Leading project focused recruitment company, Navartis, is backing the Project Manager of the Year at the RailStaff Awards 2013.
As the scramble continues to attract new people to the rail industry Navartis is taking the lead in supplying quality professionals to Europe’s fastest growing railway network.
Says Tom O’Connor of the Rail Media Group, ‘Every edition of RailStaff and the rail engineer carries extensive reporting of major projects being progressed in almost every area of the railways. The Project Manager of the Year is a hugely important award as we seek to shine a light on the immense skill and hard work that goes into leading major projects.
In the rail industry major projects are regularly delivered on time and on budget. This point needs to be emphasised again and again as we argue the case for High Speed 2 and more railways to cope with growing demand. Navartis brings great expertise to the rail industry and it is hugely encouraging to see them backing this important award.’
The rail industry is increasingly turning to proven professional recruitment specialists like Navartis to close the skills gap. Railways need more engineers, technicians and management professionals.
Says Jim Sloan, Director, Navartis, ‘The rail industry in the UK presents a real opportunity for businesses and motivated professionals. Projects like Crossrail, Great Western Electrification, the Northern Hub are proof of an industry on a confident, upward, curve. Our job is to aid progress through the supply of the people needed to design, build, maintain and upgrade the railways throughout Britain. Project management is a tough and demanding skill. We think it right to honour the men and women taking the decisions that deliver the new railway on the ground. All of us at Navartis are looking forward to the RailStaff Awards and to meeting both winners and staff as together we celebrate the success story that is the new rail industry.’
