NMS RECRUIT APPOINTS LISA CAREW AS OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

NMS Recruit Ltd has announced the appointment of Lisa Carew as its new Operations Director. Lisa joined the company as Operations Manager two-and-a-half-years ago and since then has been responsible for continuous growth in all NMS’ core operational areas, supplying permanent and temporary labour for the Commercial, Sales, Telecoms and Energy sectors. Rob Kurton, Managing Director at Russell Taylor Group, parent company of NMS Recruit Ltd, said: “Lisa’s appointment as Operations Director is a well-deserved promotion. Since taking over at NMS in 2017, she has built an excellent team and turned around the fortunes of the business. “She has led from the front from day one and, as such, has gained the respect of everyone who has worked with her. NMS has had an another excellent year and the future is very exciting indeed as we look to grow the company even further in 2020.” Lisa, based at the company’s headquarters at Burton Manor, Wirral, joined NMS with an impeccable reputation in the North West recruitment industry. She started her career 25 years ago as a raw recruit herself and went on to run her own business before heading up the NMS operation. She said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been appointed to this new role. It’s been a fantastic journey over the past two-and-a-half-years and I am very lucky to have found an amazing team that works so hard to support me in the growth of NMS. “I am proud of what we have achieved in terms of providing quality recruitment services and building great relationships with businesses both locally and nationally. We have plans to grow again next year and increase the NMS team further by another two or three consultants – so there are exciting times ahead.” As a subsidiary of Russell Taylor Group, NMS Recruit Ltd is part of Russell Taylor Holdings which this year became the fastest-growing privately-owned recruitment business in the UK as well as being named as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

THE CHANGES AND CHALLENGES OF 25 YEARS IN THE RECRUITMENT INDUSTRY

TECHNOLOGY and its effects on the working world is moving on at such a rate that it’s sometimes hard to remember exactly what was going on yesterday – let alone 25 years ago. But that’s just what recruitment expert Lisa Carew has been doing as she looks back on a career spanning a quarter-of-a-century, a time of change and challenge for an industry where – operating in a fast-paced environment – people still come first. Lisa, Operations Manager at NMS Recruit, has seen the recruitment business from all angles, firstly as a raw recruit herself, then running her own business and now heading up an expanding company supplying permanent and temporary labour for the Commercial, Sales, Telecoms and Energy sectors. As part of the Russell Taylor Holdings group of companies, which is the fastest-growing privately-owned recruitment operation in the UK, Lisa’s appointment just over two years ago was key to driving NMS forward in its expanding marketplace in the North West, North Wales area and working UK-wide within Sales, Telecoms and Energy. She and her team of six, based at the company’s headquarters at Burton Manor, Cheshire, have had an exceptional period of growth during this period, providing specialist recruitment services within their Commercial, Sales and Telecoms Division. But exactly 25 years on from her first day in the job, the values on which she built her reputation still hold good – that quality drives any recruitment operation and that what’s important is knowing what makes a perfect fit between client and candidate. It’s going that extra mile, working out-of-hours to ensure the needs of each client are understood, what they are looking for in terms of skillset and culture fit and then matching job candidates accurately. Lisa, who was 21 when she started her first job in recruitment with Chester-based The Business Connection, learned her trade at a time when the big call centres began to make their mark on the office and commercial landscape in the North West – MBNA and M&S both setting up huge operations in Chester. She said: “I was working as an Account Manager for MBNA and there were 100 temps on site every day. There were plenty of candidates available for work – here was a major company locating to Chester for the first time and bringing to the area thousands of jobs with great benefits and packages. “Other companies just had to sit up and take note. The tone was set for greater expectations by employees over pay and conditions.” Looking back to those early days, it seems hard to understand how a workforce with no conception of technology managed to get vacancies filled. Employers advertised vacancies in local or national newspapers, trade press or job directories and there were no job boards, no websites and no social media. Lisa explained: “It was a world with no internet and hardly any mobile phones. The main direct contact we had with candidates being placed in jobs was via their home landline telephones. “From taking a job from an employer through to sending them a candidate’s CV could take at least a week. We were totally reliant on the postal service but sometimes it was actually possible to get crucial documents delivered by hand. And then there were the fax machines which, at the time, seemed cutting edge but now are like museum pieces.” After eight years at The Business Connection, Lisa set up her own company Brighter Choices, again in Chester, operating in office support recruitment. She said: “By now, the internet was becoming an increasingly powerful tool in recruitment but the business was becoming tougher with more agencies coming onto the market. “Emailing between agencies, employers and job-seekers was beginning to take away real relationship building opportunities, vital to the all-important match of skills, job culture and personality of the key players in the exercise. In this climate, there was also the added pressure of ensuring your credibility in an industry where personal contact with the clients hiring and the candidates applying for vacancies was diminishing.” However, Lisa stuck to her guns and put personal contact at the top of the workplace agenda for herself and her team, simply by just picking up the phone or having face-to-face conversations rather than relying totally on internet working. Recruiting, training, networking and running her own business stood Lisa in good stead for the move to her current role at NMS Recruit. She said: “I’d had many successful years in the recruitment industry, starting from scratch and then building and developing my own agency. However, I wanted to be part of a much bigger organisation and, when this opportunity arose, it was perfect - and it was time for a new challenge. “These challenges are enormous as even more recruitment agencies are now out there competing for business. “It’s a time of major change in the industry when, with addressing the skills’ gap high on most businesses’ priority list, there’s nothing more important than sourcing the right workforce for employers so they can retain people and build their skills to achieve economic growth. “Obviously, some of the greatest changes have come with new technology. Using social media for hiring purposes is now at an all-time high with 92 percent of companies using platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook for recruitment. “And today candidates are the ones often in the driving seat, able to command more than just the best salary they can get but the whole jobs package, such as flexible working and career development plans. Some are often receiving multiple job offers and, if an employer can’t offer what they are looking for, they’ll ultimately lose them to a competitor that can. “However, even in this candidate-driven market where speed is as essential to getting candidates in place as providing companies with good quality, highly skilled people, one crucial factor remains constant – the personal touch by recruiters to make sure fast turnaround should never mean quality of candidate selection ever becomes compromised. “Better to have the philosophy of providing employers with quality rather than quantity, even if it means not sending candidates if they are not the right fit. A short-term gain benefits no one. “Twenty-five years on, embracing all the changes and challenges of new technology, economic uncertainty and evolving workplace practices, it’s still the people who come first whether it be the employers filling vacancies, those looking for employment or our own staff.”

