Daisy aims to take on 700 new staff

Communications provider Daisy Group is on a massive recruitment drive which could see it take on another 700 staff, bringing its total head count to around 2,000 employees.

The recruitment drive kicks off with plans to take on 100 new staff in the next six months. This will be backed up by a recruitment day in July.

A spokeswoman said Daisy Group plans to recruit a further 600 staff after the initial drive but declined to say when.

The new staff will be housed in refurbished premises located next to Daisy Group's headquarters in Nelson, Lancashire.

Daisy’s COO Gareth Kirkwood said: 'The fact that our headquarters in Nelson are now full to capacity demonstrates the level of growth the company has achieved since we moved to Daisy House with less than 100 staff in 2005.

'While many businesses are currently feeling economic strain, Daisy is going from strength to strength and is looking forward to investing more time and money into growing the business even further in terms of both staff and customers. In order to accommodate this growth we recognise the importance of investing in our systems and facilities.'

Daisy Group, which supplies supplies voice, mobile, data and systems, has more than 75,000 customers and 1,400 employees nationwide.

The Group currently houses more than 400 employees at its head office in Nelson. The recent move of 90 people from the recently acquired SpiriTel in Wigan brought the Nelson HQ to full capacity.

The latest plan for expansion comes just 12 months after the opening of a new building at the existing office in Nelson.

Some employees are expected to move into the former Rostron’s premises within the next few months.

Gareth added: 'One of the many reasons for expanding our Nelson base is to make room for the employees we have gained through acquisitions. However, the extra space in the new building will also mean there will be a particular focus on recruiting more staff to see us through this period of extreme growth.'
