IT Recruitment Firm Celebrates Manchester Expansion

Corecom Consulting, a Leeds-headquartered IT recruitment firm, has recorded substantial growth within the last 12 months, as it opened an extra office in Manchester. The company has also extended its charity partnerships and gained new clients. Opened in January 2018, the Manchester office marked the launch of software testing community networking events in the region. The company has extended its support for Emmaus, a charity for the previously homeless, partnering with its Salford community in addition to Leeds. “We are ahead of our five per cent forecasted growth figure and on track to achieve a turnover of £4,940,125 and net profit of £474,978 by the end of 2018,” said Jonathan Sanderson, managing director at Corecom Consulting. Since the start of the year, the company has achieved 10 award shortlists including those for the company’s innovative marketing strategy, presence in the Manchester region, contributions to charity and for its entrepreneurial company leaders. “By 2019, we plan to open a third office in London. We are looking forward to and are committed to expanding our relationships across the North West and South East of England, including sharing our knowledge and expertise in the local communities in which we operate,” said Jonathan about future plans. Established in 2008, Corecom Consulting has grown from 15 to 24 employees over the last 12 months and the company plans to recruit an additional six members of staff at its Leeds HQ and is forecasting a year on year growth of eight per cent in both Leeds and Manchester by December 2019.

Fusion steps up recruitment drive to meet offsite demand

Northampton-based Fusion Building Systems has recently appointed two new team members and advertised for a further seven, in response to new contracts being won by the business as the popularity of offsite construction methods increases. Mark Webb has joined the light gauge steel superstructure manufacturer as a Project Site Manager from Stewart Milne Timber Systems, and Ahmed Sharif has been appointed as a Trainee Structural Engineer. Ahmed will combine his role at Fusion with studying for an MSc in Structural Engineering at the University of Surrey. In addition to these new appointments, Fusion has recently advertised seven new positions which require varying skillsets and levels of experience – two Site Managers, an Assistant Site Manager, a Structural Engineer, a Graduate Structural Engineer, a Design Team Leader and a Technical Designer. Mike Fairey, Fusion Building Systems director, said: “We’re clearly starting to see a shift change in the industry as more and more developers are sitting up and taking notice of the opportunity which offsite construction methods and light gauge steel presents. Every part of our business is experiencing this increase in demand so we’re excited about attracting new talent into the team to help us deliver on our promises, and open our eyes to new ideas.” The roles already filled and those being recruited for provide a snapshot of the expertise involved in offsite manufacturing. From creating building designs using state-of-the-art BIM (building information modelling) software, to managing the safe delivery and erection of a panelised, or smart modular, superstructures on site, Fusion is looking for graduate applicants through to those with engineering Chartership status. Mike continued: “Our new Trainee Structural Engineer, Ahmed has a blend of technical knowledge and onsite experience which will be of enormous benefit to our business and strengthen our in-house engineering team. While as Project Site Manager, Mark brings with him an enviable amount of industry knowledge and practical working experience of construction sites. Both are already considered valued team members and I look forward to seeing their careers develop with us.” Further information on the current vacancies at Fusion can be found at www.fusionbuild.com/vacancies or by emailing hr@fusionbuild.com

Salary Earners to See Increase According to Worldwide Survey

Robert Walters, a surveyor that has been in operation conducting surveys around the world since the year 2000, has released figures this year that indicate that the salary earners working in the field of mid-level supplies will go up by a very significant 11 per cent. This is without a doubt a very welcome piece of news to salary earners in this bracket of the work industry as it contrasts greatly to the mere 4 per cent average rise in the salaries of people in other senior positions in work. This evidence is clearly a sunnier alternative to the gloomy news and prospects that have been put in place as a result of fluctuating economies, the EU referendum and the surprising election results in the United States. This is clearly an encouraging sign to employers in the field who will want to encourage the popularity of the profession, and it is clear that the amount of applicants for positions in this sector is consistently high, due to the lucrative salary schemes available. In addition to this, members employed in the contract acquisition sector will see their annual salaries also rise, to slightly less impressive degrees, to a total of 8 per cent. As Mister Neil Morgan of the managing team of Robert Walters explains, it is evident that this strengthening of salary growth is a good sign for the contracting industry and a sign that there will still be a large demand for such senior positions in the years to come. Such skills as time management and an ability to multitask and juggle a number of different duties are essential to the job description of these senior roles in the business, and these are skills at least that will not be in shortage among those members of the British population wanting to get their foot in the senior careers door. And with an 11 per cent increase, who wouldn’t want to give it a go at some point in their life?
