Careers specialist Frontline Recruitment is gearing up for growth by promoting David Essam to General Manager of the company’s Industrial Division.

The promotion comes at a time of substantial growth for Frontline, which saw a 23% uplift in new client sign-ups in the first three months of 2016, with like-for-like sales growth of 21% over the same period.

David joined Frontline in 2007 as a Business Development Executive and has worked his way up through the ranks – first as an Assistant Manager, Business Manager and Regional Operations Manager before taking on the role of General Manager for Frontline’s rapidly expanding Industrial Division.

In his new role, David will oversee the smooth running of the Industrial Division in Frontline’s Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Mansfield offices as well as all current onsite contracts.

David said: “It’s a real honour to take on this new role for Frontline. The company is growing quickly, which makes it an exciting time to make the step up.

“My goal is the same as Frontline’s; to offer something different and unique and to give our clients the best possible honest service.

“I look forward to working with clients and candidates old and new as we enter the next phase of the Frontline growth strategy.”

Tony Wilmot, director of Frontline Recruitment, added: “David’s promotion is very well-earned. He has a proven track record of supplying staff to various contracts from one worker up to 1,000 workers per day and has consistently demonstrated a high level of service to ensure we achieve and exceed client expectations.

“I’m sure that, with David’s help, Frontline will reach its growth potential as we enter this new phase for the company and I’d urge anyone with urgent staffing needs to get in touch with him.”

Frontline Recruitment has offices in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Mansfield, Hull and Weymouth.
