Four new appointments at a Scunthorpe-based IT Software & Service provider HBP Systems have seen the company grow in strength and size the second time this year as it continues to meet demand for IT services to the local area.
This latest move to expand their workforce is part of a continued focus by the company, to actively promote their new vision of ‘Best Today, Better Tomorrow’, which will see numerous, forward-thinking changes across the business as they strive to be the best IT & Software provider locally.
Josh Bawn – Telemarketer, Georgina Birley - PA to the company’s Directors, Josh Wellham - Order Processing, and Gary Butler – Purchase Ledger, bring the number of employees at HBP Systems to well over 60.
The company, who believe strongly in investing in and nurturing local talent, are taking this opportunity to build on the knowledge and specialist talents within the company as the demand for essential services continues to increase in the local area.
As the second round of new employments this year, HBP believe this latest move to grow their company will continue to drive forward technological development in the local area and will help make Scunthorpe an advanced, contemporary area for business development.
These appointments come after the company employed 5 members of staff in January, where HBP brought on more staff to expand both their marketing and software support teams.
HBP Systems are also celebrating a number of milestones in longevity for long-serving members of staff.
Tim Pritchard, the companies Graphic Designer and Andrea Smith, HR Admin and Payroll, are both celebrating their 11th year at HBP. Tim said: “You’d struggle to find another company in this area with the same transparency, drive and commitment to diversify within the industry. Part of what makes me want to stay is the way that we’re always pushing forward.”
Long-serving employees are equally important to HBP Systems as developing the fresh talent they employ as the company feels their expertise and experience helps to continually push forward their within the industry.
The new appointments at HBP feature a new member of the telemarketing team, Joshua Bawn who specialises in internal business development and will be contacting prospective clients on behalf of HBP Group.
This new role will help to broaden the company’s interactions and communications within the local area and work in engaging prospective clients through various traditional platforms.
HBP have also appointed a new PA to the company’s Directors. Georgina Birley is responsible for managing further employment at the company as well as a number of other essential duties throughout the business.
Her employment further contributes to HBP’s intention of refining the way company works and operates internally to provide a better customer experience to its growing local client base.
Georgina said: “HBP are a great company to work for, there’s a fantastic environment here where all the staff are passionate about the job and the customers; it really encourages you to excel. The job has allowed me to take a huge step in my career and I’m already achieving the type of progression I’ve wanted for a very long time.”
Managing Director of HBP, Joanne Dixon commented: “Investing in the number of people we employ is key to our growth as a business and the quality of service we provide as we work with more clients. We have continued to invest in local talents who have the knowledge and experience to help drive our business forward and support local organisations.”
