Distance no object as NMS bridges 8,000-mile recruitment gap

THE perfect job may have been more than 8,000 miles away – but distance was no object for NMS Recruit achieving Shannon Gray’s dream of a new start for her family by working in the UK’s booming Telecoms fibre industry. Within only a matter of days of making the decision to find employment here, Shannon was planning a life-changing move to Manchester from their home in South Africa. A chance CV posted online, picked up inside an hour by NMS principal consultant Rachel Powell (pictured, left, with Shannon), an internet interview date the following day – and Shannon had a job offer two days later. Now settled and happy in her role as a Fibre Planner with network provider Freedom Fibre at their headquarters in Irlam, she said: “Starting this job has been an absolute dream come true. “Although I am still battling with the emotional roller-coaster of moving so far away, being here is like a home from home. “At first I was shocked as it all happened really fast but, at the same time, I was so excited. Rachel has literally helped me and my family achieve our dream of coming to the UK.” Shannon’s career in fibre planning and design began five years ago. She started out, she says, knowing absolutely nothing about the growing industry in South Africa but “fell completely in love with it”. However, she and her husband both agreed to pursue a life in the UK for themselves and their young son – but where to start? She explained: “I decided to take a chance on sending out my CV to companies in the UK Telecoms industry. I saw a position for a Senior Fibre Planner and, although I didn’t have the years’ experience required, I thought I would give it a go and emailed it. “This is where my journey began. Rachel responded within an hour, asking if we could have an online Teams meeting – she liked my CV, she said, and there could be some other opportunities I could apply for. I was so happy.  “Rachel decided to take a chance on sending my CV to Freedom Fibre and the very next day I was given an interview date. Two days later I had got the job.  “Accepting it was a difficult decision to make but we realised this was our opportunity to have a better life, especially for our son. I had to make the journey here by myself - probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.  “Leaving them both behind wasn’t easy but knowing I was being helped by Rachel, as well as starting work for an amazing company, helped ease the process. From the very beginning, she was an absolute blessing. She was so hands-on, explained everything and kept me in the loop all the time. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to have helped me land this position.  “Professionalism isn’t even a word I can use to describe her way of working as she is way more than that - I have made a really good friend as well!” Lisa Carew, Operations Director at NMS Recruit, added: “The rapidly-moving digital world in which we operate means we can now fast-track employers and job-seekers into employment. “Going the extra mile – in this case more than 8,000 of them – and setting Shannon and her family on the road to a new life has been a very rewarding experience for Rachel and the team here at NMS “However, creating that perfect fit for Freedom Fibre and Shannon was more than a job-matching exercise. It was a unique challenge and one where Rachel’s people skills and precise knowledge of the Telecoms market brought such a speedy, successful result for everyone.” Four months into her role at Freedom Fibre, Shannon looks back on the vital support she’s had from her employers, from the HR team who helped ease her in to a new life so far away from home – both from a workplace and personal perspective – to her friendly and helpful colleagues. She said: “I work with an amazing team and we have gelled well together. I absolutely love what I do and working for a company like this is beyond what I could have ever have hoped for. “Words can’t describe how grateful I am for everyone taking the chance on me. It has been such an adventure.” Praising Shannon for her life-changing actions, Keith Vicary, Head of Fibre Design at Freedom Fibre, said: “Overcoming the extremely difficult circumstances and the emotional roller-coaster of experiences to make a new start here - especially during those early days - is testament to Shannon’s character, her desire to succeed and total commitment to providing a new and more stable life for her family. She has come through with flying colours. “Shannon has quickly become an integral and reliable part of our design team and her bubbly personality is infectious. She’s a real asset to Freedom Fibre and a role model for others with similar ambitions. “She’s also proof that women, in this male-dominated industry, do have a rightful and valued place alongside their male colleagues.”

