A grand (summer) day out for the team
Alongside playing a role in some incredibly exciting electrical engineering projects, one of the many perks of being part of the Smith Brothers team is an annual invitation to an activity day of your choosing.
While 2020 meant our obligatory mid-year days out had to be put ‘on ice’, the recent lifting of restrictions meant that every member of the Smith Brothers family was given the opportunity to have a bit of fun outside of our Elland HQ – on a Friday and with full pay and expenses covered.
Molly Horrocks and Michelle Greenwood worked incredibly hard to make sure there was something to suit everyone, and colleagues could choose from go-karting, a day of fishing, or a trip to Roxy Ball Room – followed by a night out in Leeds.
Kicking off the events in August, a handful of the team headed into Leeds for a grand day out, while the first of two fishing trips – held a week later – ended up in an impromptu ‘food and drink tour of Whitby’ after a day on the water was rained off, courtesy of the UK’s unpredictable weather.
The second of our days on the water (on 20 August) was much more successful with plenty of fish caught prior to a well-deserved ‘chippy tea’. And finally, for the petrol-heads among us, a high-octane day at the local karting circuit is pencilled in for late September / early October – keep your eye on our social feeds for the winner!
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s no time for Michelle and Molly to catch their breath, as attention now turns to our annual Christmas ‘do’ – plans for which remain firmly under wraps for the time being! Of course, if this sounds like something you’d love to be a part of, we are recruiting for a range of roles at HQ and on site. Check out our latest vacancies, here.
