UA’s pledge to help redundant workers sparks a busy spell for recruitment team

15 February, 2019

OUR pledge to help out staff affected by the collapse of a Tyneside energy consultancy has proved to be a popular talking point over the last 24 hours.

Since news broke that hundreds of staff were being made redundant, our recruitment team have been inundated with calls from workers who are keen to join the ever-growing Utility Alliance team.

As our own expansion plan continues, many of the staff who have found themselves out of work have already secured interviews for positions in our Hartlepool, Newcastle and Sheffield offices.

Around 150 positions are available in roles including energy consultants, lead generators, team managers, field sales and closers.

Our guarantee to offer an interview to any staff now searching for new roles has been picked up by the local media, and has also been widely spread across social media platforms.

Ian Willis, PR and marketing manager at Utility Alliance, said: “We operate in a highly competitive sector and there is a lot of rivalry between businesses within it, but it’s never nice to hear that a company has gone into administration, especially with the loss of so many jobs.

“As a company Utility Alliance sympathises with all of the staff who have found themselves out of work.

“We fully understand the impact this will have on so many families.

“At Utility Alliance we have had a constant recruitment drive in place as our business has continued to grow over the last four years.

“That drive is continuing and given the circumstances with the collapse of the business, we are fully aware there are lots of talented staff who would be an asset to our business.

“In light of the news, we will guarantee an interview for anyone affected.

“We have in excess of 150 vacancies in a variety of positions within the business and would encourage applicants to get in touch.”
