Redundant workers encouraged to consider relocation to Utility Alliance Yorkshire

21 February, 2019

UTILITY Alliance has some attractive relocation packages on offer for any staff affected by the sudden closure of a rival business.

Utilitywise, based in North Tyneside, went into administration earlier this month resulting in hundreds of jobs being lost.

Many of the staff who were made redundant have quickly secured roles with Utility Alliance after successful interviews, while some of our neighbouring businesses in the same sector have also recruited to boost their own numbers.

A large number of positions created by Utility Alliance have been filled in our Hartlepool headquarters as well as our branch in Newcastle, but there are also opportunities to gain employment in our Sheffield office.

The office, which was opened in 2016, operates under the banner of Utility Alliance Yorkshire and has proved to be a successful operation targeting businesses in South Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.

The office is based in Tinsley, just off the M1 and a short distance from the popular Meadowhall shopping complex.

Sheffield is seen as one of the UK’s most vibrant areas, with a strong student community brought on by the two universities and lots of exciting plans in place from the local authority for further regeneration.

Dan Potter, Managing Director of Utility Alliance Yorkshire, relocated from Newcastle to take on his current role and is encouraging others to follow in his footsteps.

Dan said: “As my fellow directors said last week, it is never nice to hear of so many people losing their jobs as a result of a business going into administration.

“It has been pleasing to see so many of the staff who were made redundant quickly securing new positions, many not just with Utility Alliance but with many of the other firms who operate within our sector. Many of the people I know personally so it was pleasing to read people getting back to work quickly.

“While there are still positions available in our Hartlepool and Newcastle offices, I would also like to make people aware that we have a constant recruitment drive at our base here in Sheffield. Given I know many of the people who are impacted I would be really keen to try and help get some really talented people down to Sheffield

“I made the move here back in 2017, and I haven’t regretted it. It is a vibrant area in which to work and live, and I would encourage anyone who has been considering to make a move to get in touch with us.”

Lead Generator and Energy Consultant roles are available in Sheffield, and there is also a vacancy for a Recruitment Resourcer.
