Life at Signature Bristol

Get to know the Bristol team a bit better with some behind-the-scenes insights into out work life.

Highlights from the Bristol office and what the team has been up to lately.

March 2024

EDI Event with Babbasa

Bridging the Gap: EDI Training on Inclusive Leadership 

Our clients were invited to join us at St. George’s for another morning of intelligent discussion hosted by Babbasa, an outstanding Bristol-based specialist in developing attractive and fair work environments using inclusion training and strategic support.

The session delved into being an inclusive leader and if this topic interests you, there is a detailed account live on our blog and coverage of other events in this years series.

Bristol WORKS

Victoria and Imogen volunteered their time to go into a Bristol-based school, in partnership with BristolWORKS!, to speak to kids about a career in recruitment.

One of our values at Signature is Growth, and it’s an honour to be able to champion this not only internally, but within the wider community and help kids development.

Bristol WORKS
International Women’s Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day this year we had a catch up over some tea and cake in the office.

It is crucial to take some time away from the desk and check in on those around you, laugh and feel good.

We also shared a blog highlighting Sharon and Eve’s journey as Signatures female founders.

Great Big Breakfast

Throughout February, our chosen charity Magic Breakfast ran Great Big Breakfast, a fundraising campaign encouraging communities, companies and families to come together, enjoy a meal together and support a wonderful cause.

The team chose to make healthy and sustainable smoothies and each donated to a worthy cause.

February 2024

Crisp Professional Development Event

Leading and Letting Go, our first client event of 2024, in partnership with Crisp was a great success.

With clients coming together from various industries for a morning of insightful discussion and mentoring from Shaun Durham.

Not forgetting the delicious pastries and refreshments.

Pancake Day

The team got stuck in early creating their own masterpieces that hopefully tasted as good as they looked! 

Shrove Tuesday is seen as the last day of merriment and excess before giving something up for Lent.

Signature Recruitment Bristol
Valentine’s Day

It’s tradition in the office is to treat each other with little acts of kindness for Valentine’s Day.

Each member of the team wrote their treat idea for a colleague on a post-it note, then we all chose one randomly. Kindness acts this year include: 

  1. Baking homemade cookies, brownies and focaccia.  
  2. A coffee date. 
  3. A one hour lie in. 
  4. Plants. 
  5. Personalised artwork.

Small acts of kindness can make the workplace happier for everyone.

Reaching New Highs

Congratulations to our Accounts Coordinator Felicity for making her first placement from start to finish!

In her first few months, Felicity has gone from strength to strength and we celebrated her achievements with a selection of beers to celebrate.

Bristol WORKS 

Victoria and Amelia presented a workshop to Oasis Academy Brightstowe Year 10s, offering advice on pursuing a career in recruitment as well as practical tips for how to create an effective CV. 

The workshop concluded with a question and answer section, with one student saying “I feel more confident in finding a job now that I know about CVs.” 

Thank you to Bristol Works and Oasis Academy Brightstowe for having us and we look forward to volunteering again soon.

New Starter Connie

Working as a freelance designer and marketing specialist Connie is plunging herself into a new challenge joining the team as a Marketing Assistant, she will be managing and creating content for our social media and blog. Previously working in recruitment herself, she will be rolling out insightful campaigns and articles.

The brand has her visiting lots of Bristol venues snapping pics and meeting with local artists. Before starting her career in Marketing she worked as a pizza chef… mastering the art of dough tossing!

January 2024

Team Trampoline Day

We started off the New Year at Axis Trampoline Club to bounce away the January Blues.

We all had such a fun time and it really helped raise everyone’s spirits, plus it’s a great team building exercise. 

Life at Signature Bristol
Cyber Escape Room

The team took part in an interactive Cyber Escape Room to stay on top of digital safety.

Avon & Somerset Cyber Protection Officers helped them all learn top-notch cybersecurity tips while challenging their investigative and problem-solving skills. 

Not only are we now better armed with the knowledge to safeguard our data, but we also had fun working together as a team. 

Lunch in the Office

Although some of the team make their own lunch and even occasionally bring in healthy meals for the rest of the office, we are very lucky to be surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the city centre.

December 2023

Christmas Jumper Day & Helping Bristol’s Homeless

The team got together to help Bristol’s homeless population ahead of Christmas with the Rucksack and Shoebox appeal for 2023. 

They all donated toiletries, food items, scarves, hats, socks, sleeping bags and more to support to this important cause and we were very pleased to have nine full shoeboxes and three rucksacks all wrapped up, which the charity will now be able to hand out to people on the street. If you’d like to contribute.
