As growth continues at leading technical and engineering recruitment specialists Sierra 57, the company announces both a new Business Development Manager and a very attractive 4% recruitment plan for customers.
Josie Pike joins Sierra 57 to support not only the demand the recruitment company has seen escalate over the last nine months but also a brand new initiative to assist customers. With 275 new UK customers and over 400 in Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy and the USA, the technical and engineering recruitment division business is going from strength to strength.
Josie will be operating from Sierra 57’s Manchester satellite location and joins the team with a breadth of technical manufacturing and engineering recruitment experience.
A commercially astute and diligent recruitment professional with a “can do, will do” attitude and an appetite for learning about the latest automation and LEAN processes/tools, Josie is the perfect fit for Sierra 57’s UK recruitment division.
Already successful in recruiting for several key manufacturers in Northern UK territories, she has familiarity within the plastics, life science, paper and packaging, precision engineering and oil and gas markets. In addition, her injection moulding training courses with FANUC, Arburg, SDUK and Talisman Plastics will well equip her for delivering UK customer’s expectations for matching the right technical staff.
Coming from an engineering family, Josie is following in her father and godfather’s footsteps, who are both in senior positions within plastics manufacturing and robotics automation, as a credible professional within the engineering markets.
Mark Lawson, Managing Director of Sierra 57 comments:
“We will be utilising Josie’s strengths in building new business inroads and continuing her own formidable relations with established clients, with whom she has already been dedicating her time. This is a fantastic appointment for the Sierra 57 team.”
In further news, Sierra 57 is moving to help its customers save costs and support their succession planning and business cash flow. A valuable new benefit is being introduced to customers: 12 months rebate of a candidate like-for-like replacement for as little as 4%.
Mark Lawson explains:
“This is a great safety net and an insurance policy that is a minimal charge, replacing a full recruitment fee. This can apply to any customer’s staff headcount regardless of whether Sierra 57 has recruited the individual or not.”
