A leading training and apprenticeship provider has appointed a new Sales Director as it looks to grow its business across Wales and into the private sector in England.
Timothy Barnett joins the board of Educ8, which is headquartered from its base in Tredomen, Caerphilly, after spending a decade in Cambridge running his own business.
Speaking of his appointment, Mr Barnett said:
“I am delighted to be joining Educ8 at a pivotal point in the company’s evolution. Despite challenges within the sector, the company has achieved impressive growth in recent years founded on values that remain at the core of the business. The opportunities to accelerate the rate of growth are significant, which is just one of the many reasons why I am looking forward to joining the senior team at Educ8 and play my part in the next phase of the company’s development.”
Educ8 employs 125 people across two sites in Wales and has an established reputation as a major provider of apprenticeships and vocational training courses.
Speaking of the appointment of Mr Barnett, Educ8 CEO Grant Santos, said: “We are incredibly lucky to have appointed someone of Timothy’s calibre to such a vital position on our board at a critical stage of growth for our business.
“Timothy brings 20 years of sales and marketing experience to the role across a range of sectors, fourteen years of which have been spent at director level. Timothy joins Educ8 from FTSE multinational IWG Plc, where his role included responsibility for the entire revenue generation operation in Wales. We are confident in his ability to guide our sales function as we look to expand into the private sector both in Wales and England.”
Educ8 offers employers a series of interlinked opportunities such as Jobs Growth Wales, Young Recruits and Apprenticeships Programmes provide a seamless solution to staff recruitment and development requirements across many organisations.
