Recruitment drive for Leeds office of PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd

21 October 2021

At the start of October, Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) was delighted to announce the acquisition of Neo Property Solutions Limited (Neo) – a highly accredited company offering passive fire services.

Since its founding year of 2014, Neo has grown to become one of the UK’s most trusted Passive Fire Protection Specialists, providing a fully compliant service to a range of clients across the country.

The company has created over 25 new roles after winning a string of new contracts. The roles are based in the North West, the Midlands and Yorkshire as the business continues to expand its client base nationally.

Neo, which has taken on over 75 employees in 2021 alone, has been awarded several contracts with various universities, student accommodation providers, healthcare facilities and local authorities, driving the need for more personnel. To support its growth, Neo has invested over £44,000 into the training and development of all employees during the last twelve months and plans to continue this trend throughout 2022.

The business is placing further investment into its training and development scheme, inviting those with no industry experiencing to apply and receive on-the-job training.

The first of many recruitment initiatives took place during the summer when Neo welcomed a group of promising recruits from nationwide employment scheme, The Growth Company.

The initiative, which was developed to help the unemployed get back into work, was designed to promote career opportunities for all and nurture local economic investment in the Northwest, where several of the business’ clients are based.

The candidates, all from the Manchester area, underwent a four-week intensive training programme in Passive Fire Protection, initially taking place at Neo’s on-site Training and Development Centre and later on-site.

Business Services Manager, Barry Whitehead, who manages the training scheme, commented, “To be able to provide new members of our workforce with the skills to start a career in fire protection and get them back into work is, personally, very rewarding. It’s a great opportunity for the recruits too, who will work alongside our regular passive fire protection teams and then towards a FIRAS accreditation.”

As part of the recruitment drive, Neo is also appealing for apprentice joiners and fire stoppers to get in touch and enrol onto their apprenticeship programme. All live job vacancies can be viewed via Team Tailor on

Neo has bolstered PTSG’s already comprehensive Fire Solutions offering, taking its place alongside:
• A Mechanical fire business comprising: UK Dry Riser Maintenance UK Dry Riser Installations UK Sprinklers M&P Fire Protection Pure Power
• An Electrical fire and security offering via: Trinity Fire and Security Systems

As a Group, PTSG has five business divisions: PTSG Access & Safety Ltd, PTSG Electrical Services Ltd, PTSG Building Cess Specialists Ltd, PTSG Fire Solutions Ltd and PTSG Water Treatment Ltd.

Paul Teasdale, PTSG’s Group CEO, said: “Neo mirrors PTSG in the way it proactively develops up and coming talent in the industry. We also founded a Training and Development Centre to ensure our engineers have the skills, training and qualifications required to perform their highly specialised work to the highest level in each of our business divisions.

“I echo Barry Whitehead’s words in saying how rewarding it is to be able to offer each member of our workforce an individualised programme of continuous professional development to help them achieve their potential.”
