Metric Group are always looking to improve the skills and experience of its staff and to help them develop.
While it is sometimes necessary to look outside the business for new people to address any skills gaps, it is our preference to promote from within.
We will always look at our internal capabilities first, recognising and rewarding staff and using the available skills and capabilities to enhance our team as we continue to grow.
It is therefore with the greatest pleasure that we can announce the latest Metric Group promotions:
