Congratulations from all the team here at 24-7 Staffing to our fantastic Salisbury branch manager Shane Stevens.
Shane, whose background was in transport and warehousing, joined 24-7 Staffing in 2008, starting off in our Chippenham head office.
In 2010 he took up the challenge to build and make a success of our Bristol office, which had not long been open, and in 2015 he relocated to head up our new Salisbury branch and has made a huge success of that too.
Shane is the first of our team, under our new rewards and recognition scheme, to reach his ten year anniversary, so we enjoyed surprising him with a cake, balloons, party poppers and a thank you cheque.
“I knew something was happening but I didn’t know what and it was a total surprise,” said Shane. “I really love working for 24-7 Staffing and in recruitment. No one day is the same, and I love the challenge of getting a project with perhaps a dozen vacancies that need filling, and then achieving that goal. It’s a great feeling of job satisfaction.”
Shane was instrumental recently in landing our new contract to supply industrial and driving staff to Test Valley Borough Council. Here we are looking to fill vacancies for drivers and crew for the council’s fleet of vehicles, including bin lorries, street cleaners, bin loaders and grass cutters. The vacancies are in the Andover, Romsey and Eastleigh area.
Shane added: “That contract only started on 1st October and it is going really well.”
So what’s next for Shane, who’s a dad to two teenagers and a lifelong Liverpool FC fan?
“I loved making a success of the Bristol and then the Salisbury branches, so as and when 24-7 Staffing opens a new branch I’d love the challenge of setting that up.”
If you like the sound of a rewarding career in recruitment, or are interested in the Test Valley Council driving or industrial roles, please get in touch with the team at 24-7 Staffing.
