Family Business PHX Training Expand Team with Senior Recruits

PHX Training, a leading North West training provider and family business, has grown its senior team with the recruitment of two new head of departments.

Becci Byers and Julie Torrance have joined the company, which has centres across Lancashire and Cumbria, as they continue to meet the growing challenge of helping people to reskill and find routes back to work.

Becci joins as a new Head of Work Based Learning, while Julie takes up the role of Head of Employment and Training Services.

PHX Training is becoming more prominent in local communities to help people find routes back into work or education, in addition to helping businesses take on apprenticeships, apply for Kickstart funding, or access workplace learning.

PHX Training Managing Director Briony Fawcett said: “The jobs market at the moment is moving extremely quickly, as some sectors struggle and others grow. That can be difficult for some people who find themselves needing to reskill, or for employers who need to retrain their workforce or recruit new staff.

“Our expert staff can help people of all ages reskill to find their next job, or help bosses to train and grow their workforce to become more skilled. Both Julie and Becci add a tremendous wealth of experience to that growing team.”

PHX Training delivers government backed initiatives including adult skills, employability, apprenticeships and work based learning. They have extensive experience working alongside DWP, ESFA and Job Centre Plus.

The PHX team of qualified trainers also offers a diverse range of resources including offline, online and face-to-face services at six training centres in Barrow, Carlisle, Workington, Morecambe, Preston and Blackpool.
