Sure Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Garedd Gardner as its new Group Operations Director. The appointment is part of Sure Group’s plans to expand its business significantly over the next few months, with multiple jobs expected to be created as the business gears towards supporting businesses of all sizes.
Garedd has nearly 30 years’ worth of experience working for nationally renowned businesses and has been responsible for more than 170 customer-based distribution sites and up to 16,000 colleagues during peak periods. Garedd’s experience working across large complex cross-sector organisations will support Sure Group’s growth to support larger clients, especially within Sure Staffing.
The Group, as a whole, has experienced rapid growth in recent years, and currently supports hundreds of businesses, including significantly sized companies in agriculture, warehousing, manufacturing, and hospitality.
The appointment of Garedd adds significant capacity to the business as it focuses on supporting larger businesses requiring thousands of colleagues – and will create multiple jobs with this focus in mind.
Garedd said: “Sure Group has been a disruptor in the market for the last few years so the opportunity to be part of its journey was one I could not refuse. The way that the business conducts itself and goes above and beyond for its clients has resulted in its rapid expansion across other sectors nationwide.
“I am delighted to be able to bring my expertise gained over the last 30 years to this business and demonstrate why Sure Group is a leader in the recruitment sector.”
Charles Draper, Sure Group Managing Director, said: “Garedd’s appointment is a coup for Sure Group – he brings significant industry knowledge to the business that will help us continue on our trajectory.
“His appointment has unlocked new opportunities for this business which will generate new jobs nationwide and, in his role as Group Operations Director, will continue to uphold the high standards of customer service we pride ourselves in.”
