Chippenham-based independent recruitment firm, 24-7 Staffing has celebrated the tenth anniversary of its Salisbury branch manager, Shane Stevens.
Shane, whose background was originally in transport and warehousing, joined 24-7 Staffing in 2008, starting at the Chippenham head office.
In 2010 he took up the challenge of making a success of the Bristol office, which had not long been open, and in 2015 he relocated to head up the new Salisbury branch and has – according to 24-7 Staffing – made a “huge success” of that too.
The firm claims that Shane is the first of the 24-7 Staffing team, under its new rewards and recognition scheme, to reach the ten year anniversary. Company bosses Melody and Julian Thompson surprised him with a cake, balloons, party poppers and a ‘thank you’ cheque.
Shane said: “I knew something was happening but I didn’t know what and it was a total surprise. I really love working for 24-7 Staffing and in recruitment. No one day is the same, and I love the challenge of getting a project with perhaps a dozen vacancies that need filling and then achieving that goal. It’s a great feeling of job satisfaction.”
Melody, director of 24-7 Staffing described Shane is a “fantastic” branch manager.
She said: “From the moment he started with 24-7 Staffing he was a real asset to the business. He made a great success of our new Bristol branch and has done the same at our Salisbury office.”
In addition to this, Shane was recently “instrumental” in landing a new, four-year contract to supply industrial and driving staff to Test Valley Borough Council in Andover.
Shane, a father to two teenagers and lifelong Liverpool FC fan, added: “I loved making a success of the Bristol and then the Salisbury branches, so as and when 24-7 Staffing opens a new branch I’d love the challenge of setting that up.”
