PROjEN, the award winning Project Management Company based at Northwich, Cheshire, has just announced its biggest 18 month growth in personnel since the company was formed in 1978.
Since April 2005, the number of employees at PROjEN has risen by nearly 65% as the company responds to an unprecedented growth in new client wins and increased orders from existing customers. In April 2005, PROjEN employed a total of 52 full time staff; and a year later this had risen to 71. Following further successes and recent recruitment the numbers have grown to 85 at the end of 2006
The company’s growth has been further fuelled by the recent launch of a range of energy management services tailored to large industrial clients. This has generated a huge amount of interest from existing industrial and manufacturing clients as well as a number of enquiries from new businesses not currently working with PROjEN.
PROjEN’s growth is set to continue and the order books are filling up for 2007 and beyond. To ensure the calibre and number of new recruits can be maintained into the New Year, PROjEN will be launching a bespoke recruitment database product on the company’s existing website which will enable people across all disciplines to apply for current vacancies and register details for future positions. The database will have a number of search functions enabling the company to match positions to individuals with specific skills and attributes instantaneously ensuring future employees can be notified of appropriate vacancies the moment they come available. People interested in registering on the PROjEN database are invited to send their current CV to PROjEN or register their details via the current recruitment section of the website.
This announcement in personnel growth comes “hot on the heels” of the launch of PROjEN’s graduate recruitment programme and the first two graduate trainees, Liang Liu and Adam Ingram
John Taylor, Managing Director at PROjEN said,
“We have experienced significant growth over the last 3 years which is a result of our performance, product offering and the work ethic of our people. Although not as big as some in the industry, we are well known and this has helped in our successful recruitment to date. As the pace of our growth gathers speed in the New Year we are having to widen our “net” if we are to recruit the best people. We are looking forward to the website upgrade which will help us to build a fantastic resource for future recruitment”
