We recently said goodbye to a long-serving employee of The Allendale Group, Andrew Brand, as he becomes our first retired employee. Andrew has been part of the team as our Machine-DRO Technical Product Specialist for 7 years and will be greatly missed by our team. Andrew was very well liked by all staff and customers alike, and his wealth of Engineering experience helped the Machine DRO range to become the success it is today.

Andrew’s retirement is our loss, but a well-deserved respite for him and we hope he enjoys his retirement, as well as some retirement gifts from the company. Andrew is planning to write a book and work on restoring a dolls house during in retirement – so we may well hear from him as a customer in the future!

As a business, we are always looking to develop our employees in all areas of the business. Recently, we have hired Beth who has become our first apprentice and has joined the Allendale Group as a Business Administrator Apprentice, as our Admin team continues to grow.  

Beth studied English, Art and Film Studies at A-level and was unsure on what career path to take once her A-levels were finished and believed that an apprenticeship was the best route to take when it comes to career development whilst earning money. As Beth hasn’t had much working experience apart from working full time at Wetherspoons, it was hard to find a job as many companies required you to have experience, whereas apprenticeships are a good platform for those without much experience. After applying through Hertfordshire Regional College, Beth found our apprenticeship position online and thought it would be the perfect fit for her and liked the idea of progressing through the admin department.

Being creative as well as many other skills, we believe Beth was the perfect candidate and we wish Beth all the best as she joins a friendly and ambition business. Welcome to the team, Beth!

We visited the B2B Marketing Expo at the Excel London which was a fantastic event to get lots of input from Marketing experts on how Marketing is transforming businesses and also the new upcoming trends in different industries in terms of Marketing Strategies.

We had some great conversations with businesses we may look to work within the near future on new software’s, as well as listening in on useful keynote speakers from influential businesses such as LinkedIn, IDM and Five CRM.
