On a visit to the company’s £5m Isher Business Park head office to commend the impact alldayPA is having on the jobs market and local economy, he officially recognised the company’s dedication to driving local employment opportunities.
During the visit, the mayor also acknowledged the commitment of five of the business’ staff whom have been with the company for 10 – 14 years, presenting them with awards for outstanding dedication and contribution.
Salford-born Paul Williams, head of IT at alldayPA, has been with the company for 11 years and was among those to receive the awards.
The recent job creation is in addition to the on-going recruitment drive which started at the end of last year to add an additional 200 staff to the call centre operations. Local government stakeholders are now working closely with the company to help fulfil this and the new non call centre roles.
Ian Stewart, Salford City Mayor, said: “We are thrilled to count such a successful business that is so dedicated to creating local jobs for Salford people within the Salford city boundary.
“Many of the members of staff are local people who have helped to build the company from the ground up, and I am delighted that with the announcement of 230 additional jobs available at alldayPA, there will be even more opportunities for local people looking for employment to get involved.”
Stewart also met with some of the company’s newest recruits, who are currently undergoing the 12 week call handling and answering training programme all new call centre staff receive, and sat in on a training exercise in the Training Centre.
Reuben Singh, chief executive officer at alldayPA, said: “We are a proud Salford business, having been based here ever since our foundation 16 years ago – so we are delighted to have been officially recognised by the city mayor.
“We are heavily invested in contributing to the local economy and creating job opportunities for local Salford people, and are currently in discussions with Salford Council and the mayor’s office about how we can work together even more, to create further jobs and more partnerships.”
