RUSSELL Taylor Group has appointed specialist recruiter Mark McVey to head up its Liverpool-based Facilities Management Division as the business sees this sector workforce as being increasingly important to the UK’s economic growth and productivity.
Mark joins the company at a time when the Facilities Management market is predicted to rise by £10 billion by 2022 and outsourcing to grow by £2 billion in an even shorter timescale.
He said: “This is an exciting time to become part of the Russell Taylor Group team – a time when our business’ future growth plans align with the country’s emerging field of Facilities Management.
“FM is now a vital business function in every workplace, providing freedom for organisations to achieve their business objectives. It’s about having the right people in place to maximise company resources which will improve productivity and wellbeing while, at the same time, minimise costs.
“Increasingly, businesses throughout the UK are now realising that well-managed buildings and utilities mean they can operate more effectively and efficiently and, as a result, expand and grow.”
Mark’s specialist consultants are recruiting professionals involved in the day-to-day analysis, maintenance and repair of company utilities as well as having an understanding of how strategic planning can help cut costs and increase employee productivity.
He added: “They are all committed to the belief that a highly professional workforce operating in the FM field is crucial to economic success. Our division’s strengths lie in identifying this talent then creating the perfect employer and job-seeker match to make this possible.”
Mark joins Russell Taylor Group after previously working in the recruitment industry and, before that, in retail management.

“Its inception has come at a time of further expansion at Russell Taylor Group and the work of Mark and his team will make a huge contribution to the business, particularly as the Facilities Management sector has become a major growth area in the UK due to the changing demands of the traditional workplace which is now experiencing a shift towards a more productive and agile environment.”
