Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Steemies

We wish all our amazing candidates and clients a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year when it comes.

It’s the beginning of the last working week before Christmas for everyone here at Esteem. As we wrap up what has been an incredible 2019, we want to thank all our candidates and clients for their continued support and business over the last year.

This year has been full of excitement and surprises for us Steemies. We have had many new additions to the team and we’re hoping to keep expanding in 2020.  We’re looking to recruit new assessors and other supporting members of the team. If you, or anybody you know is interested in joining us, please click here.

Around 200 candidates have been through our programmes this year and we can’t wait to see if we beat that next year.

Last Friday was the Steemie Christmas night out. A night away from construction sites and workshops was welcomed by us all. We had a great day at the Tron Theatre panto ‘Cinderfella’ and the night continued at The Shandon Belles at the Buttery for dinner. It was truly a great celebration for all the hard work in 2019.

The Steemies (minus a few)

We shied away from the traditional Secret Santa this year and instead every member of the team donated £10 to the charity Cafe Walt at Open Gates. Open Gates is a local charity and café which supports prisoners and ex-offenders through employment and training. For Christmas, they are holding their annual Christmas dinner for the homeless. We hope our donations make even the slightest difference to someone’s Christmas this year.

See you all in 2020!!!
