We are closely monitoring developments around the spread of COVID-19 and can confirm we have in place a coordinated operational strategy across our offices.

We are doing everything we can to minimise the effects in these uncertain times with the wellbeing of our staff, clients and industry partners and overall business continuity, being our primary focus.

Staff in both our Newark and Manchester offices have been working collaboratively from home via secure VPN connections and access to our office resources via remote desktops.

Our systems are resilient and tested which enable us to continue to provide a fully uninterrupted and high quality service to our clients.

In accordance with Government guidelines we have suspended all non-essential travel and we have conference call/video link facilities in place.

We remain fully committed on live projects and we are here to continue exploring any new project opportunities.

Whilst our policy to work remotely ‘wherever possible’ remains in place, practical steps have taken place to prepare the office for staff to return and ensure compliance with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19. A Covid-19 risk assessment which identifies the control measures required to mitigate risk has been issued to staff and displayed in all of our offices.

The office phone line will remain answered 5 days a week and post will be regularly monitored during this time, however, please contact your usual UMC contact or main reception if you intend to send hard copy mail.

For all other enquiries, please contact us in the usual way either by the office phone number, mobile number or by email and we will work intelligently together to overcome the challenges ahead
