gap personnel officially open new regional HQ for Midlands
Situated at Suite 4, 2nd Floor, Church House, Old Hall Street, Hanley, the new premises will house the new invigorated Stoke branch team, which includes new branch manager Lucy Emery and new regional business development manager Becky Jones, who will be joined in the next few weeks by a new senior consultant, a sales consultant and an apprentice.
The new offices will also be the principal base for the ever expanding, specialist managed solutions division, gap Onsite, and will be used for all Midlands training activity as well as being a central meeting and working facility for gap’s other regions.
Founded in 1997, by CEO Gary Dewhurst, and now with a headcount of 212 and over 7,000 workers, the privately-owned company has undergone dramatic growth over the past two years and is now one of the UK’s Top 3 independent labour providers offering temporary and permanent workforce solutions to organisations in sectors including automotive, manufacturing, warehouse and distribution, transport and logistics, waste management, recycling and food production.
Paul Hipkiss, regional director, Midlands, said: “I was delighted to welcome some of our clients and the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent to the official opening of our fabulous new offices in Hanley.
We chose Stoke-on-Trent, for our hub, as it is centrally located to serve our current Midlands operations and will position us, perfectly, with our further plans for expansion and development, into the East Midlands area, over the next three years.
Stoke also offers a real affinity with our own business - a solid foundation in industry and manufacturing, as well as continued and sustainable investment in employment.”
