Growing HR Team to Support a Major Recruitment Drive
We're pleased to announce that we have added a new face to our growing HR department, in order to support a recent, major recruitment drive. We have increased staff levels by 100% since 2019, with plans to expand our workforce by an additional 250-300 people (60-70%) in 2021.
Already with upwards of 420 staff across our network of 65 bathroom showrooms, warehouse teams and our 110,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Batley, we have appointed Emma Gill as HR administrator, to support HR advisor, Heather Clark-Coates with recruitment and employee policies.
With experience in hospitality and HR, Emma was chosen from a pool of 156 candidates.
Commenting on Emma’s appointment, Heather said: “During a short period of time, Emma has exhibited a great level of care, attention and focus – making her a great addition to our small but formidable HR team. She has hit the ground running and already proven herself.
“2020 has been a pivotal year at Easy Bathrooms, having opened 23 showrooms during a global pandemic, whilst doubling our workforce. We’re gearing up for a strong 2021 and having the right team in place is incredibly important.”
Earlier this week, we were named on the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table – an independent list of UK private companies with the fastest-growing sales over three years. From 2016 to 2019, we grew our sales by an average of 50% to £33.3m. In 2020, sales grew to upwards of £45m.
Speaking of her new role, Emma said: “Easy Bathrooms has been an exciting company to join, during a period of rapid growth – it is the perfect training ground for a huge range of human resources topics and I’m very much looking forward to my future here.”
