Addlestone, Surrey-based Technical Resources has announced the appointment of David Bowles as a full Company Director following his purchase of a 15 per cent stake in the recruitment agency, which specialises in serving the telecoms, IT, fire and security, mechanical and electrical sectors.
David advances to the new role after starting with the company as an apprentice 12 years ago, and then steadily working towards the position of operations director – a job he has held for the past four years.
Alan Derry, Managing Director at Technical Resources comments:
“We’re delighted with David’s promotion. It’s very well-deserved and demonstrates our commitment to training and advancing members of our own team. His personal investment in the organisation illustrates a secure and long-term future for Technical Resources.
“David will continue working on our HR strategy, which is focused on building a team of additional directors and senior managers, offering opportunities for everyone within the business to progress.”
Plans to continue developing the company’s staff comes at a time when demand for skilled technical employees is reaching an all-time high. According to Tech Nation’s ‘Jobs & Skills Report 2021,’ following a rebound from COVID-19, tech jobs demand is 42% higher than at the same time in 2019.
David Bowles adds:
“I’m thrilled to be committing to continuing my career with Technical Resources. It’s great to be part of a company who are committed to constant improvement in everything we do. The key to our success is the close work we do with our candidates and clients and our commitment to providing a world class service to both.
“When an employee is placed we continue to keep in touch with both parties and support their progress. This is of particular value given the uncertainty faced by so many people and businesses over the last 24 months of COVID-19 disruption.”
