(PRWEB UK) 14 November 2013
In June the company announced the creation of 50 new jobs in the first half of the year and with the business continuing to grow at a remarkable rate, a further 50 staff will have been employed by the end of December with a new recruitment drive already underway to take the company into 2014.
Jo Barlow Head of Human Resources at Moneypenny explains: “We have had a very busy year so far in 2013 as we work to keep pace with the growth of the business. We make sure our recruitment is always one step ahead and ‘overstaff’ to ensure we never compromise on the quality of our service as our client numbers grow. Our clients have their own dedicated receptionists who work in teams of four so it is a straight-forward model to replicate once we have the right people in place although our lengthy training process means it is usually around six months before a new recruit is allocated clients of their own.
“We very much recruit on attitude and personality and are always looking for positive, ‘can-do’ people to bring their own energy to our teams as this is more important to us than particular qualifications.”
Moneypenny Managing Director Glenn Jackson comments: “As the year has progressed we have continued to experience tremendous growth across all areas of the business with a noticeable increase in the numbers of large firms approaching us for telephone call overflow or fully outsourced reception support. Our dedicated legal, estate agency and retail teams are also expanding and we are seeing an increase in the numbers of businesses requiring round the clock support which is resulting in us sending more of our experienced PAs over to New Zealand to deal with those calls during their daytime.
“Earlier this year we launched a new product, Penelope, a technology call-answering solution for micro and small businesses and this has also had a positive effect on our business as we continue to work hard to provide flexible cost-effective working solutions for businesses of all shapes and sizes. We are expecting to see a similar rate of recruitment through 2014.”
