Ganymede, a leading supplier of contingent labour to the infrastructure sector will provide a new focused end-to-end service offering to the industry in 2020, following a merger with the infrastructure and transportation divisions of its sister company, ATA Recruitment.
From January 2020, Ganymede will be able to offer the rail, construction, energy, highways and water sectors a complete suite of diverse people solutions. From design, project management, commercial and engineering staff to on-site labour, Ganymede can now support clients throughout the full lifecycle of infrastructure projects, from tender to completion.
ATA Recruitment, also part of the £90m Derby-based RTC Group, boast over 50 years’ experience in white-collar contract, permanent and executive recruitment, and have supported some of the UK’s biggest rail and infrastructure projects. This expertise combined with Ganymede’s workforce solution management capabilities makes the newly expanded Ganymede business a clear partner of choice for major infrastructure companies across the country.
Operating within the same markets, and sharing many mutual clients, the decision to merge the infrastructure and transportation divisions of ATA Recruitment was made with client offering and ease in mind.
Paul Crompton, Managing Director of Ganymede who continues to head the business, said: “I’m delighted to announce the merger of Ganymede with the infrastructure and transportation divisions of ATA Recruitment, which will create a large-scale business, offering a holistic client proposition. The aim of the combined business is to support our clients with diverse people solutions, offering the relevant skills to design, build and maintain infrastructure across the country. This is an exciting chapter in the growth of Ganymede which will create opportunities for our existing staff, alongside new jobs and a commitment to make a positive impact on wider society”.
From January 2020, Paul Crompton will also oversee ATA Recruitment as he is appointed as Managing Director to drive forward ATA Recruitment’s existing engineering and manufacturing division, which will continue to operate from their established offices in Leicester and Leeds.
With the merger of ATA’s infrastructure and transportation divisions officially taking place seamlessly with Ganymede from the start of January 2020, clients will continue to receive the excellent level of service that the company strives to offer, along with the additional benefit of a much larger service offering from their regional offices in Derby, Doncaster, Crewe, Milton Keynes, London, Portsmouth and Cardiff.
With the new business structure also comes an impressive £100,000 renovation of the existing head office in Derby located at the Derby Conference Centre, creating a new modern office environment with plenty of space for new staff to join the growing company.
Known for its commitment to safety, Ganymede’s ‘safety first, safety always’ approach sees them as a tier 1 contingent labour supplier to Network Rail, with over 1,500 operatives on-site at any one time. The company remains focused on delivering excellence and supplying a safety-focused workforce to its clients and as such, is investing in a number of initiatives to further enhance their service delivery, safety performance and corporate social responsibility activities throughout 2020 and beyond.
