Aimselect’s CEO Dean Bradshaw said: “The rate of growth we are experiencing is phenomenal. We position ourselves as partners rather than an agency and go beyond just supplying manpower. I think this is key to our growth.”
On Nico Young joining the Aimselect team, Bradshaw said: “Nico brings a wealth of experience with him and I am delighted to have him as part of the team. RS Wind have established itself as a leader in the blue collar sector and in particular all areas involving blade work which was an appealing bolt-on to add to our already developing areas.”