Electric vehicles accelerate NMS Recruit’s environmental commitment

COMMITMENT to the green agenda is moving up a gear for NMS Recruit as the business begins to go electric for its company vehicles. Leading the way for NMS, part of the Russell Taylor Group of companies, is Operations Director Lisa Carew whose vehicle is among an expanding fleet of three fully electric cars and three hybrids, all of which can be charged at business’ Burton Manor headquarters. Russell Taylor Group Managing Director Rob Kurton sees the switch from petrol and diesel as another route for the company to embed sustainability into workplace culture. He said: “We have always been aware of our responsibility to act environmentally and socially and listen to the concerns of our employees who see action for change as a major part of their lives. “Switching to electric vehicles is yet another way to reduce our carbon emissions and set us on the green path to help tackle environmental issues.” Already, NMS recycles all its paper and card through a locally-based waste carrier. Milk is also delivered daily in recyclable glass bottles, again from a local dairy. Although face-to-face meetings with employers hiring staff and with candidates seeking employment have now been resumed after the pandemic, recruitment consultants are focussed on cutting down on travel to reduce carbon emissions and are continuing to use Zoom and Teams where they can to conduct business. The company also encourages staff to take up the government Bike2Work scheme where employers can offer tax savings on bikes and cycling equipment, creating healthier lifestyles and reducing environmental pollution. As the electric car fleet increases so will the number of charging points in the Burton Manor car park. For Lisa, the switch to electric travel has becoming life-changing. She said: “Apart from it being the right thing to do to create a cleaner environment, the other benefits are huge. Running costs are much lower and the car gets charged up while I’m in work – so no more queuing at the petrol pumps.” In a bid to accelerate the UK’s road to net zero, the sale of cars fuelled wholly by diesel or petrol will be banned by 2030. A ban on the sale of hybrid cars is then set to follow from 2035.

RACE AGAINST TIME FOR EMPLOYERS AS THEY TACKLE WORKPLACE TALENT SHORTAGE

A LIFELINE is being handed to employers by NMS Recruit in a bid to stem the current tide of workplace talent shortages. New working patterns created by two years of pandemic challenges have totally changed the face of attracting and retaining staff to meet future trading needs – job-seekers are now the ones steering the course of their chosen careers. And the solution to keeping businesses buoyant as they embrace these changes, says NMS Recruit’s Operations Director Lisa Carew, is for employers to act swiftly in the hiring process. She said: “It truly is a race against time for employers who are desperate to rebuild their workforce as the economy begins to bounce back. “The whole face of recruiting has seen massive changes during the pandemic years and now, more than ever, it’s the job-seeking candidates who are in charge. “If employers find the right one for a particular role, they can’t delay over a job offer. If they do, that person will, in the meantime, have already gone somewhere else.” The past two years have seen radical changes in attitudes to working practices; with more time to analyse lifestyles, employees began to question their jobs and careers. Then, when businesses started to open up again, many realised they didn’t want the old routines, leaving in droves to pursue new ways of living and working. The result has been a nationwide pattern of job vacancies and a shortage of talent to fill them, creating one of the biggest challenges ever facing employers. Lisa continued: “All this has happened at a time when the economy is beginning to get back on its feet. The telecommunications sector – one of our main areas of recruitment – is a perfect example. It’s currently booming and is forecast to grow like we’ve never seen before. “Office support and customer services, where there’s the flexibility of hybrid working and working from home, are also areas where people are very much in the driving seat in this candidate-driven market and therefore can pick and choose their jobs.” A massive issue for employers, Lisa explained, is that in this current setting job-seeking candidates can sometimes have up to eight jobs in their sights.  She said: “Once, candidates would be interested in one job and, if they didn’t get it, would then move on to another and try again. Now it’s a totally different story. They are almost completely in charge and can select whatever job they think best. “Another interesting take on this is that many candidates want jobs in spheres other than those where they spent their previous working lives. They are choosing other skillsets, different operational areas and a wide range of salaries whereas in the past they would maybe stick to what they had done before. “It’s a whole new set of experiences they’re after and they know exactly what they want to fit in with their lifestyles.” She added: “There’s a whole new breed of workforce out there, talented people who have totally a different attitude to the jobs market to the one pre-pandemic. “Speeding up the recruitment process is our key to solving the growing problem of this workplace talent shortage – knowing exactly what the candidate wants in terms of working day practices, career progression, salary and so on - so we can present employers with an even shorter shortlist to get them in place. “It means they can then act swiftly and grab the right people for their business – before someone else does.”

