Hertford-based Cariad Marketing won the Best Marketing and Promotional Services Provider Award at last Friday’s biz4Biz Awards.
Undaunted by the Beast from the East’s best efforts, Cariad’s MD Justine Perry made it to Tewin Bury Farm Hotel: “Being able to collect the award made the journey in the snow worthwhile and I was excited to accept it on behalf of the team. We had a cracking year in 2017 and are on course to have an even better one in 2018. We have many happy long-term clients in Hertfordshire and our client-base is growing all the time. Having this kind of recognition from the business world is a huge boost for us.”
Cariad was also a finalist in the Best Apprenticeship category. Despite its small size, the company has taken on a total of four digital marketing apprentices and has been able to offer permanent full-time jobs to all of them at the end of their training. Justine sees apprenticeships not only as a valuable way of developing young people, but also benefits Cariad itself. “Our business plan is one of steady and sustainable growth and our five year plan has plenty of room for our apprentices to advance their careers and contribute to the company as it becomes even more successful.”
