NOVUS AWARDS 70 INTERNAL PROMOTIONS THROUGHOUT 2022

Internal colleague development is a key part of our company values, and we focus on nurturing our employees to develop and maximise their personal and professional potential. It is because of this, last year 70 employees received promotions and 8898 training courses were delivered to 1066 colleagues.

Our nurturing of colleagues is best seen in the way we develop our people to be  prepared when job opportunities become available. We are then able to award promotions into more senior roles to support personal development and ensure we can reach our ambitious growth targets.

The continued focus on promoting our colleagues into new roles shows our commitment to growing our own talent and  providing opportunities to people when their developed skillset puts them in a position to move to the next stage of their career.

At the start of this year, we announced four promotions to our recently created D1 director level. This new level sits between our Senior Leadership Team and our Executive Board and is an important step for our business in our journey to 2026. We’re pleased to announce the following employees have been promoted to D1 Level:

Claire Bailey-Jones: Business Development and Marketing Director

Claire continues to lead the Business Development team, including the bid centre and newly the Marketing team. Claire joined us in May 2021 from Wates and has been vital in our business growth strategy, building a dedicated team, sustainable pipeline of future work and spearheading the Centre of Excellence for our Sustain brand. She will continue to ensure we stay relevant and continue growing in a changing marketplace.
