A real cause for celebration at our Harvey Shopping Centre in Harlow, where three of our staff members have long service achievements to be very proud of.

Between them, Scott Wright, David Sole and Paul Ewart have 55 years of dedicated and continuous service to the centre.

Scott joined The Harvey Centre in December 2003 as a security officer and was soon promoted to Security Supervisor. He is a well-loved and valued member of the team and his length of service reflects his dedication to the centre. Scott is always willing to help the team and tenants and was awarded Employee of the Year in 2023 in the local town centre awards.

Scott is also an extremely talented artist, having created many pieces of work for the centre over the years, more recently doing a beautiful portrait of the King for Coronation Day.

Some of his huge works of art can be found on the carpark roof and during Covid he produced a wonderful tribute to Captain Tom which lifted the spirts of our customers and passers-by.

Backbone of the centre, Dave has ensured the smooth running of things such as heating, sprinklers and water supply since he joined the Harvey Centre in October 2008. He is always on hand to support the greater team in our hour of need and often attends the site out of his working hours to offer support.

Dave readily shares his knowledge with his colleagues, has a great manner and always has time for his team, which not only benefits his colleagues but the centre as well.

And last but not least, Paul joined The Harvey Centre in September 2001 as a Security Officer, making him the longest serving of the three.  Paul has such a lot of experience across all departments of security, cleaning and maintenance and is very much valued. He was quickly promoted to Security Supervisor and more recently has also taken on the role of centre Caretaker. Paul will frequently adjust his working hours to suit the needs of the business.

Comment from Managing Director, Nick Atkinson:

“Staff retention is a corner stone of our business, something we work hard to ensure at all our client locations across the country. Our staff are our biggest asset and knowing that we provide a working environment where people want to stay and make a difference shows we must be getting a lot right!

My heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Scott, Paul and Dave on their continued commitment.”
