The future looks bright for five recently employed staff at Chester-based commercial energy consultants, Power Solutions.
The energy efficient company has worked itself into a positive position in a time where many businesses are left to lick their financial post-recession wounds.
The company is on target for a 25% year-on-year growth in real terms and has employed five new recruits in less than three months. In a climate where unemployment figures are soaring, these five individuals have gone on to become part of the successful, ever expanding team based in the city centre.
Brokers Supporter, Nicola Lee, 26, from Hawarden says: “The atmosphere is totally different to anywhere I have worked before - everyone enjoys their working days!
“The people I work with are fantastic, we all get on and work so well together.”
Nicola has quickly taken to her role and was recognised as September’s employee of the month.
“Variation is the best part of my job role, not one day is the same. Coming to work now is a real pleasure.”
Newly employed Energy Broker, Darren Melvin, from Guilden Sutton recently took voluntary redundancy at his previous job where he worked for 15 years.
He says: “The role at Power Solutions is a complete career change for me and I’m really enjoying the new direction.
“It’s great to be part of such a successful team and I look forward a long future working with Power Solutions.”
Power Solutions Managing Director Jeremy Taylor says: “All five new employees bring something different to the company. I have been so impressed with the hard work and dedication the team members have shown.
“Our sales and administrative team is ever expanding. Once an employee hits their targets two months in a row we look to employ another two new sales members and one administrator.
“Businesses are looking to save money in this tough economic climate. The work we do here at Power Solutions enables us to help even the smallest of companies to reduce their utility bills and energy consumption.
“Chester is a thriving city for businesses and we’re look forward to an even more successful year of trade for 2012, in turn employing more individuals from the Cheshire area.”
