Concepts Somerset branch celebrates double success

Concepts Somerset branch celebrates double success
The Taunton branch of the South Wests leading recruitment agency is celebrating after picking up two awards at the companys annual sales conference.
More than 40 people attended Concept Staffings conference at the City Gate Hotel in Exeter to acknowledge the companys top achievers. Taunton shone on the night with Janet Phillips winning Branch Manager of the Year and sales resourcer and trainee consultant Kelly Burne receiving the Most Improved Award.
Janet has more than 10 years experience working in the recruitment industry, becoming manager of the Taunton branch in 2004. She now holds the post of executive branch manager, with full responsibility for the Taunton, Bridgwater and surrounding areas. 
Janet said: The Branch Manager of the Year award has an extra special meaning to me for 2009, as this proved to be one of the toughest in my 11 year recruitment career because of the difficult economic climate we faced. 
It was a year of hard decisions and changes but my positive mental attitude and flexible approach proved that when it gets tougher you don't give up or become complacent you embrace new challenges and continue to strive for excellence and the results will speak for themselves.
 Kelly's award and mine is the ultimate icing on the cake helping to mark a year of financial success as well as recognising staff development.
Kelly, 23, from Burnham on Sea, has been with Concept Staffing for two and a half years.  Currently undergoing a Resourcer Development Programme, Kelly is aiming to become a consultant for Concepts commercial desk.
She said: The award is a major achievement which I am very proud of. I feel it is a benchmark of how hard I have worked for Concept and also shows the support I have behind me.
Janet added: I would like to say a special thank you to all our Somerset clients who have been a pleasure to work with.
Celebrating more than 20 years in business, Concept Staffing finds jobs for up to 1,000 people with more than 500 different clients each week. The company turns over 17 million annually and is part of the Acorn Group.
Karen Sharpin, Concepts divisional manager, said: Janet has made a massive impact on the company since joining six years ago, while Kelly is dedicated to expanding her role.
Id like to thank them both for their commitment over the past year and hope that 2010 is just as successful and prosperous.
