At our quarterly update on Friday, our Employee of the month, Employee of the Quarter and latest lunch club destination and winners were announced.

Our well-deserved winner of the Employee of the Month title was Dave Slark.

Dave has been with Orion for nearly a year and works within our Software and Electronics sector.

The reason why Dave was chosen for the award was for the extra effort and commitment he put in throughout the month of December.

For most, this is a time when you slowly start to unwind but for Dave, he put in extra effort until the end, resulting in some impressive figures.   

Congratulations to Dave and we hope you enjoy the perks of being the employee of the month;

  • Qualified for Q3 lunch club
  • Threshold Free month
  • Prime Parking space

Taz Akhtar was announced as our Employee of the quarter for Q3.

Taz is one of our established employees. She has been with Orion since 2006 and is one of our Recruitment Team Managers within the Reading office.

Taz’s dedication and commitment to supporting her clients ever growing hiring needs knows no limits. With over 10 years in recruitment you’d think she’d have been faced with every challenge possible, yet it seems this is not the case and Taz continues to go above and beyond to ensure her client’s needs are not only met but exceeded. Taz, well done on another excellent quarter.

For winning the award, Taz has received a £500 voucher to go towards some new business attire.

It was announced that this quarters luxury lunch club destination is to The Ivy Market Grill in the heart of London’s Covent Garden.


The well-deserved winners that will be heading off this Friday are; Dave Slark, Taz Akhtar, Lee Dymott, Tom Johnson, Alison Kemp, Oliver Johnston, Grant Nesbitt and Rebecca James.

We hope they all enjoy themselves and we look forward to hearing all about it on Monday.
