Growth surge for NMS Recruit’s Telecoms Sales Division

​RAPID expansion of the UK Telecoms industry is powering up specialist recruiters NMS Recruit to a predicted year of significant growth.Already in pole position for high-speed delivery of vital jobs in the sector, focus is now on filling a nationwide need for sales roles, largely due to further massive movement in the provision of full-fibre broadband and its impact on the economy and the environmentTo service this huge client demand, NMS Recruit has embarked on its own expansion path for its Sales Division, based at the company’s Wirral headquarters of Burton Manor.Already, the Sales team has doubled in size over the past 12 months and, headed by Divisional Manager specialist Alex Drury, the business is expecting this move will greatly contribute to its turnover tripling within the coming year. Operations Director Lisa Carew explained: “Ongoing plans for new installations of full-fibre networks and high-speed cable broadband throughout the UK - and operators’ commercial recruitment campaigns - have taken us to high levels of activity. “We’re in a situation where the Telecoms industry climate is constantly changing, opening up more doors of opportunity for employment. In recent years, we’ve experienced a huge boost to the UK jobs market with new installations of full-fibre networks and high-speed cable broadband - but now we’re looking at even greater real growth in the sector over the next three years.“There’s already been a whole stream of job openings, from roles for engineers, planners and surveyors to project and operational managers, technical co-ordinators and office support staff. However, the greatest impact on our business at the moment is through our Telecoms Sales Division as we work in partnership with Internet Service Providers,  IT specialists and Managed Service Providers to fill their increasing number of vacancies.”NMS Recruit took a forward leap in activity in the early post-Covid years when investment in broadband connectivity spurred jobs growth due to nationwide working from home arrangements, greater focus on supply to rural and hard-to-reach areas and a boom in TV streaming.Lisa added: “As a result, since 2020 we have seen year-on-year growth, each period from then onwards seeing our turnover tripling. Already, 2023 figures for the half-year are extremely positive and likely to show even greater significant growth by the year end.”The latest additions to Alex’s team in the Sales Division are Recruitment Consultants Jayden Crimp, Danny Mongan and Louis Frost.Alex said: “Jayden, Danny and Louis have become vital members of our expanding division at NMS as our focus is firmly fixed on the growing demand for sales roles in the Telecoms and IT industry.“We are operating in a fast-moving environment that’s constantly changing and advancing. Full-fibre development is helping to resolve issues of slow internet speed and greater productivity for a remote workforce still operational post-Covid and whose former reliance on work travel - many of them living in remote, rural areas - has actually begun to reduce carbon emissions.“The delivery of the right people to fill Sales roles is therefore crucial to the successful operation of clients such as Internet Service Providers, many of the smaller ones now beginning to take a bigger share of the marketplace.”

Russell Taylor Group unveils new Training Academy

RUSSELL Taylor Group has begun a major new initiative to equip its workforce with the skills to strengthen the economy.Now with its own Training Academy, the company is expanding its “home-grown” talent focus to train, develop and up-skill its recruitment teams - from apprentices just joining the business to existing staff on a route to senior management roles.Among delegates on the first programme are 10 new trainees recently taken on by Burton Manor-headquartered Russell Taylor Group, its Wirral-based subsidiaries Recruit Right and NMS Recruit and Perpetual Partnerships, based in Knutsford.The intensive course, running from now until November, is being held at Burton Manor and led by Russell Taylor Group’s training partner Andy Cain, a recruitment specialist with industry experience spanning more than 25 years.Company chairman Peter Russell said: “A workplace strategy of training and developing our own home-grown talent to become the white-collar workforce of the future has been at the forefront of our operations since business start-up 17 years ago. In this period, we’ve supported more than 50 apprentices, many of whom have stayed with us to become key players and senior managers.“However, the new Training Academy has taken our focus to the next level as we plan another ambitious expansion pathway for the business. By further investing in talent and training, we recognise that our people are our most important asset. They belong to the future of our business - as we continue to grow so do they.“And for employers working with us to recruit labour, it means we can open up greater doors of opportunity to provide them with the right workforce with the right skills to make their businesses flourish.”The Russell Taylor Group Training Academy will take recruiters through a programme of workshops covering marketplace activity and its current challenges, sales techniques, negotiation, developing client relationships, regulatory compliance and, finally, leading them to a detailed presentation to their managers.Andy Cain, pictured with some of the trainees, said: “The course is intensive, as it needs to be in an industry like recruitment which is fiercely competitive. “The world of work has changed virtually beyond recognition over the past few years so it’s vital that recruiters are equipped with the knowledge and training to perfectly match employers’ current needs with the skills of those seeking work.“The academy workshops are all about success – for Russell Taylor Group and its workforce and for the impact they will have on business’ future hiring processes.”Russell Taylor Group managing director Rob Kurton added: “Having an expertly-trained team of recruiters has never been more important than now.“As a business, we have come through a challenging couple of years in all our operational sectors of recruitment – from technical, engineering and construction through telecoms, energy and sales to industrial and commercial – and forecasts for this year and onwards are looking good.“However, we have a situation nationally where skilled job-seekers are in charge of the labour market and likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future. The Training Academy will now see our recruiters uniquely placed to make successful inroads into plugging some of these skills gaps as we all work to rebuild the UK economy.”

The Talent Tent for girls who want to aim high

RECRUITMENT specialists from Russell Taylor Group and NMS Recruit have been encouraging girls to aim high for their job goals as they joined Merseyside Police for the first Leasowe United Community Day on Wirral. Led by group chairman Peter Russell, they also partnered up with local training providers and community groups to introduce young women living on the Leasowe estate to life-changing opportunities and inspire them to take their first career steps. The community day, held at Leasowe Recreation Centre, had evolved from work by Constable Alison Inman and Constable Claire Ryan, from the force’s Wirral Community Team, and aimed at creating safer communities and greater opportunities for the estate’s young people. Top sporting action also formed part of the Leasowe United project as around 150 young sportswomen, aged between 12 and 17 from all over Wirral, competed in an all-female football tournament, designed to build their confidence and realise their potential both on and off the pitch.  Operating from the ground’s Talent Tent, Peter and his team - group HR manager Jennifer Scott, Manufacturing Division manager Kelly Newell, Hannah Williams, who runs Scientific Division’s Certification Desk, Isaac Hayes, a former apprentice and now labour co-ordinator, along with Zoe Beard, business support co-ordinator with Russell Taylor Group subsidiary NMS Recruit - gave valuable one-to-one advice to the girls to help set them on the road to further education, apprenticeships and employment. Peter said: “It was an amazing day and a delight to see so many girls showing their competitive spirit and really giving their all to a full day of high-action football. “With our support team of coaches, inspirational achievers and employment recruiters, our role there was to help channel the girls’ energy and skills into the next important stage of their lives - the development of their careers. “Hopefully, we helped to kick-start employment goals and make a difference to the future of these young people.” Merseyside Police Chief Constable Serena Kennedy added: “Merseyside Police are committed to working with our partners and communities and Leasowe United is a great example of what can be achieved when working together. “Initiatives like this that offer our young people an opportunity to bring all their potential to the fore are so important. I hope this inspires them to embrace new challenges and to take the steps to further education or into the world of work.” Russell Taylor Group, main sponsor of Leasowe United, was joined in the Talent Tent by its professional partners Willaston Physio, who provided a physiotherapy service throughout the day for the young players, while The Hive Youth Zone, also supported by the business, had qualified youth workers on hand to give advice about a full range of issues affecting young people to raise their aspirations and confidence.

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.”
