September 2021 marks the beginning of an exciting time for Senate Group, a Liverpool based Mechanical and Electrical company. With fresh investment in their people and the launch of their new offices will see Senate enter their busiest phase of the year ahead of the competition.
Following a company restructure which sees Kiera Vogel take up the position of Managing Director from September 2021 and will see Colin Crosby retiring as a director from the business in 2023. Investment in the training and development of Senate’s workforce and the establishment of new offices are top priorities for the companies new MD.
Kiera comments: “September marks an important phase for the business, which will see our entire workforce go through additional training and development which is above and beyond the needs of the business. We all know how important mental health first aid, enhanced health and safety and ED&I is, our team will be benefitting from much more than their required standard training and in many circumstances, we are leading the way within the sector.”
Senate has recently been shortlisted as Best Employer at the LGBTQ+ business awards, which sees them pitched head-to-head against business heavy weights such as Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the University of Manchester, with the winners due to be announced in late October.
Their ESG strategy doesn’t stop there either, with the team at Senate recently launching its own ‘Giving Back’ campaign aimed at helping the city’s charitable organisations, social enterprises and food banks flourish.
Working alongside organisation in the communities in which they work, Kiera and the team have already given back over £10,000, as well as supporting organisations such as Thrive, who offer a dedicated space for support workers and care-experienced young people to meet, situated in the heart of Liverpool City Centre.
Senate’s ‘We’re Giving Back’ campaign isn’t just aimed at giving monetary donations, it is also offering additional support and guidance to many of the young people in the form of mentoring and apprenticeships – with the first of many joining the business earlier this year.
Kiera continues: ““We want to be able to ‘Give Back’ to those communities in which we work. As we enter a key phase for the business it is pleasing to see how busy our project pipeline continues to be, following the 2020 everyone has had. The work we have been involved with in the communities in which we work”
