Trade body instructs entire team to work from home as Coventry event postponed
Following the issuing of government guidance in relation to the coronavirus outbreak, the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) has closed its physical London head office at 33 Eastcheap until further notice.
By adopting a full virtual remote working plan for all staff, the functionality of the Association will continue unimpeded but the upcoming events in Coventry on Wednesday 18th March have been postponed.
No members of the NACFB’s head office team have shown any of the symptoms of the virus and no staff have tested positive for the COVID-19 flu strain, the decision to work remotely has been taken as an entirely precautionary measure.
As of yet there are no plans to postpone either April’s NACFB Commercial Broker Awards or June’s Commercial Finance Expo – both set to be held in Birmingham. Their status will be monitored and all updates issued daily through the NACFB Morning Briefing.
Commenting on the office closure, NACFB CEO Graham Toy, said: “The safety and wellbeing of our head office team remains paramount. Given our City of London location and the reliance on mass public transport for many of our team’s commute, we have taken the decision to close our head office whilst the current situation persists.
“All meetings with the head office team will be rescheduled and we will continue to monitor the latest official guidance before making any further decisions regarding upcoming NACFB events.”
The NACFB will endeavour to remain fully operational in a remote setting, but stakeholders are advised to submit any enquiries via email where possible.
