New jobs are up for grabs at the rapidly expanding commercial energy supplier BES Utilities, owned by Fleetwood Town FC chairman Andy Pilley.

The company, which has offices at the football club’s Highbury ground and in Bispham, is having a new office extension built at the stadium.

Mr Pilley said the move comes after consistent increases in its business.

“This is great for the local community in Fleetwood and across the Fylde. It will benefit all parties,” he said. “There is to be an initial 40 new roles but as we attract more customers, obviously that would increase. We have experienced huge growth, utilities are a commodity everybody needs and we are bucking the national trend taking on more and more customers.”

BES buys electricity and gas for commercial businesses shopping around to get its customers the best prices. With wholesale energy prices continuing to rise more firms are looking to get better deals.

A two-day recruitment event will take place next Wednesday and Thursday, to let people learn more. Vacancies exist in business administration, finance, credit control and sales. For admin roles forward a CV and covering letter to recruitment@besutilities.co.uk. For sales roles call 01253 775070.

Director, Michelle Davidson said: “The recruitment event is a great way to showcase our company and the exciting vacancies on offer.

“We have spent over £1.5m on these new offices which will eventually house 136 staff.”
