BillSaveUK Scaffolding Division to Double Workforce29th March 2017
Business is on the up for Leicester-based BillSaveUK as its Scaffolding Division looks to double its workforce to meet the demands presented by a number of recent contract wins.
The national energy efficiency business employed 10 people in its Scaffolding Division at the end of 2016. But having recently secured long-term scaffolding contracts from two of the UK’s largest housebuilders, BillSaveUK has added a further four full-time employees to its field-based team and is currently recruiting for another six – bringing its total headcount, including office-based staff, to 25.
The new roles are for experienced scaffolders to work on new build sites mainly across the East and West Midlands. And, the immediate work requirement is to service a number of long-term contracts for 200 or 300-plot developments, each with multiple phases.
Derek Marsden, operations manager at BillSaveUK, said: “Our Scaffolding Division has over 30 years’ experience. Historically our work focussed on a handful of long-standing clients, but following the launch of BillSaveUK 18 months ago, word has spread about our capabilities. And now, thanks to our new contract wins we’re extremely excited about recruiting for a larger, full-time workforce.”
Scaffolders working for BillSaveUK are CISRS card holders and the team is well-known in the industry for its high standards of health, safety and quality of work. For each new build project, BillSaveUK commits a dedicated team to design, erect and dismantle the scaffolding requirements and the Company has also recently invested in a new fleet, specifically designed to enable direct loading and unloading on site.
Derek continued: “We’re proud of what we do, of the high standards we work to and how we adapt to meet our client’s requirements. I’m confident the growth we’re experiencing at the moment is set to continue and that we’ll soon be looking to fill managerial roles to support our field-based staff. We’re also in the process of developing opportunities for apprentices to join the team – hopefully more on that soon.”
