Growth continues as Signum FM announces new appointments
A South Yorkshire facilities management business is continuing its rapid expansion after appointing two new team members.
Signum Facilities Management, based in Doncaster, has appointed Ryan Daines as an engineer and Richard Precious to the role of maintenance coordinator.
The award-winning business, which specialises in managing and delivering building maintenance, now has 10 permanent employees and two temporary staff set to become permanent in the coming months.
Signum FM is also working with Doncaster College to recruit an apprentice and an additional electrician. By the start of next year, the company expects to have doubled staff numbers from the start of 2022.
Ryan, 29, from Armthorpe in Doncaster, completed a carpentry apprenticeship before working for the prison service as an officer and then joiner.
As a multi-skilled engineer, his role includes carrying out minor repairs, remedial work and installations across plumbing, joinery, electrical and painting.
Ryan said: “The thing I enjoy most about working for Signum FM is the team spirit we have between management and engineers. Signum stands apart from the crowd because they make you feel you’re not just a number and that you’re part of a team.
“Signum has also invested a great deal of time and resources into developing my skills with training and courses which have been some of the best courses I have been on. I want to say thank you to Signum for the opportunities they have given me and I look forward to continuing my development and enhancing my skillset.”
Richard, 49, from Sheffield, previously worked in a maintenance and health and safety role for 12 years. He subsequently worked as a fabricator making and installing infrared gas burners across the UK.
As maintenance coordinator, he will be based at the Sheffield office of Signum client Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, responsible for solving any machinery or facilities issues.
Richard said: “I enjoy working for Signum because they are one big family and they really do care about you and want you to progress and learn new skills.
“I enjoy working in facilities management because you are doing something different every day and you are always learning something new.”
The new appointments come after Signum recently secured new clients including National Horseracing College (formerly Northern Racing College) and KP Snacks.
Jill Wood, managing director of Signum FM, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Ryan and Richard to the Signum FM family.
“They join at an exciting time for the business. We have seen a 40% growth in turnover in the past 18 months and are also really proud of the strong culture we have nurtured in the company.
“We are continuing on that upward trend and need to recruit now to ensure we have the capacity and right people to keep delivering the highest standards for clients.
“We have some exciting projects coming up over the next six months and a real desire to push our growth plan forward which will see further key appointments.”
