Sphere Solutions, a leading construction recruitment company, has announced a series of senior appointments reflecting the growth and development plans for the next stage of the employee-owned business.


Providing recruitment services across all sectors and levels of the construction industry to almost 900 companies, including construction management, building, civil engineering, retail, housing and more, Sphere Solutions moved to an Employee Ownership Trust, a structure that has attracted a wealth of senior talent.


Phil Sharp has been named Area Director, and will focus on developing Sphere Solutions activities across Gloucester, Bristol and Exeter while Robyn Marshall has been appointed Social Value Manager, developing and delivering vital social and community-focused value strategies across the business’ recruitment projects.


Commenting on his new role, Phil Sharp, who brings more than 20 years of specialised construction recruitment experience to the business, said: “I am delighted to have joined Sphere Solutions, where collaboration, quality and commitment are key pillars. Since starting, I have been struck by the knowledge and talent here, and the synergy between the business and its clients.


“There are significant opportunities to develop these strengths and capitalise on new opportunities, both for us as a business and our client base. I look forward to driving growth into new sectors within the construction industry and building new relationships.”


A CITB Construction Ambassador who previously worked with leading construction and industry training firms, Robyn Marshall said: “Sphere Solutions has consistently demonstrated its commitment to communities across England and Wales, collaborating with organisations such as The Wallich, Boss Project and the School of Hard Knocks.”


“I am excited to identify further opportunities to promote diversity within the construction industry, supporting more women, young people, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds to consider a career in construction to address skills shortages and protect the future of the workforce.”


Sphere Solutions’ people-centric approach has seen the business grow significantly, filling 19,000 vacancies and placing around 8,500 individuals into constructions roles at all levels. This success led to the business moving to an Employee Ownership Trust last year, marking significant and meaningful recognition of its team’s contributions.


James Hughes, Managing Director at Sphere Solutions, said: “We are thrilled to have Phil and Robyn join our team at Sphere Solutions; their wealth of experience and expertise will help us to continue delivering the highest quality recruitment solutions for our clients while also ensuring that we make a positive impact on the communities we serve.


“We are confident that their appointments will be a key factor in our ongoing success and growth as a leading industry organisation.”
