, suppliers and the extended Brightwork family.
It will also be a night of special poignancy for founders Charles Turner and Anthony Knight, as well as nine long-serving staff who have been with the company since its inception.
They are: Brian Cairney, Alison French, Wen Figures, Linda Skene, Graeme Strachan, Karen Bathie, Kim Hill, Heather Hughes and Andrea Verral
Derek May, chief executive of Brightwork, said, "We will be getting together on the Tall Ship to mark a real Scottish success story, a tale of determination, courage and self-belief which has created a truly remarkable company.
"It is not stretching it too far to say that Brightwork has tangibly changed people's lives for the better, both through finding meaningful work for countless thousands and also from the dedicated voluntary and charitable activities of its fantastic staff."
The company was born out of an MBO by Charles Turner and Anthony Knight which transformed the old industrial division of Hudson into a full-service, cross-sector agency which now supplies thousands of workers a week to blue chips and SMEs.
