On Tuesday 28th June 2022, Vertas Group participated in the Festival of Suffolk Business Expo, celebrating business innovation and success in Suffolk – inspiring people to think about great jobs, building careers and exploring opportunities.

The day began with an interactive and engaging morning event at Suffolk County Council’s Endeavour House for local Year 10 students showcasing the Group’s multiple services. Just some of the activities included a VR experience with Concertus, tips on how to create a great CV with Opus People Solutions, ‘What’s the hidden ingredient?’, a recycling game and fun on a Smoothie Bike.

Students attended from both The Bridge School and Northgate High School.

Activity then transferred to The Hold, where the Group hosted an evening networking event for clients and stakeholders from across the county. The evening event focussed on bringing people together around the topic of sustainability and saw exhibitions from Group subsidiaries Vertas Environmental, Oakpark, Concertus and Opus as well as local charity Groundwork East.

Ian Surtees MBA FIoD, Group Chief Executive Officer, Vertas Group said: “We were delighted to have been approached to take part in the Festival of Suffolk’s Business Expo events. It was our pleasure to welcome young people to Endeavour House to highlight to them all the career opportunities Vertas Group has to offer in a fun and engaging morning of activities. Our evening networking event was a real success – it was great to see so many people from across the county come together to celebrate what they are doing alongside Vertas Group to achieve a more sustainable future for Suffolk.”
