Sierra 57 Consult has now been providing high-quality recruitment and advisory services to its customers and job seekers within the plastics, packaging and tooling industry for 12 months, as the company celebrates its first year in business.
Sierra 57 is a specialist recruiter and partner to leading industry groups PlastikCity, GTMA and PMMDA. As the team celebrates their first year, there have been some big changes at their new head office, located at the foot of the Malvern Hills in the Worcestershire countryside. Upon employment at Sierra 57, Mark Bargh and Maria Ledbury were new to plastics and recruitment. They have both had a successful start and have hit the ground running, with several candidate appointments in their first few months with the company.
Alongside this, Senior Consultant Katie Francis has been working with a variety of new businesses. One of her main achievements was resourcing and appointing several UK moulding professionals into an automotive first tier mould manufacturer in China.
Away from the office, Sierra 57 continue to champion fundraising efforts for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. They’re also investing in new resourcing tools, social media platforms, and training and empowerment of their staff; they feel a happy team are more productive in representing both customer and work seeker.
The last six months have seen all three recruitment consultants attend hands-on training in plastics and injection moulding with three of industry’s leading training bodies; SDUK, PTIC and RJG. Additionally, the company is looking to gain ISO9001 accreditation for recognition of its customer service and detailed-oriented applications. Katie Francis, Senior Recruitment Consultant, commented:
“Sierra 57 strives to deliver a simple, no-nonsense and effective recruitment solution to the best of our abilities. The company pushes boundaries whilst adhering to GDPR, IR35 and HMRC protocols.
“We would like to thank all of our clients and candidates that have supported us over the last 12 months. We’re now looking forward to a challenging and exciting year ahead of us, promoting UK manufacturing and automation, and catching up with industry professionals at Interplas and the Plastics Industry Awards.”