POWER AND TECHNOLOGY JOBS TOP NMS RECRUIT'S "WANTED" LIST TO BRIDGE SKILLS GAPS

SOME of the hottest commodities on the employment market – due to their short supply in the Telecoms and Energy industries - are now high on the job-finding agenda of NMS Recruit. Turbine engineers for the power generation industry and audio visual (AV) technicians for a sector that’s growing faster than global GDP are currently topping the “wanted” list at a time when there’s an ever-increasing need in the UK to address skills shortages. And rewards are substantial for the professionals who realise they are in demand and – apart from carving out a successful careers – can ultimately become top earners. Lisa Carew, operations manager at NMS Recruit who is based at the company’s headquarters at Burton Manor, Cheshire, said: “Both industries are experiencing a growing demand for skilled people, but each for different reasons. “Power generation is typical of many sectors where an older workforce is reaching retirement age so their knowledge gained over a working lifetime could disappear with them, leaving a skills gap in the market. “Meanwhile, the AV market is growing at a pace to keep up with technological advances in areas that are expanding every day – in hospitality, the health sector, education and in retail along with business video conferencing the length and breadth of the country. “However, the common thread is that prime jobs are currently available with lots of potential for career progression. Added to that is the fact that being in demand means bigger windows of opportunity to earn more money.” Senior recruitment consultant Rachel Powell, who joined NMS Recruit specifically to launch its Telecoms and Turbine Engineering Division, said: “The power generation industry is hugely challenging not only from a commercial perspective but also because it’s one that operates in an extremely regulated environment. “Engineers who are working at oil and gas power stations - mainly on contract – therefore have to be highly skilled, have a strong work ethic and, importantly, are trained and certified to the highest Health & Safety standards. “But it means they are operating in a niche market where their expertise and skills are recognised and financially well rewarded.” For AV technicians, who install and operate visual, sound and lighting equipment and complete electrical wiring, programming and basic construction at sites including conference, event and shopping centres, hospitals, schools and universities, their demand is in a sector where the market for professional AV solutions and services is continually expanding. What was expected to end 2018 as a $186 billion worldwide industry is now forecast to hit $230 billion in 2023, growing – at a 4.3 per cent compound annual growth rate - twice as fast as global GDP. Rachel explained: “AV is no longer just good to have and used for leisure-type purposes; it is changing the way business is carried out and giving companies and services in the health and education sectors a means of operating more efficiently via their communications networks. It is also allowing hospitality and retail concerns to give customers better experiences in their hotels, restaurants and shopping centres. “The AV market in the UK – particularly in London – is already massive and getting bigger. As the market grows so does the number of job vacancies to fill with skilled and reliable people, from junior technical staff starting out in their careers after finishing college to highly-experienced AV engineers trained to the exacting standards the industry demands.” Lisa added: “Interestingly, these jobs in Telecoms and Engineering would not necessarily have been an automatic first choice for people starting out on their career paths. They are jobs that have evolved over recent years as economic circumstances and technological advances have changed the face of the world of work. “As a result, so many more doors of opportunity are now opening up to a new, modern workforce ready to bridge employers’ skills gaps and to create their own successful, challenging and well-paid careers.
