If you’re a Jointer of cables you better read this.
Last week, I had the pleasure to meet Duane Thompson (Founder & Managing Director) of Networked Professionals and learn how he and his team are quickly positioning their recruitment agency at the forefront of the Cable Jointing sector of the electricity industry.
In the following Post we introduce this innovative recruitment agency dedicated to placing and supporting Jointers (LV MV HV) with payment applications settled early and regular work flows while sheltering them from the chill winds of sllooowww payment from contractors.
Who Are Networked Professionals?
Networked Professionals are a global recruitment business dedicated to senior and middle management recruitment in three specialist sectors – Renewable Technology, Transmission & Distribution and Sales, both in the U.K and Internationally.
What Do They Offer?
Networked Professionals deliver permanent and contract staffing solutions throughout Europe, Middle East, The Americas and Africa regions in both Energy & Infrastructure and Renewables & Environment.
The T&D team are specialists working across Electricity, Water, Gas, Transmission & Distribution and Rail projects, finding niche skills for transmission owners, TSO’s, network operators, multi-utility operators, contractors, service contract providers, principle contractors design consultancies and OEM’s.
Networked Professionals are able to meet all of the niche requirements of their clients because of extensive sector experiences in addition to a solid infrastructure and a parent company that has been trading strongly for over 30 years.
Networked Professionals understand that it can be frustrating working with a recruitment agency that doesn’t understand your requirements and working practices fully.
Building strong relationships with clients is the number one goal.
NP believe that every experience a client has with them should be of the highest standard, which is why they will provide a smooth, professional transition within any placement period and rigorously vet our candidates. This approach has enabled them to secure clients within large organisations.
Transmission & Distribution
Networked Professionals are responsible for delivering permanent and contract staffing solutions throughout Europe, Middle East, Asian, Americas and Africa across the Transmission and Distribution finding niche skills for the following clients:
- Transmission Owners | Distribution Owners
- Network Operators | Multi Utility Operators
- Contractors | Service Contract Providers
- Design Consultancies
- Local SME’s
- Large Corporations
Currently supplying candidates throughout the Transmission & Distribution industry to clients who specialise in MV-HV switchgear substations, new connections, transformers and cabling of various voltages – including the installation of 11kV/33kV joints and terminations. Dealing with candidates from all levels i.e. cable jointer, commissioning engineer to Director.
Their policy is to meet the individual needs of each client by using a wealth of experience and knowledge gained with the capability to meet all of the niche requirements of the client.
Working For Networked Professionals
Secure Payment, Early Payment
Networked Professionals pride themselves on the delivery of high calibre candidates along with continuous feedback for candidates.
Most recently they have developed great contracts with distribution suppliers in the south and the Midlands from which work can be ad-hoc days to 6 -12 month contracts. They ensure smooth payment terms which help with smaller teams just starting out that can’t take the usual 45 day payment terms.
A Satisfied Client
Their most recent success story of this is Lee Richards, former Project Manager for Dragon Infrastructure. With their help sourcing work and short payment terms he was able to take the leap from PAYE employee to Director of his own successful cable jointing contracting company LR Power Services.
Lee Richards is a 33kV Competent Jointer with diverse cable jointing skills covering LV (Consasc Wavecon | Live Cable Jointing), 11kV (Triplex PILC) up to 33kV – this encompasses manufacturers such as Lovink, Nexans Euromold, Tyco and Prysmian.
If you currently have a client with payment terms that don’t work for your pocket but you wish to continue working with them consider introducing them to Networked Professionals – their services will ensure that not only will they be happy by little to no change in the bottom line charge for them but the client will be a happier contractor getting paid for your hard work much sooner.
A word from Duane Thompson Co-Founder & Managing Director:
If you require staff for sub-contracting work nationally or internationally Networked Professionals can support your needs.
With our partnerships with generic and specific jobs boards and of course Thorne & Derrick we can support the labour and manning side of your company; whether this be one or two candidates to the supply of staff for an entire project the team at Networked Professionals is just on the other end of the phone to support you.
We have set up Networked Professionals to service the burgeoning talent requirement for transmission and distribution, renewables and infrastructure internationally and I am confident that our dedicated team will quickly establish the brand as a front-runner for recruitment in these sectors, with the support of the Solutions infrastructure.”
