A Fylde coast energy business is set to take on 50 more workers as business hots up.

The BES Group, owned by Fleetwood Town owner Andy Pilley, is to create around 50 new jobs, following continued growth over the past 12 months.

A two-day recruitment event will be taking place next Wednesday and Thursday at the BES Utilities offices, which are based at Fleetwood Town Football Club on Park Avenue.

The event will run over two evenings, from 5pm to 8pm, to cater for people already in employment.

The company said it was an open invitation for talented individuals to learn more about the group of companies and our career opportunities.

Managing Director, Andy Pilley, said: “This is an exciting time for us and we’re delighted to announce that, due to our growing success, we can offer local people the opportunity to join our team of specialists.

“The recruitment event is a great way to showcase our companies and the exciting vacancies on offer.

“Current vacancies exist in business administration, finance and customer service, as well some sales opportunities with our trusted partner companies.”

A full description of all the departments is available on the careers page on the company website:

BES Utilities supplies electricity, gas and telecommunication services to businesses nationwide, and the group of companies also includes a sales aggregator business, which processes contracts on behalf of several leading energy suppliers.

BES was founded by Mr Pilley in a spare bedroom in 2002. But it has grown into a group employing more than 350 and in October 2013 moved into purpose built offices above the Memorial Stand at Highbury.
