ADVANCE strengthens leadership team
ADVANCE has appointed Andrew Coates as group finance director and promoted Anna Sills to the newly-created position of customer service & communications director.
They join managing directors Tim Hunt and Shaun Critchley on the ADVANCE senior management and strategy team.
Coates, a qualified FCCA accountant, who joins the company from Auctus Management Group, said, “I am familiar with ADVANCE through my time in the recruitment sector and have always admired the company’s focus on compliance and ethics.
“This is an exciting time to be joining and I’m looking forward to helping the company grow.
“In particular I want to ensure we continue to add to our rapidly-growing base of limited company contractor clients.”
Commenting on her new, broader role at ADVANCE, Sills said, “Changes in legislation mean 2016 will be a crucial year for the contractor and freelancer services sector.
“Our expertise in the area of supervision, direction or control (SDC) means we are ideally placed to help contractors and recruitment firms navigate the changes.
“I’m honoured to be given this wider remit at such an important stage in the ADVANCE story.”
