A Round up of 2020 at Convolo

With this year coming to an end and 2021 just around the corner, we have taken some time out to reflect on what we have achieved over the last few months and to say a massive thank you to everyone we have worked with. Here are some of our highlights:

Relaunch and results

Relaunch and results

While relaunching Convolo Personnel during a pandemic was a risk, we are so pleased to be able to say that it has been worth it. Despite everything going on this year, we have generated results that we’re really proud of, and all of the services we offer (HR support, career coaching, and recruitment) have generated business over the past few months.
The economy has been estimated to grow by 6% over January, February and March so the job market is set to pick up again really soon, and there are some wonderful businesses flourishing in Oxfordshire who will continue to do so. We believe that the future for the business community here is very promising and will lead to many wonderful opportunities for the residents here.
Working with charities

Working with charities

We are proud to have continued to work with both Pancreatic Cancer UK and Helen and Douglas House, donating £50 to both charities for every recruitment fee paid to us. This is something we are really passionate about, and it makes us so happy that we can support these charities with our work.
We also organised the Purple Lights event in Witney this year, where The Corn Exchange was lit with purple lights to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer. We are continuing to work on more fundraising ideas for early 2021.
What we’ve been up to

What we’ve been up to

We’ve had some great success on social media and our following on Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook has increased. We’ve also had some lovely feedback on our ‘lockdown 2 diary’ campaign on Instagram giving hints, tips, and a daily dose of positivity. Also this year, we sponsored the West Oxfordshire Business Awards, which we hope to continue supporting in the future.
Congratulations again to Cotswold Fudge Co who were the winners of the SME category. We also worked very hard on creating a free sample Covid resource pack which focussed on employee engagement while working from home, as we wanted to create something that businesses could use to help their staff during the pandemic.
Future plans

Future plans

We are looking forward to partnering with new clients in 2021, as well as strengthening the relationships that we have with our current clients in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. If all goes well, we will be looking at securing office space by March, and have plans to hire our first recruit (so watch this space!).
Ruth, our HR and Recruitment specialist, will also be helping students at Carterton Community College with CV writing and mock interviews in January.
Convolo friends

And finally, we would like to say a huge thank you to friends of Convolo who have helped us behind the scenes: Josie, Rachael, Alex, Sarah, Paul, Christina and the guys at Beyond Your Brand, Krayma Technical Solutions and Print Ready. We couldn’t have done it without you all.

Here’s to 2021, let’s make it a great one!
