Contractors adds four more staff


UK: Expanding Luton-based m&e contractor and consultancy 361 Degrees has added four new members of staff.

Increased demand for the company’s mechanical consultancy and design services has prompted the creation of four new roles in marketing, project management and finance.

Emma Parkins has been appointed as content marketing executive. With a passion for social media and expertise in public relations, Emma has previous experience working within the financial sector with a proven success in referral marketing.

Alison Reed, who previously worked part-time for the company over the school summer holidays assisting with various administration duties, joins the service and maintenance support team.

The other two roles are in the accounts department: Lisa Watkins has been appointed finance executive and Ingrid Goodenough joins as finance assistant.

Mark Penprase, general manager of 361 Degrees believes that diversity is a key part of a successful team: “Fresh ideas and alternative points of views are key parts of 361 Degrees’ vision. I am really pleased to introduce Emma, Alison, Lisa and Ingrid to our team as it demonstrates our commitment to become an industry leader for mechanical services.”
