RTS Wind Recruitment are pleased to announce our new partnership with Pearson Electrical. The framework agreement was brought to us by the work of Recruitment Manager Terry Bubb in our Hull office. We are excited to see what the future holds between ourselves and Pearson Electrical, bringing together the respective strengths of each organisation and enabling both to support future UK contracts.
This reciprocal personnel leasing cooperation agreement is one of three deals that Pearson Electrical, based in Pioneer Park, Clough Road, north Hull, has recently secured, resulting in a 25 per cent increase in its workforce – from 15 to 19 people – and boosting its annual turnover by 20 per cent.
The cooperation with RTS Wind Recruitment Limited, is a significant step for both parties, and will further enhance the combined service offering to the local and UK offshore sector.
Mark Pearson, managing director of Pearson Electrical, which three years ago was made up of just three employees, said: "Our company is growing at its fastest pace ever, thanks largely to our relationship with the Green Port Hull initiative, which has provided us with access to invaluable support, including help in securing unique industry-leading ISO accreditations.
"Given the size of the jobs we are now taking on, our average contracts team has also doubled in size, from five to ten engineers per initiative."
Terry Bubb, recruitment manager for RTS Wind Recruitment, said: "We're pleased to have entered into a reciprocal cooperation with Pearson.
"RTS Wind Recruitment is a subsidiary of RTS Wind Ltd, a leading provider of installation and maintenance services to key customers both in the onshore and offshore sector.
"The UK remains a key focus to RTS and we shall continue to invest in our operational organisation and forge new relationships with key partners.
"We look forward to working together with Pearson in providing high-quality and cost-effective services."
With an investment totalling about £26m, the Green Port Growth Programme, supported by the Regional Growth Fund, is designed to provide continual support to help local businesses recognise and embrace potential opportunities in the renewables sector.
The programme has been delivering support for employment and skills since 2012, with the aim of developing strength within the local engineering and manufacturing workforce.
