See what our customers have to say about our election services

Highlighted the word achievement

Since its establishment in 2000, UK Engage has grown to become one of the foremost providers of non-statutory electoral support services in the UK. So what better way for you to see why we’re the ideal partner for you, than by letting you read some of our customer testimonials.

 

As part of the new governance structure it was important that CIEH demonstrated our commitment to democracy and transparency. We wanted to put members at the heart of the election and so adopted a multi-channel approach. Using online and traditional methods, we were able to ensure all our members were given the option to participate in the election in a way which best suited them. UK Engage facilitated this process with excellent professionalism.

“This was Esterline’s first election of its kind and so we looked to UK Engage for election expertise and support. The account management of our Special Negotiating Body was extremely efficient and we felt fully supported throughout the process. UK Engage was attentive to Esterline’s specific requirements and we found them to be both agile and responsive to our needs.”

“We were extremely happy to have so many of our public members wanting to sit on the Council of Governors, it’s great to see that level of participation. We chose UK Engage because of their strong ideas for materials and processes to encourage participation in elections by our members and they provided a cost-effective service.”

“The design of the nomination form is fantastic! It features well-known, highly-motivated and dedicated staff. I know some of them very well. It is also a great idea to give Foundation Trust members the opportunity to email some of the questions, instead of hand writing all of the answers. Completing the form was a good experience.”
