Over the last 12 months, Shed has experienced a period of unprecedented, rapid growth.
During this time, we have won multiple new contracts: both expanding our arrangements with existing clients and providing our services to new.
To help us manage this additional workload and to ensure we continue to deliver the high service levels we have become known for, we’ve needed to expand our office team.
In the past 6 months we have taken on a new Accounts Administrator, a Marketing Assistant and a Business Administrator Apprentice. We have also restructured our business promoting a team member to Operations Manager to support the Managing Director.
Tricia Austin is our new Accounts Administrator and overseeing our accounting processes and keeping the finances in check. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the team, and her expertise in the areas of finance administration and business systemisation have already proven to be invaluable.
Josephine Walbank has taken on the role of Marketing Assistant, creating social posts, company updates and other marketing materials. Josephine is a freelance marketing consultant who has worked with a wide range of clients, across the UK and beyond.
And the last (but by no means least) addition to our office is Emma Delaney, the latest Apprentice to join team Shed. As our Business Administrator Apprentice, Emma is developing her skills to help manage the day-to-day office tasks. She provides customers with direct support both by email and telephone, ensuring their queries are met promptly.
Alongside adding this new talent to our team, Craig Clapperton has recently been promoted to Operations Manager. As part of this new role, Craig will be coordinating the operational side of the business. His role involves working with Dan Booth, Operations Supervisor to manage our operations team and coordinate visit schedules, and to complete site audits to ensure our team are delivery the quality we expect. He will also be liaising with clients for contract reviews and coordinating any projects they may require.
Peter Botham, Shed’s Managing Director, welcomes in the new recruits and expresses his hopes for Shed’s exciting future:
“We’re proud to have so many talented individuals join our office team. For us, this expansion is key to our ongoing company growth, and the aspirations that we have for the near future.
It is vital for us to always plan and ensure we can provide the right infrastructure to support our teams, so that they continue to deliver a great service to our clients. It’s proving to be an exciting time for Shed and we are looking forward to the journey ahead.”
This expansion, and the variety of skills that everyone brings to the team, will set Shed up to meet our increasing customer demands, and continue this exciting growth into the future.
