Liverpool-based energy and construction company Ecogee has recruited more than 30 people to its team.
The company has recorded an increased turnover of £9.5m up from £6.7m 12 months ago, due to a rise in its energy grant and decarbonisation division.
It has hired additional contract managers, site supervisors, quantity surveyors and tradespersons to undertake the work, which is currently taking place across the region.
Managing director Brendan Helm said: “This is a huge accomplishment. Not only for us as a business, but as part of a conscious society. Our successes in terms of company growth and increased staff recruitment highlight that there is now a national drive towards reducing fuel costs and tackling our carbon footprint.”
One of the new starters welcomed to the team is operations manager Maria O’Connor, who has more than a decade of experience within both energy and construction led industries and will lead the implementation of all aspects of operations. This includes the business’ four main pillars – new builds, social housing, government eco grants and external wall insulation.
Alongside O’Connor, Ecogee has also employed three operatives from Thorn Cross Prison in Warrington, which it continues to build up a long-standing relationship with.
One individual from the men’s open prison and young offender institution has recently become a full-time supervisor for the Aintree business, after completing a ten-month programme following their release.
