November Update

2018 has been an exciting year for DJS (UK) Limited. Not only have we moved to a much larger premises, and are now situated in the heart of Bournemouth, we’ve also been recognised regionally and nationally by a variety of esteemed bodies.

Early this year, we were awarded the silver award in the UK Employee Experience Awards. We wished to create a healthier and happier environment for our staff, so introduced a free healthy breakfast. A few croissants and crumpets may have snuck their way in over the last few months, but the sentiment remains the same! A fair few members of staff have given up smoking due to the initiative we brought in too.

Perhaps the largest contributing factor to the winning of this award though is the sense of community within the business. Although we work across a variety of teams, we have a collective culture, and all aim towards the same goals. We strive to reach the correct outcome, not the easiest one, regardless of the situation or individual.

In terms of more local awards, DJS (UK) Limited were recently accredited in the UK Southern Business Awards as the ‘Best Short Term Finance Software Developer’ in the south of England. We work hard to create technical solutions in-house to reach our goals, so were excited to win this award!

DJS (UK) Limited were also a finalist in the Dorset Business Awards this month. We were recognised as one of three businesses in Dorset that have shown incredible growth across the board. Moving forward, we hope to keep on this path, and grow in skill as well as size.

On Thursday 8 November, we will be attending the awards ceremony for the 2018 Lending Awards. PiggyBank, our short term lender, were shortlisted in three categories: Best Brand; Best Fintech Lender (Short-Term); and Customer Service Excellence – Alternative Lending.

‘Reflecting the wide remit of all these key components of the financial services space, the Lending Awards, sponsored by Experian, are the UK’s only awards that connect the consumer, residential and business lending industries. With 28 categories ranging from Best Commercial Lender, Best Mortgage Broker and Best Asset Finance Provider to Rising Star, Gamechanger and Best Brand, there’s something for everyone across this dynamic marketplace.’

We’re certain it will be a fantastic night, and were proud to be shortlisted, regardless of the winners. We’ll keep you posted with updates!
