Five rising industry stars boost Recom Solutions' team

"Bringing through new talent and developing them to our working practices and culture is a major part of our strategy, as we look to take Recom to the next level"
Jason McKnight

Recom Solutions has recruited five trainees as the construction project management specialist continues to expand its team in line with its rapid growth.

The latest arrivals take staff numbers at Trafford Park-based Recom to 25.

Phoebe Shore and Cairn Lees have joined Recom as trainee project managers. Phoebe is undertaking a degree in construction project management and Cairn has an MSc in architecture.

Ryan Taylor, Liam Dinsdale and Maia Webster have been recruited as trainee construction project managers.

Ryan graduated in construction project management at the University of Salford earlier this year. Liam and Maia are studying for the same degree as sponsored undergraduates.

Recom, which was founded in 2015 by directors Jason McKnight and Joseph Dillon, undertakes construction project management and main contracting work across a range of sectors, including healthcare, education, retail and leisure, commercial and residential.

It also provides consultancy services to assist in the delivery of projects. These services include design, risk, quality, health and safety and sustainability alongside passive fire.

Recom is the main contractor for a new £5m Hindu Temple in Oldham, where work is under way. Other Recom clients include Barry’s Bootcamp, Timpson, Pot Kettle Black, Urban Village Bars, KAMPUS, Multiply, the University of Manchester and the NHS.

Jason said: “Having developed our own careers from a sponsored background, Joseph and I feel it is essential to provide opportunities for talented and ambitious young professionals.

“All five newcomers are extremely capable and are gaining hands-on experience in a fast-paced environment.

“They have already shown they are rising industry stars, and indeed some are managing projects with other members of the team.

“Bringing through new talent and developing them to our working practices and culture is a major part of our strategy, as we look to take Recom to the next level.”

Recom recently created three new senior roles as it positions for its next phase of growth.

Jordan Stent was promoted to head of construction. James Holmes and Mike Kelly joined the firm as head of operations and head of the passive fire division respectively.

Jason said further recruitment is planned, with new roles for construction project managers, passive fire surveyors and passive fire installers.
