Sheffield firm takes on ten new staff

Ten new members of staff are being taken on at a Sheffield company which has almost doubled its workforce.

Health and Safety firm HS Direct, based near Meadowhall Shopping Centre, has taken on five new members already and plans to take on another five in the New Year.

The company was launched a decade ago with three employees and now has a team of 40 helping organisations across the UK.

Nick Murphy, managing director, said: “For a relatively small firm these figures are huge.

“In the last few months we’ve pretty much doubled our staff numbers and already we know we need to take on more.”

The firm is also taking on 12 more staff at its Huntingdon branch.
