The Enable Christmas Party: creating fond memories for all of our employees

Filed as CareersPosted January 24

On Saturday 8th December 2018, Enable employees and their partners celebrated another year of success and innovation at the RSC’s The Other Place for our annual Christmas Party!

Christmas parties have become increasingly popular for companies over the years, with the huge appeal giving employees the opportunity to bond and help people from other departments get to know each other a lot better. These types of get-togethers are also an excellent chance to give our exceptionally loyal and motivated employees recognition for the hard work that they are doing and rewarding them for it. Retention is something that Enable prides itself on as we expect to grow to over 100 employees by 2020.

Over the past 18 years, Enable has forged strong relationships with some of the finest universities, bringing in the brightest students that they have to offer — with 79% of our analysts and developers graduating from one of the top 25 featured in the Times 2019 UK rankings! We regularly hold recruitment events and have formed close ties to the University of Warwick and the University of Birmingham. This gives us the opportunity to engage and network with students, whist giving them a real insight into our company.

We are particularly focused on recruiting on high achievers in numerate subjects, with 66% of our employees holding an undergraduate degree in either Maths or Science, and 41% attaining a master’s or PhD in their chosen field of study. This provides us with exceptional employees who not only possess outstanding technical skills, but also the ability to translate that knowledge into highly effective business solutions.

Chris graduated from the University of Gloucestershire with a degree in Popular Music before joining Enable as a Client Services Manager. A Client Services Manager focuses on the delivery of software projects to Enable’s clients and works to support both test and live applications. Rather than passing this responsibility to third-parties, Enable provides software support in-house. This leaves our clients safe in the knowledge that requests will be resolved efficiently and promptly. Chris offers his thoughts on his experience so far as a Client Services Manager at Enable.

Founded in 2000, by entrepreneurs Denys Shortt OBE and Andrew Butt, Enable are the outsourced partner of choice for clients who wish to invest in continuous improvement through iterative development of their software products and business systems.

From our humble beginnings in a stable block, our team has grown to 75 people, half of whom are in technical software development roles. Our ambition is to double in size by 2020.

Our mission is to provide a vibrant and diverse working environment where everything we do, how we do it, and why we do it is rooted in two concepts: freedom and focus. Our employees have the freedom to work creatively, while our team structure and project processes allow them to focus entirely on solving any given challenge.
