First Response Training and Consultancy Services which provides a wide range of workplace health and safety and first aid training courses has welcomed a new managing director.
Oliver Raisbeck has taken over the reins at FRT at a time of considerable success for the company, which has been celebrating a record-breaking start to the new financial year with new business and contracts secured. His initial work will be focussed on developing a new business plan for FRT to help contribute further to this growth.
Oliver, who will be based at the company’s Pershore office, has obtained several years’ experience in the private training sector after having fulfilled the role of Regional Commercial Director for one of Europe’s largest specialist professional education providers. Prior to that he honed his skills as Head of Business Development within the corporate training arm of a UK university.
Darren Eden, who established FRT over 17 years ago and is now Chief Executive of its parent company, says: "Oliver was the successful candidate for the role following a robust search and selection process and we are confident that we have appointed the right person to join our leadership team and to take the company on to more great times in the future."
