Specialist recruitment firm Advance TRS has kickstarted 2024 with the launch of an exciting new venture. In a statement released on 5 February, it announced the launch of CITILINE Limited, Telecommunications and M&E recruitment consultancy. The brand will operate as part of the company group.

CITILINE is set to revolutionise talent acquisition in the UK’s ever-evolving built environment. Its launch is the product of 10 years’ experience, passion, and a dedication to delivering premium quality solutions.

The new enterprise is led by Ben Shayegan, former head of Telecoms and M&E at Advance TRS. Ben joined the organisation as a trainee recruitment consultant in 2014 with an ambition to one day lead his own business. Under the guidance of long-serving industry veterans, with a thorough understanding of the UK’s technical sectors and an innate ability to build strong, long-lasting relationships, he quickly ascended through the ranks.

“I am incredibly excited to move on to this next chapter and introduce CITILINE to my extensive network. This venture would not be possible without them,” said Ben. “Thank you to all who I have had the opportunity to work with over the last ten years. I very much look forward to continuing our relationship and the many more successful years ahead.”

Ben’s efforts as the driving force behind the new venture have earned him high praise from his colleagues at Advance TRS.

“I have worked with Ben for the last decade, serving as his mentor during the very early days of his career and then later as a friend,” said Advance TRS’ managing director, Andy Ridout. “I feel an immense sense of pride surrounding this achievement. CITILINE is an invaluable addition to the Advance TRS Group. I’ve no doubt that it will have such a positive impact on the industry and have every faith in Ben’s leadership. I am thrilled to see what the future holds.”

The Advance TRS Group works with some of the world’s largest engineering organisations, providing permanent and contingent solutions for the nation’s most notable rail projects. It is an approved supplier to a number of industry-leading organisations including Alstom, Network Rail, and Babcock.

The firm’s team of experts is well established in the sector, ensuring the best results for clients with specialisms focused on signalling, telecoms, E&P, OLE, Civils, M&E, Pway and Project Services. As such, it is accredited by the Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS), allowing it to supply rail recruitment solutions to clients across the UK. With over 400 contractors working across the UK rail network, the firm is committed to the highest safety standards.

As a subsidiary of Advance TRS, CITILINE, its clients and candidates will benefit from established processes with the added energy and agility of a newly emerging SME, guaranteeing clients, candidates, and contractors complete assurance from day one.
