Huddersfield-based work at height specialist Access North has almost doubled its headcount in recent months, making three new business appointments following several new business wins.
Working from Access North’s HQ at Brooke’s Mill in Armitage Bridge, the number of office team members has grown from five to eight as a result of this latest recruitment drive.
Danielle Lohan has joined the team as operations coordinator, working alongside senior operations manager Richard Knight and facilities and operations manager Diane Basnett. Danielle will streamline the internal logistics and procurement processes, with a focus on developing strong supplier relationships.
Rachael Howard is the specialist’s second appointment and has come on board as a project assistant, working alongside the project engineer. With a wealth of management-level experience, Rachael has previously worked in the rail and construction industries. Her duties will include procurement, prospecting, health and safety, customer relations and project planning.
A further appointment sees Matthew Wilson joining the growing team as a project engineer. Coming from a new-build background, Matthew is well-versed in ETFE, glass, steel and construction. He brings plenty of international experience with him to his new full-time role.
With some incredibly exciting new projects and challenges for Access North on the agenda over the coming months, it was imperative that the right people were in place to fulfil rising demands for the company’s specialist services. Managing director Berenice Northcott explained:
“Once it became clear we needed another pair of hands in the office, we took a step back as a team and thought about what the company required. We interviewed Danielle and Rachael for the same position, and we were so impressed by each of them that we decided to create a role for them both. Luckily, we had just won a big new contract and could justify the expansion!
“As we continue to grow, we’re constantly on the lookout for great people who fit with our ethos and attitude. We’re delighted to have our three new faces on board for this next chapter.”
