Here at Concept Resourcing, we know that Projects Services is a rapidly growing industry - and that there is a real shortage of people skilled in this area. So when the pandemic hit in 2019 / 2020, it had a significant impact on the Project Services industry as the UK went into lockdown and the need for engineers declined.
The past year has been a year of recovery and stability. Trying to get back to the original levels of what we were two years ago. Being a leading specialist in the market, we set out a clear plan and goals to guide us back to success. We have had a year of upward progression within our Projects team. Having this precise set of aims has meant we have increased our number of engineers by 48.6% to circa 743 engineers; across upgrade, deployment and break-fix projects across the UK.
In the last 12 months, we have grown our team, clients have had increased 1-2-1 support, and we refined our processes and procedures to be better equipped with the market shift caused by the pandemic. We wanted to be on the ball (so to speak) when dealing with our clients and candidates. So, we have made sure our response time is under 24 hours to respond quickly to any queries or issues sent our way.
In 2021, we delivered 115,000 engineer days and provided 234 vans to our engineers. We increased our engineer days (days when our engineers are working) by 53.3% from 2020 to 2021 (from 75,000 to 115,000). This growth has been tremendous, and we hope for continued growth in 2022.
