MEP specialist HE Simm has taken on six apprentices and 10 further staff as it continues to expand its operations across the UK.
The Liverpool-headquartered firm, which operates in sectors including commercial, residential, education, retail, health care and leisure, is committed to developing a new generation of talented young electricians, plumbers and engineers.
HE Simm has recruited a raft of new MEPH (Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health) estimators, project managers, engineers and supervisors.
Managing director Gareth Simm said the company is enjoying sustained year-on-year growth which has led to new opportunities across the business: “We are delighted to be creating 16 new jobs including the six Apprenticeships. We will be working closely with Ciaran, Luke, Jake,Cian, Neil and Christian to nurture their skills, develop long-term goals and give them a strong platform to succeed within the business. We already have two apprentices working at HE Simm – Ian Ewan and Cameron Marshall – and truly understand the benefits apprentices can bring.
“Our business model has always been about selecting the right clients, the right schemes to price and the right supply chain to support us, whilst investing in skills and training so we have the right people to manage and lead our projects and business.
“It is essential to have a robust business plan that identifies and delivers short and medium-term success and also keeps a strong focus on the long-term future of the company. Aside from the apprentices, we are investing in a group of experienced and knowledgeable industry experts.”
HE Simm is set to launch an innovative Building Information Modelling (BIM) design studio this month as part of a drive to improve collaboration, raise performance and reduce project man hours.
The £60,000 studio will bring together engineers, architects and designers from HE Simm and stakeholders in one shared facility, and will be kitted out with the latest BIM technology, including the market-leading Revit software.
