eResponse Group announces merger with Droitwich training specialist
eResponse, which has branches across the Midlands, has announced the completion of an undisclosed deal with Droitwich-based Train2Succeed.
Founded in 2006, Train2Succeed has built an admired reputation providing expert training, recruitment support and qualifications for people looking to work in care homes and social care.
The business employs a team of six and is now part of the Care Training Division of Options, eResponse Group’s specialist training arm. Claire Stokes, office manager at Train2Succeed, will also join the Options management board.
Melissa Ralphs, regional business development manager of Options, said: “Train2Succeed has created a superb niche for itself in the care home and social care training sector. The standing they have is underlined by the large number of care home groups who put their faith in the team to deliver their training or help fill vital job vacancies.
“We are delighted to welcome Claire and the team to Options and eResponse. We hold similar values and morals so we know they will be a perfect fit into the business as we continue to expand the training we can offer here in Worcestershire and across the UK.”
Claire Stokes added: “eResponse Group is widely admired and we are delighted to be joining such an innovative, successful business.
“For almost 10 years we have delivered successful training programmes for the care industry and now as part of eResponse, we can take that to another level with access to the Group’s extensive training facilities and their experienced team of assessors. We will also be able to offer new training for apprentices as part of the move which will only improve our services to clients.”
Formed in 2003, eResponse Group has grown to employ over 100 people at its branches in Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. Last year the Group was placed at number 44 in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 and was voted one of the UK’s top employers.
The award-winning business has seven recruitment branches and training centres which are spread across Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. They are in Redditch, Worcester, Kidderminster, Coventry, Rugby and Northampton.
