ISO Spaces CIOSIF loan creates four new roles
After receiving funding from the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Investment Fund (CIOSIF), ISO Spaces has already begun on its 12-month mission to double the workforce and recruit and train around 20 new staff, as well as increasing technical and production capacity.
ISO Spaces, a company which develop innovative spaces for living and working, repurposing some of the world’s 14 million redundant shipping containers, has employed four individuals since the loan has been in place. Debbie Phillips (Marketing Assistant), Joe Wilson (Partnership Manager), Charlotte Monks (Junior Designer) and Jonathan McGill (Design Engineer) have joined the team, pictured from left to right.
In addition to these four new recruits, ISO Spaces will be looking to bring further talent into the business to fuel the company’s growth ambitions. Setting out to become the UK’s market leader in the design and manufacture of permanently portable, modular spaces for living and working, the business will be looking to add a further Partnership Manager, Construction Project Manager, Architect, Town Planner, Designers and Sales Support.
The £40 million Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Investment Fund provides debt and equity finance from £25k to £2 million to help growing small businesses across the region. It has been established by the British Business Bank in partnership with the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and is operated by appointed fund manager FSE Group.
Building a team of the right people who all share the same vision as ISO Spaces is vital if we are going to succeed in achieving our business goals. Finding like-minded professionals who can help elevate us to the next level can take time, but we view recruiting the right people as a journey we’re always prepared to embark on. Fortunately, we operate out of a county that has historically developed outstanding creative and technical talent; ISO Spaces gives these talented individuals the perfect environment to flourish.
