EVONA PURPOSE – WE’RE SO MUCH MORE THAN A RECRUITMENT COMPANY
EVONA is a young, unique, dynamic company leading the way in the global space sector. We work with some of the most innovative companies on the globe (and off it!) in a market estimated to be worth $3 Trillion, but we’re also so much more than that. Behind all of this, we are a team of individuals who are passionate about our jobs and the company we work for. We don’t have the dreaded Sunday night anxiety many recruiters face, and we genuinely look forward to coming to work and contributing towards the rapidly growing space sector.
Apart from the unlimited remote working, zero KPI’s and managing your own working hours, we believe one of the (many) reasons our crew love working here is because we encourage and support them to be able to have any additional ‘purpose’ outside of their everyday recruitment role. Although we love our job and placing brilliant people into amazing companies is at the forefront of what we do, we know giving the option of an additional purpose boosts moral, overall wellbeing and ultimately job satisfaction.
This ‘purpose’ can be anything our team feel passionate about, and we do this because we believe in the evolution of knowledge and in the progression of our people – which is exactly where our name stems from: EVO – to evolve, ONA – people. Here are just a few examples….
Adele Fox – Head of Marketing and Sustainability Advocate
Glen Gill – Space Business Partner and Social Issues Champion
‘I like to champion for CSR at EVONA, as I think it is important to create a positive impact in relation to local social and economic issues. EVONA have organised a variety of activities; over Christmas we collected food and clothing for the homeless and later this year we will be running the Bristol Half Marathon to raise money for Young Minds. As well as raising awareness of important issues, the activities we organise bring the team together and give us a group objective, which naturally means we work more collaboratively on a daily basis.’
Alice Grant – Senior Technical Recruitment Consultant and Content Marketing Executive
‘EVONA’s ethos to believe in the evolution in their people was shown to be when they offered me the chance to work a hybrid-role and combine recruitment with my other passion for Content Marketing! I studied English with Writing at University and I really enjoy creating content. I love having the chance to get creative and it allows me to break up my day with different tasks and learn new skills, which I wouldn’t have gained in a sole recruitment role. Lots of recruitment companies promise a lot of things before you join, but EVONA really do stick to their word.’
Emma Jackson – Technical Recruitment Consultant and Stem Volunteer in schools
Chloe Jakeways – Principal Technical Recruitment Consultant and Podcast host
Jake Heal – Senior Recruitment Consultant – AKA ‘King of Fun’
‘Socialising as a team is important. It brings us together and gives us a chance to talk about more than just work. I organise a night out every month for the whole team like bowling, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, or something just as simple as a bite to eat and a few drinks. It keeps the team motivated and ultimately makes EVONA a better place to work”
Sam Lewis and Joe Duff, Recruitment Specialists and Thought Leaders
‘Everyone is fascinated by the space sector but when joining EVONA not many people have a deep understanding of the technologies and nuances within it. What better way to upskill our knowledge than from speaking to, and learning from industry experts? I love the space sector and building my knowledge base is key to me improving the service to my clients, candidates and to helping guide those looking to take their first step into the sector.’ (Sam)
When it comes to employee benefits, we don’t have a one size fits all approach. After 6 month’s service, and with the help our Financial Advisor, our crew choose their own benefits. If you join us, you can decide what works for you, your life, and your PURPOSE. Please reach out to find out more.
*If you’re not sure what your purpose is just yet, you can join and work that out along the way. Most of the crew have found their ‘purpose’ after already starting and there is no expectation or pressure to find an additional purpose outside your everyday role, we offer a relaxed culture with full autonomy to work how you work best.*
