After our announcement last week regarding Techno Pro Holdings acquiring majority shareholdings of Orion Electrotech, we have some further Orion news to announce….

Our Half Year conference was also held last week, with the following exciting announcements made;

We would like to congratulate Ross Benham on his recent promotion to Director.

Ross has been with Orion for 10 years now, and within that time, the company has changed a lot, including Ross’ stature.  

Starting out as one of our Recruitment Consultants back in 2008, he has worked his way up through the career ladder.

Ross will work alongside Paul Ridley and John Waters, driving the business forward, but will also be continuing his roll in monitoring, coaching and developing our Engineering, Automotive, Controls and Automation, life Sciences and Aerospace & Defence Recruitment Sectors.


We also had announcements of our Employee of the Month for September;

Our nominations and reason for them were;

Abby Maslin - For growth and development within her role.

Kris Holmes – Although he is a new starter, he is producing really good results and becoming a leading light within the Life Sciences team.

Russell Pratt – For his relentless attitude throughout the month and showing more of a Business Development outlook.

Katie Carter – Katie secured her first 360 deal within the month.  She has shown a real understanding of her role within the business and as a result, things just seem to be falling into place for her.


We are pleased to announce that our Employee of the Month for September is Kris Holmes.

As our Employee of the month, Kris has received a threshold free month and a place on our wall of fame.


Our Employee of the Quarter was also announced at the half year update.

The winner received a unanimous number of votes from all the management team.

  • He was chosen for his relentless attitude and development within his role.
  • He is very quiet and unassuming within the office but manages to produce excellent results.
  • He has formed a good relationship with his clients and candidates and goes the extra mile to make sure all their needs are met.


The winner of our Q2 Employee of the Quarter is Dan Wilson – Congratulations and keep up the great work.

Dan has received a £500 voucher of his choice for being crowned the winner.


We have also introduced a ‘Team of the Quarter’ award. This will be announced on a Quarterly basis and will be done by a companywide vote.

The winning team will be given £250 towards a team night out to celebrate.


We made the decision to change the destination of our Half Year Ski Trip incentive from St Anton, Austria to Chamonix, France.

Congratulations to the following consultants that hit their half year target, to be able to go on this exciting weekend break in January 2019.
