Fulcrum has new jobs in the pipeline with significant recruitment drive

24 Dec 2018

Fulcrum Group, the UK’s leading independent multi-utility infrastructure and services provider, is embarking on a significant recruitment drive to support its direct-delivery model and meet growing customer demand following enhanced pipeline.

The Sheffield-based PLC, which recently announced it had grown its order book to the value of £45.8 million, an increase of 8.8 percent since March 2018, is creating more than 30 jobs, which will grow its workforce by 10 percent to over 300.

Expanding its existing multi-utility teams, which operate throughout the UK, Fulcrum is aiming to hire experienced construction and engineering professionals in key areas of the UK.

This includes 20 engineers to join its country-wide construction teams and five experienced utility Project Engineers in the North West, the Midlands and East Anglia.

In addition, the company is looking to hire three assistant project engineers along with additional support crews, grab drivers, reinstatement teams, and boards and barriers teams.

Fulcrum has enjoyed strong growth in recent years, most recently reporting, in its interim financial results for the six-month period ending 30 September 2018, revenues of £29.2million and a record adjusted EBITDA of £5.4million.

The company designs, installs and maintains gas and electricity infrastructure for housing and commercial property developments. This is increasingly including electricity infrastructure for electric vehicle charging stations.

It is also entering the Smart Metering market and recently secured the accreditations required to install, adopt and operate smart meters.

Martin Harrison, CEO of Fulcrum, said: “Bolstering our teams will ensure we can deliver upon our increasing order book and create the capacity required to secure new work and exceed customer expectations. In the last few years we have focused on our direct-delivery model, which reduces our use of sub-contractors. This ensures we can maintain the high standards we set for the business and deliver a consistent level of service and expertise through our talented and experienced workforce.

“We are very proud to be able to create these new roles across the country as we continue to build our presence across the UK and in growing markets including the electric vehicle charging sector.”