E-BIKE BOOM PUTS NMS RECRUIT AT THE HUB OF JOBS GROWTH

A GLOBAL shift towards sustainability has put NMS Recruit at the hub of huge jobs growth activity in a sector that’s racing to meet consumer demand. The use of urban electric bikes has been speeding up worldwide as concerns mount about the impact of vehicle emissions on air quality in our towns and cities. A massive surge in home food deliveries – initially the result of the pandemic lockdown and still growing - has also seen a need for quick and cheap transport measures become ever more vital to delivery businesses operating in a fast-paced environment. As NMS prepares to hit a record trading quarter - 42 per cent up on March 2021 - the e-bike boom is firmly gearing up to contribute to the company’s success as it moves into worldwide recruitment for jobs in electric cycle-related industries and services. Demand among employers experiencing this trading upturn in e-bike manufacture and retail has increased not just in the UK but in New York, the Netherlands and Nairobi, with NMS now recruiting here for commercial roles as well as for technicians and engineers. And, said Alex Drury, who heads up the company’s Sales Division, this major new recruitment initiative all stemmed from a partnership with one small London-based e-bike company searching for staff in the capital where electric transport is seen as crucial to tackling traffic congestion and carbon emissions. He explained: “It soon became obvious that the market for e-bikes has become massive. The green agenda means everyone is now aware of global environmental issues and increasingly businesses and individuals are taking action to reduce vehicle emissions and cut their transport costs. “More and more traffic-heavy towns and cities are getting equipped with cycle lanes and bringing in cycle hire schemes which encourage people to take to the road on bikes, particularly electric ones. The obvious result is an increased demand for staff by companies worldwide who are manufacturing, selling and servicing them.” The UK e-bike market is now worth £280 million in sales with evidence pointing to serious growth as the government’s plan to completely ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by the end of the 2020s gets closer. In New York, e-bikes are outselling electric cars while in the Netherlands there’s already an outstanding bicycle infrastructure with more than 35,000km of cycle ways throughout the country and an ingrained culture of cycling over driving. And in Nairobi environmental measures are being taken to counteract the effects of traffic congestion on urban air quality by getting people to switch to green transport, with particular emphasis on e-bikes. However, an interesting twist on the economic good fortunes of the e-bike industry has come out of the coronavirus pandemic. Alex said: “Throughout lockdown, there was an enormous surge in the amount of home deliveries of fast food. Here the e-bike well and truly came into its own - nippy, cheap to run and, most importantly, getting hot food delivered quickly. “Even though Covid restrictions are now gone, there’s still no sign of demand slowing down with ‘ordering in’ now looking like a permanent fixture when it comes to dining.” NMS Recruit’s Operations Director Lisa Carew said the urban electric bike revolution was becoming a key component in the business’ trading operation as green transport becomes an increasingly important environmental issue. Despite supply chains being heavily hit, the e-bike market continued to increase during the pandemic crisis and sales in the UK are now expected to triple over the next three years. She added: “As we take steps to rebuild the economy and, at the same time, keep our focus on moves towards sustainability, it’s rewarding to see jobs expanding in diverse areas such as electronic cycles, their manufacture, sales and service provision. “It’s also a perfect example of us immediately identifying a potential growth area and seizing the opportunity to give employers the right workforce to keep their businesses buoyant.”
