Dan is Flying High At Transline

Dan is Flying High At Transline

Derby-born recruitment specialist Dan Carlin has been appointed Group Sales Manager for the Transline Group - one of the UK’s leading industrial and driving recruitment agencies.

Dan’s national UK role – which also includes responsibility for the Group’s European and Canadian interests – will be based at its Brighouse head office in Yorkshire and at Nuneaton in Warwickshire.

And away from his new job, Dan is also & lsquo;flying high’ by taking to the skies to obtain a private pilot’s licence.

Transline was named & lsquo;Most Outstanding Outsourced Recruitment Organisation’ in last year’s industry awards, is currently UK’s fastest growing recruitment company in its sector and has reported its fifth successive year of double digit growth with sales in 2012 of over &pound70 million.

The company was set up by Managing Directors Paul Beasley and Jon Taylor, starting from a single office in Halifax, Yorkshire, in 1998 and now runs a 60-site UK-wide network as well as having operations in Ireland, Eastern Europe, Spain and, recently, Canada.

Dan, who reports direct to Group Sales Director Danny Hobbs and managing directors Paul Beasley and Jon Taylor, will create business sales opportunities in new sectors to increase Transline’s market share.

“Transline is set to achieve a &pound150 million turnover within five years,” says Dan. “Not only do I like where they are going but, more importantly for me, I like how they want to get there and I want to build the sales team to take the Group to this level and beyond. I know I can develop opportunities and revenue that will help to move this business in the right direction.”

Dan Carlin was born and raised in Derby where he still lives. He joins The Transline Group from Blue Arrow where he was Business Development Manager for the national sales team with a special responsibility for winning new business in the retail and logistics sector.

“Dan has an in-depth knowledge of our industry, a tenacious attitude and a proven track record of securing the correct type of business,” says The Transline Group’s Managing Director Jon Taylor.

“Our rate of UK and overseas expansion is presenting us with a challenging time and we need experienced people of Dan’s calibre to provide the back-up we need. Typically, in our industry, Dan has watched the way we have grown and the direction we want to take and he shares our vision. In return, we look forward to working with him. ”

Outside of work, Dan is building his flying hours towards his own private pilot’s licence. Training in a Cessna aircraft, out of East Midlands airport, he has already reached the stage of & lsquo;flying solo’ and is steadily putting in the requisite number of flights, coupled with study on navigation and meteorology,  in the hope of achieving his goal within the next 18 months or so.
