September is proving to be a very exciting month so far! Last week, Louise and I travelled to Exeter as Louise had been shortlisted as Employee Of The Year for the Devon Venus Awards. We were both really excited and nervous as Louise had to be videoed for the shortlist …
They will then pick ten videos to go to the public vote on social media, so watch this space as we’d love your votes. This was filmed at Heart SW radio station who are one of the sponsors of the Venus awards.
We were then invited to attend an event in Exeter City Centre where the semi-finalists of the other categories were being announced. The first semi-finalists were announced for Small Business of the Year and we were delighted when our name was called out!
“It’s so exciting to be acknowledged for all our hard work!”
We are also delighted to announce our application for the Plymouth City Council ‘Support with Confidence’ scheme has now been approved, With both that and the Buy with Confidence approval, Extra Help Plymouth are leading the way for domestic help and cleaning in the South West.
We were thrilled to welcome Samantha Smith to our team here in Plymouth last month. Sam is doing an amazing job and has hit the ground running since training. Louise has been brilliant offering Sam all the support she needs along with settling into her new role as Franchisee Manager. Louise looks after all of our franchisees, providing them with ongoing support, help with marketing and generally assisting them to grow their business.
The franchise side of the business is also growing well. Emily Banks joined us in August and she is the franchisee for Newcastle. She’s already got clients up and running! Our next franchisee training is in October along with our AGM and our own awards dinner for existing franchisees. We shall keep you posted on this.
