24-7 Staffing has appointed Dan McLeod and Carl Stenning as branch managers.
McLeod has become manager of the firm’s recently opened Bristol branch. At its headquarters in Chippenham, Stenning takes over the reins. Both branches had been under the leadership of associate director, Paul Squires, who is now able to concentrate on his role as head of recruitment and training.
It has also taken on a non-executive chairman, Jonathan O’Shea, who is working with the management team to help develop the business. Jonathan is an experienced senior executive and is a facilitator for The Alternative Board, which helps forward-thinking business owners grow their businesses and increase profitability.
Managing director, Julian Thompson, said, “The appointment of Dan, Carl and Jonathan are an important part of the development plans for 24-7 Staffing.
“Key to our expansion is recruiting, training and retaining our own staff, and we are currently looking for 40 people to join the team. We put the same effort into our internal recruitment process as we do for our clients, and our on-going training and career development enables us not only to attract talented individuals but retain them.”
Stenning has a 25 year career in recruitment, and has experience in all four sectors served by 24-7 Staffing: commercial, driving, industrial and healthcare. Prior to joining the team, he was running his own business as a recruiter for recruitment companies.
He commented, “I was keen to join 24-7 Staffing as they are a company who really knows where they are going, and have a firm plan in place. I’m planning to concentrate on building on the great work Paul has done in Chippenham, by strengthening our sectors and utilising the experience we have within the branch.”
McLeod has been in recruitment for three years, and joins 24-7 Staffing following a short career break. Prior to that he was branch manager for another Bristol recruiter. He stated, “We are gradually building things up, but it will take time as this is a newly relocated branch. We are recruiting for our own staff here, which will really help us gain momentum.”
