Headline Sponsor & Sponsor of Yorkshire PA of the Year Award

We are incredibly proud to sponsor The Yorkshire PA Awards, working closely with The PA Hub and celebrating the brilliant work done by PAs across the whole of Yorkshire. It’s set to be a great evening, and we can’t wait to meet everyone on the night!

If you haven’t heard about Avenue HQ and Your Local Social, we’re happy to introduce ourselves. We have three sites across Liverpool and Leeds, through which we provide hubs for the local business and social communities. A mixture of workspace, event space, bars and restaurants combine in one site to keep our communities productive and happy, from their first coffee meeting of the day to celebratory after-work drinks.

Through Avenue HQ, we provide flexible and innovative workspaces for businesses of all sizes, from freelancers to FTSE 100. Through our mix of flexible desks, private office spaces, event spaces (did someone say rooftop bar?!), meeting rooms and more, our sites can accommodate to any kind of business need. With over 600 members across all sites, we have supported businesses as they grow, no matter their size – and we are always looking to support more.

Through Your Local Social (represented by East Parade Social in Leeds, and St Paul’s Social/Mann Island Social in Liverpool), our bars and restaurants prioritise the use of local products, local people and local passions to provide an authentically local experience. Across the UK there are growers, brewers and bakers making great things – we simply want to create spaces where they can be sipped, enjoyed and shared, through our unique menus.

Put simply, we love that our spaces encourage innovation, productivity, and can support the best of the cities we operate in – from the best food and drink to the incredible businesses and people driving that city forward! We look forward to celebrating the best of Yorkshire with you all soon.

Most of you will have already experienced the beautiful views from the stunning Sky Lounge terrace on the 13th floor or washed away a hard day’s work with a glass of wine in the sun on the Locks waterside.

Our meetings and events areas have also been given an amazing new look keeping in line with the modern feel to the DoubleTree by Hilton Leeds. We also have a new all-singing 360 view website in which you can look at all we have to offer at your fingertips.

No hard sell, no smoke and mirrors – just straight up, well-designed and professionally delivered events. Hi, we’re Grace and Tailor, your event delivery partner.

Grace & Tailor

Sponsor of Best Organised Event Award

Built in 1906, The Grand was once a palace of business – built in demonstration of the success of the North Eastern Railway Company, one of the wealthiest businesses of the Edwardian era, and serving as its headquarters for more than 80 years. Now reborn as a hotel, The Grand boasts a stately character with sweeping stone staircases, original wood panelling, parquet flooring and acres of marble. The extravagance and grandeur is all a reminder of the building’s former status as an icon of the golden age of railway travel.

Situated in the heart of York, just minutes from York Train Station, The Grand boasts seven meeting and event spaces including the impressive Grand Boardroom and Chairman’s Suite alongside a series of smaller suites, perfect for intimate meetings and private dining. The hotel has gone through somewhat of a transformation recently, with an expansion resulting in 207 spacious suites and rooms and two restaurants and bars, including fine-dining restaurant Hudsons, and The Rise Restaurant, Terrace & Bar. The Exclusive Lounge is a haven of relaxation and productivity, whilst the luxury spa, nestled in the building’s former vaults provides a tranquil escape.

The Cookery School at The Grand, York opened in March 2019 and offers a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility for both leisure and corporate guests. The Cookery School is the perfect setting for unique team-building experiences and entertaining delegates and features an adjoining meeting room and outdoor dining space.

Sponsor of Above and Beyond

In the UK there are hundreds of recruitment consultancies, spread across every niche area imaginable. So some may ask what we hoped to achieve when we created Sacco Mann in 1997?

Company founders, Rachael Mann & John Sacco, had previously worked together for several years in a large national recruitment company and were well established in Legal Recruitment. What they wanted to do next was build a business which was all about individuality, one that didn’t have a ‘one size fits all’ outlook.

They wanted to offer effective, proactive and tailor made solutions – in short they wanted to treat both clients and candidates the way they themselves wanted to be treated.

Sacco Mann was created with the edict “We want to laugh, get results and deliver a great service”.

21 years later and this is still the case.

I, Katy O’Loughlin, started at Sacco Mann in January 2017 & started their Legal Secretarial & Business Support division.

We cover the North West & Yorkshire, recruiting Legal PAs & EAs, Legal Secretaries, Administrators, Receptionists, Cashiers & Document Controllers.

Now a team of 4, we are proud to be sponsors of the Yorkshire PA of the Year awards & look forward to meeting & getting to know the PAs attending this year’s awards.

If you are considering a career move & would like a confidential chat then please give Katy or Leona a call.

Likewise, if you are a client needing some assistance with recruitment, salary benchmarking or market information, do not hesitate to get in touch.
