On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Lucy Simpkins

Enderby-based HR software specialist 247 Time has expanded its team after hiring marketing assistant Lucy Simpkins.

Simpkins has relocated from Cheltenham to Leicestershire and joins from a Vauxhall dealership where she held a similar position.

Describing marketing as something she has “a real passion for”, Simpkins joins the team at 247 Time, which has grown from three employees to 25 in just seven years.

She said: “I’m really happy to join such a dynamic company. I hope to bring some fresh ideas whilst delivering the already strong marketing messages 247 Time has in place.

“I would like to see 247 Time continue going from strength to strength, providing its outstanding software to an even bigger client base.”

David Brooks, managing director at 247 Time, said: “It’s great to have Lucy on board. Her marketing experience will be vital as we look to build the company even further, and her fresh ideas will bring an exciting new perspective to how we go about positioning the company in short and long term.”

Sam Herminie and Joe Staniforth

The RU Group, the Nottingham financial services group, has made two appointments, with Sam Herminie and Joe Staniforth joining as paraplanners.

Andy Dyke, managing director of The RU Group, said: “Over recent years we have laid the foundations for growth through the reorganisation of the Group and the development of a dynamic strategic plan. We are committed to further developing the business and recruiting the right people at our offices in Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield to deliver excellent client service which is a fundamental part of our growth strategy.”
