VS Group is proud to announce that Jim Yelland, our now former Head of Technical Engineering, will be taking up a new, more involved posting within the company.

Although Jim will continue to oversee the majority of our telephone system installations, he will now be having increased involvement within the Operations, Customer Service and Technical support departments of VS Group.

Jim is one of few ‘Platinum standard’ Telecoms Engineers in the country, and he will be utilising his 37 years of telecoms industry expertise to streamline VS Group’s Operations processes.

VS Group’s Telecoms Engineer Training Programme will also continue to be headed by Jim; in his professional career, Jim has trained a dozen Telecoms Engineers, who now work across the globe.  Our in-house traineeship provides specialist employment pathways for young people in and around Manchester, to forge a career in the technical industry – this also ensures that all of our Telecoms Engineers are trained to meet our exacting standards.  We are pleased to currently be recruiting for the traineeship programme and a result of the expansion, VS Group will be bringing all of its installation processes in-house and will no longer be using any subcontractors to carry out our installs.

Jim said : “I am very humbled to be having an increased input in VS Group.  It is a very exciting time for our company, with it going from strength-to-strength, I am very much looking forward to contributing to its ongoing progress.”
