A Nottingham-based communications agency is celebrating after earning recognition in this year’s UK Enterprise Awards.
The Effective English Company, which provides an extra pair of hands to busy in-house communications teams around the UK, was named the Best Business Communications Support Company in the SME News-run award programme.
The team, led by director Ali Marsland, was commended for demonstrating excellence and commitment in the face of uncertainty. “I’m incredibly proud we’ve won this accolade,” said Ali. “We’ve been working to support busy communications teams in the NHS and other industries since 2013 and this year has been one of the toughest yet. This award win is a real testament to the dedication and creativity of our team.”
The Effective English Company works predominantly with the NHS and other health sector organisations providing extra capacity and support on a flexible basis – with no commitment, no obligation and no catch. The service has been well received over the last seven years and the team has offered invaluable support to clients including several NHS trusts, a private healthcare provider, a children’s charity and a housing organisation.
Having worked remotely since its inception, the team has been able to continue to support organisations across the UK throughout the restrictions imposed this year without changing its normal working practices and has been able to help others with the transition to working from home.
Ali continued: “We’ve seen just how difficult things have been for many of our clients during the pandemic, particularly those working in the NHS, and we hope we can continue to lighten the load for communications teams as they navigate through the uncertainty of the next few months. This award win will only help to motivate us more in our work.”
Now in its fourth year, the SME UK Enterprise Awards programme continues to recognise small and medium sized enterprises across the UK. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.
