The Olympic Flame passed within metres of Torse offices in Nottingham’s Lace Market yesterday evening around 6.40pm. Some members of Torse staff took the opportunity to watch from the third story whilst others stood at ground level and watched the flame literally pass the front door. Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean were due to appear with the flame in the city centre and were whisked along in a police vehicle along with the coaches and floats associated with the torch relay. High Pavement was the final stretch of the route to Market Square in Nottingham, where the torch relay would conclude for the day.
Oh the curse of Spring! One of our highly valued Client Services Team is off to pastures new. She and her beau are off to London to seek out ‘the streets paved with gold’, as he’s been offered a well-heeled opportunity with one of those German automobile businesses. What that means for us is that we’re keen to find an equally talented and capable individual to fill that position. This is an excellent chance for someone to take on a role with responsibility, authority and personal development opportunities.
No surprise; we’re looking for someone good who will be an integral part of the team, who we anticipate developing within the business. It’s not necessarily about energy industry experience, [we believe that can be acquired], it’s about the right candidate, with a commercially mature outlook, an ability to think and take on responsibility. It’s not just a job, it’s a career and we want it to be a positive move for you. Have a look at the Torse website by all means; but don’t be overwhelmed, it’s not quite rocket science. If you want to find out more, complete an application form and send your CV, and we may well be talking further. Closing date for applications is the 22nd February, and initial meetings for strong candidates will be offered very quickly.
Whilst the new Torse head office building could accurately be described as ‘old’, as they are Grade II listed buildings in the revitalised Lace Market area of Nottingham City Centre, we are excited about our new workspace in this vibrant area. A fair amount of preparation needs to be done first and but we will be moving into these attractive new premises soon! The move reflects an opportunity with the much increased space to build our client and supplier management teams, our data management and sustainability functions to enhance the levels of proactive support for Clients. There will be improved training and presentation facilities for internal activities and client and supplier visits.
Torse has been working in conjunction with ETC, The Environmental Technology Centre at Nottingham University, to balance Energy Management wishes with Conservation Area requirements. We have also been in discussion as to whether the Torse building could be linked into the Enviroenergy heating and energy network, although this may be a longer term project.
We will update you with more news and images soon. We look forward to meeting you at our new premises!
To all applicants of the job advertised on this site on 21 October:
Thank you for your participation in our recruitment process for the Client & Supplier Management Role. A decision has been made about the position and I’m afraid another candidate has been offered the position.
We were generally impressed by the standard of applicants, where your skills and experience, demonstrated that you patently were strong candidates for the position. At this time your skills and experience do not fit the requirements of the role as well as the final selection.
We do feel that many of you have much to offer the right role in the right organisation and would be pleased if you would consider Torse again in the future for other positions which are intended to evolve from our continuing development. We wish you well with your current endeavours.
