Founded by Ian Thomas and Victoria Hesketh in late 2020, Vannin Solutions are permanent recruitment specialists for the UK Rail Industry. Based in Ormskirk, Lancashire, they aim to establish themselves as the ‘go to’ name for permanent rail staffing solutions across the UK by offering a first-class service that’s simple, clear and straightforward.
Ian brings with him a wealth of in-depth railway knowledge and a network of contacts built up from a successful rail career that spans two decades. Victoria has a track record of entrepreneurship, having established and sold several companies during her 20 years as a Company Director.
Says Victoria, “During the first lockdown, Ian and I decided to change our career paths and combine our skills. Ian’s unrivalled rail knowledge and my experience of establishing and running successful businesses, naturally led to the formation of Vannin Solutions.” Partners of 14 years, Ian and Victoria found that, like many, lockdown forced them to re-evaluate their work/life balance and they realised that a change was needed. “12-hour door to door working days were no longer an option.” says Victoria, “We’re very fortunate to be able to successfully run the company from our home office, therefore reducing our overheads and our carbon footprint too.”
Vannin Solutions offer permanent recruitment solutions at all levels within the rail industry. Ian says, “We have the expertise and experience of putting the right people into the right jobs. All businesses work in different ways, we listen and deliver recruitment solutions in a way that suits each individual business. We want to work in partnership with companies to improve their internal recruitment requirements.”
Ian and Victoria take a fresh approach to recruitment with their core company values being honesty, transparency and industry knowledge. Says Victoria, “One thing that I’ve learnt when establishing businesses is to build them on foundations of honesty. And to always deliver what you’ve promised efficiently and on time.”
