What our team have to say

Charlotte Cook

HR & Operations Coordinator

Coming up with the Big Apple Walking Challenge during Covid-19 was such a great way to work together as a team, helping each other through a difficult time and most importantly fundraising for those in need – something that Ardent feels passionately about. I am already looking forward to the next challenge… watch this space!

Stuart Harradine

Technical Director of Land Assembly

Ardent’s cycle to work scheme offers significant savings on the price of a new bike and is a great way to encourage people to use bikes as an alternative to cars and other forms of transport. Cycling is one of my main hobbies and helps me to maintain a level of fitness as well as providing a great way to release stress and anxiety
