Another year has been and gone; 2014 was a year of the Commonwealth Games in Scotland, the release of the iWatch, the Scottish referendum, and who can forget – Flappy Bird being removed from the App store. So with that in mind, we thought it would be good to take a look back at what happened in the world of Stipendia in 2014.
Stipendia began 2014 with a smaller team, and the year saw us employ a staggering five new members of staff. Our administrator, Catherine, followed by Jack, our Marketing Intern, who has been working on marketing the company to prospective clients. Jack also graduated shortly before starting here with a first-class BA(Hons) degree in Marketing from the University of Hull.
May 2014 saw huge personal ambitions from two of our directors, Lynne and Jonathan, running the Beverley 10k for Dove House Hospice. The pair collectively raised approximately £500 for the charity. But our donations did not stop there.
This Christmas we supported the CashForKids Mission Christmas campaign, donating lots of toys for the charity supporting disabled and disadvantaged children. The campaign collectively helped over 15,000 children in the Yorkshire region.
We were happy for our administrator Catherine who got married in June, now Mrs Ventress. Similarly, we’d like to extend our congratulations to our one of our directors, Jonathan, who recently got engaged.
2014 was jam packed with lots of changes with the company and we’re very excited for 2015. We are currently looking into redesigning our website and hoping for much more with our online marketing. We hope each of our clients, friends, and followers have a great year and wish you all the best.
