With 25 years of industry experience working with clients in the UK and abroad, Paul Goodchild (45) has been appointed as head of industrial services. Bringing his extensive knowledge of the sector to the company, Paul will develop the industrial business at ORB and maximise new opportunities for supply.
Lauren Renwick (24), who has a background in the rail sector, as well as previously working as a consultant in a construction agency, joins the firm’s growing construction department as a recruitment consultant.
New trainee consultant Lucy Colbourne (38), from Doncaster, is also among the new faces at ORB, harnessing her experience in private and public health care.
The recruitment of the three new team members takes the total number of staff at the company to 11, and comes off the back of a busy period for ORB. The firm has continued to supply key workers into the healthcare sector throughout the coronavirus pandemic, as well as working with the manufacturing and production, construction and engineering industries.
Stewart Olsen, managing director of ORB Recruitment, said: “During 2019/20, which was only our second year of business, we have seen a 100 percent increase in turnover – rising from £1m in 2018/19 to £2m. Forecasts for the next year are also expecting to increase even further and are currently tracking towards £6m turnover, so despite the obvious challenges we have faced as a business over recent months we’ve worked incredibly hard to navigate through those and this work is paying off.
“We are in a position to continue with our growth plans which includes expanding the services offered into other sectors and industries as well as building our team and welcoming Paul, Lauren and Lucy has been one of the important steps in that process. All of our team members bring a wealth of varied experience and we’re excited to welcome them to the ORB team.”
