Fleetwood-based energy and sport specialist BES Group has hailed its latest recruitment day a roaring success after more than 70 people attended to find out more about career opportunities.

BES – which incorporates Fleetwood Town FC and commercial energy supplier BES Utilities – is searching for a wide variety of local talent to join their existing workforce.

The group threw open the doors of its Fleetwood offices to talk to potential candidates and collect CVs.

The group said recruitment staff were now analysing the skills of those who attended and look to match these to a number of vacancies within the group, which range from managerial positions to domestic support.

Tony Kennedy, BES Group’s recruitment manager, said: “Our recruitment day was a major success. We had a constant stream of people coming through our doors and saw more than 70 people on the day.

“We met some excellent local talent and days like these show what great skills and people are out there across the Fylde coast.

“Across the group we employ more than 400 local people and hopefully, after our recruitment day, we will be in a position to offer many more roles with BES Group.

“We pride ourselves on not just offering jobs but careers and real opportunities for people to develop their skills and become a key part of BES Group’s continued success and expansion.”
