This week Solvo Vir celebrated the accomplishments of twelve learners from one Cheshire firm.
A dozen recruitment consultants at Leap29 in Wilmslow recently passed Skills First diploma qualifications for which they studied alongside their day-to-day jobs. Solvo Vir has been working with Leap29 for several years helping the business, through specialist training and qualifications, to enhance the capabilities and improve the productivity of staff.
Leap29 is a global recruitment business providing permanent and contract solutions to a variety of organisations and industries including construction, Oil & Gas, engineering and IT. Based in Wilmslow’s Riverside Park, Leap29 has seven global offices and an annual turnover of £25m. Solvo Vir held a special presentation event for the successful learners on Thursday 24th May in Leap29’s offices close to Wilmslow town centre.
For Leap29, offering the chance to obtain industry qualifications is key part of its talent acquisition strategy. The firm’s Head of HR and Training, Andrea Mason said: “We strongly believe in investing in the professional development our colleagues. We have openings for recent graduates as well as experienced consultants so providing opportunities to gain industry-recognised qualifications is one way we hope to attract ambitious new people to our team.”
Ruth Maskrey is a trainer and assessor at Solvo Vir, who works with recruitment staff across the North West. Ruth said: “I am very proud to have worked with the team at Leap29. The staff who have undertaken the qualification have been interested in their own development and can see how the qualification will add value to their own and the company’s brand. They are a fantastic group of people who share their knowledge and support each other. It’s been a pleasure taking them through their qualification.”
Carl Smith, Solvo Vir’s Managing Director, added his congratulations, saying: “On behalf of the trainers and assessors at Solvo Vir I am delighted for the team at Leap29, who will use their new skills to further their careers within the business. It is ultimately very satisfying for us as a training provider to see learners achieve their goals.”
