Independent Connections Provider Matrix Networks has made a positive start to the New Year with the launch of an online portal with recruitment partners Hays, and the promotion of several new vacancies.

The roles have been identified in support of the utility infrastructure specialist’s five year growth plan which was communicated to its existing employees before Christmas. They cover every discipline from design to estimating, provide opportunities for a range of experience levels, and are based out of the Company’s three locations across the UK.

Awarded a 2-star accreditation in the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ survey in 2019 for its ‘Outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement, Matrix Networks prides itself on providing opportunities for staff development. And, as a small business currently employing around 70 personnel, as more talented individuals are recruited it aims to continue this ethos.

Rob Sparkes, Matrix Networks Group CEO, said: “We’re about to embark on a period of significant growth and therefore need to attract more personnel in to the business who want to be part of that journey. We always look at the talent of our own people first and promote or reassign roles where there’s an opportunity, but as great as our people are, we haven’t got enough of them.

“We’re working with Hays because they have the skills and experience to deliver our recruitment programme at the pace we need. They’ve taken time to understand our business, understand our people are our most valuable asset, and know the calibre of individuals we need to help our Company achieve its full potential.”

Elisabetta Baylis, Hays Managing Director, added: “Matrix Networks is a well-established and respected name in the utility infrastructure industry and I’m pleased they’ve chosen to work with us, to help them find the right people to join their successful team.

“Matrix is also very much an employee-focussed business. Working with them, specifically over the past few months, I know they’re not only looking for candidates with specific experience, but with the right mindset as well. We’re excited to be part of their onward journey and look forward to meeting potential candidates.”

Over the next few months, more roles will be added to the online portal to see the ICP potentially increase its headcount by as much as 50 per cent by the Spring. This recruitment drive will be supported by structural changes within the business and the exploration of new market opportunities to further establish Matrix Network’s objective of being the utility infrastructure provider and employer of choice.
