Tanya Lyons, promoted to National Business Manager at multi-sector recruiter, Barker Ross

Tanya Lyons has been promoted to national business manager for multi-sector recruiter, Barker Ross.

Lyons will be responsible for developing large manufacturing and distribution accounts with a high volume of temporary workers, utilising Barker Ross’s biometric resources and e-training systems which ensure productivity and safety.

Lyons joined Barker Ross ten years ago in a trainee recruitment consultant role. She comments:
“I joined our industrial division in a trainee role, and soon saw that I had the skills to operate as a consultant. Barker Ross gave me that opportunity, which today sees me become national business manager. This role really suits me as for the last few years; I have specialised in high volume recruitment and really developed my skills and contacts in this area.”

Paul Ross, chief executive and founder of Barker Ross says:
“Tanya has developed here and is now a very competent recruitment professional; whose dedication and commitment to providing a first class service at all times is second to none. The advantage with Tanya’s experience is that she thoroughly understands client requirements and is aware of Barker Ross’s ability to deliver against those. I’ve never known Tanya oversell and will only commit to what she firmly believes Barker Ross can deliver.”

“I think that keeping people like Tanya with us for many years has been the key to our success. Whereas many recruitment companies have quite high staff turnover, our people generally stay here a long time. And clients love this as they can build a relationship with someone and speak to the same person every time they need to recruit.”

Lyons is based in Milton Keynes, where Barker Ross recruits temporary and permanent staff for logistics, food, industrial, waste, construction, energy, civil engineering and housing companies.
