UTILITY Alliance’s growth plans have continued with the creation of five new teams of homeworkers following the phased return to normality after COVID-19.
A large proportion of the workforce were able to work from home after the Government were forced to implement lockdown back in March.
While many businesses sadly struggled to stay afloat during those unprecedented times, Utility Alliance flourished and continued to perform well under difficult circumstances.
Even though the vast majority of staff across sites in Hartlepool, Sheffield and Newcastle have now returned to their normal working environment, the directors at UA have given the go-ahead for five new teams to be created where new employees will work from home across the UK.
Each team will be made up of 10 sales staff, and will be managed from either Hartlepool, Sheffield or Newcastle.
The first two teams have been filled after positions were advertised across the UK, and UA is delighted to announce they will be managed by Ryan Prest and Adam Howe.
Ryan has been with the company since last summer, while Adam joined Utility Alliance in 2018. Both started as Lead Generators and have quickly progressed through the business.
Both will start their positions in the next few weeks.
Ryan said: “I’ve been in the energy industry for 10 years in various management roles, and I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to progress within the business.”
Adam said: “I’m excited by the challenges ahead, it’s a new of working. I’ve been working from home myself throughout lockdown, so I know exactly how I want the team to operate.”
Darren Sutherland, Chief Executive at Utility Alliance, said: “We are delighted to have been able to create the roles of Team Managers for Ryan and Adam, and it is fantastic to show that there is a genuine opportunity of career progression within the business for staff who have been with us in other roles.
“Homeworking was something that worked really well for us during the period of lockdown, and as we return to some form of normality we are confident these new teams will help us to make further progress.
“To have two teams and a manager for each of them already in place is testament to the work carried out by our Recruitment team, and we look forward to welcoming the next three teams over the coming weeks.”
