Though we miss him, we maintain a strong relationship and wish him the very best in his future career. In his absence, we warmly welcomed Nick, our new safety officer, who has seamlessly stepped into the role and is already excelling. Thank you, Nick, for joining our team, and keep up the excellent work!

Management Shakeup: Additionally, we’ve experienced a significant promotion within our ranks as one of our longest-serving employees, Max, has been promoted to the role of supervisor. Max has wholeheartedly embraced his new responsibilities and has garnered the respect of the workforce. Well done, Max!

Sports Day: For the third consecutive year, Stronghold Hire successfully defended the HLH vs SH Cup against our sister company, HLH Group. This year’s competition was incredibly intense, with the outcome hanging in the balance until the final stage of the last event. It was truly a nail-biting experience for all involved!
