MPACT appoints first HR manager as company continues rapid growth

Edinburgh building services specialist MPACT has further accelerated its growth trajectory with the appointment of a dedicated HR manager who will oversee all the complex and varied aspects of staff relations.

The Loanhead-based firm said its appointment of Yvonne Jack to what is a newly-created role in the company illustrates the speed with which it has transformed itself from a local concern into a nationally operating enterprise.

Yvonne, who has in-depth experience in HR Roles in both the retail and manufacturing sectors, will initially work three days a week to ensure the full panoply of human resource procedures and regulatory compliance is in place.

Matthew Wright, co-founder and director of MPACT, said: “We are delighted to have Yvonne’s input into our HR department, which now looks after 67 staff, and we are sure she will make a dynamic contribution to the team.”

Yvonne, who assumed her new role at the end of last year, said: “MPACT is a family-run business and it is a great feeling to be part of it. A good HR department is of benefit to everyone in the company and I want the staff to know that my door will always be open”.
