Going 'back to basics’ is key for recruitment firm’s outstanding growth

Sky Recruitment Solutions is celebrating substantial growth having expanded from two members of staff to 10 in just a year. The business opened an office in Huddersfield town centre in early 2021, starting out with an account manager and a coordinator.

Twelve months on, staff numbers have swelled to 10, with five employees taken on in recent weeks. The new recruits are accounts co-ordinator Raymond Worby, contracts manager Alex Bull, account manager Macey Laverick, trainee account manager Danielle Hyland-Lister and Carl Thomas, who will be mechanical handling equipment (MHE) trainer.

Sky Recruitment Solutions, which specialises in providing personnel for industrial roles, also has branches in Derby, Ripley, Mansfield and Burton-on-Trent, as well as on-site offices in Castle Donington, Huddersfield and Elland. The success of the Sky Recruitment Solutions brand doesn’t stop there as there are plans to open a further office in Bradford in the next year.

Shane Callaghan, regional business manager for Sky Recruitment Solutions, was brought on board to help establish the Huddersfield office. “I think the key to our success has been ‘going back to basics’,” he said. “We look at the clients’ needs, rather than just putting bottoms on seats, and it works well. We listen to candidates as well, to make sure the job is right for them.

“I also think, for our staff, it’s all about the work-life balance we offer – it’s not a corporate, mundane environment. We all work as a team and support each other in and out of work,” he adds.

David Torrington, managing director of Sky Recruitment Solutions, added: “It’s fantastic to add to the Sky family, with eight offices across the Midlands and Yorkshire – and more to come.

“Our recent nomination for the ‘Outstanding Growth’ category in the East Midlands Chamber Awards is testament to the hard work put in by all at Sky. It’s definitely an exciting time to be part of the team.”

In-house recruitment for the Sky Recruitment Solutions team is ongoing.
