Gemma Chapman Celebrates outstanding 10-year Milestone

 It has been a special day of celebration today as we recognised an outstanding milestone of one of our longest-serving employees, Gemma Chapman, who has reached her 10-year anniversary at Elevation. Gemma, who was one of the first 5 hires at Elevation, has been with us from almost the very beginning. To mark the occasion, we had a mini celebration where she was presented with a Mulberry purse, flowers and champagne to thank her for her hard work and dedication.

Gemma said of her achievement “I am so proud to have been part of Elevation from the very early days. Seeing the business grow from just three people into the fantastic organisation it is now has been incredible. It has been such an amazing 10 years!”

Since joining the business in 2010, Elevation has changed dramatically and Gemma has been a key part of our development and success, especially in new markets. Gemma added “What has been great is the variety I have had since I started and the ability to work on many different projects across a number of Elevation’s brands. One of my biggest achievements during my career here, was being part of developing the Business Support brand and setting the groundwork for its exceptional success today. This was an amazing personal achievement for me and to witness the continued success of that team makes me so happy.

The main reason I love working here is the amazing people I work for and with. I very much consider them my work family and they are the reason that I love my job as much as I do! Developing a career for myself but also seeing some of my great friends and colleagues progress up the ranks, with some of them now Directors, has been an absolute privilege – I am so proud of them!

Elevation has been a massive part of my life for a whole decade – wow! So much has happened at work and at home since then – and I now have two beautiful children too! Having the support of Greg, Fran, John and the rest of the team, who understand the challenges of balancing and career and a young family, has meant I have been able to enjoy developing my career here, and continuing to do what I love, whilst still ensuring I can balance my family life.

I am blown away by the celebration we have had today and all the lovely and thoughtful words from everyone. Each and every person at Elevation has really had such an impact on my journey here. I really couldn’t imagine working anywhere else!

Greg Parkinson, Founder and CEO reflected on Gemma’s career within Elevation “Gemma first joined Elevation as my Secretary following a recommendation from previous colleague Simon Ensor. She threw herself into the job from minute one. She has always worked with true professionalism, with organisational skills I’ve never seen before and real enthusiasm! Gemma quickly moved on to become a successful recruiter across several brands and is now a vital cog in our Engineering and Manufacturing team.

Having such a hard-working, committed and loyal colleague, who is always willing to go the extra mile has been an absolute privilege and we are exceptionally lucky to have her. I want to say a personal thank you to Gemma for her unwavering commitment and dedication, she truly is an Elevation ambassador!”

Congratulations Gemma, here’s to another fantastic 10 years!
