Despite all the software and hardware in IT, it is still a people driven business, a fact Brennan IT is all too aware of as it begins ramping up its headcount.
To better service the mid-market, typically between 50 to 1000 seats for the company, the local Cloud provider is initiating a new management structure that is focused on expanding its capabilities for clients.
Brennan IT managing director, Dave Stevens, said restructuring the business formed an integral part of the company’s “aggressive” three-year growth strategy.
“The sales-side restructure was driven around wanting to be able to recruit staff that specialise in business development or account management,” he said.
Stevens said in the service delivery world, it was about building a specialist team to manage the company’s managed services clients and that revenue stream.
“It’s about driving growth and building a business, but it is also about creating more specialist areas that have a more tightly defined set of objectives,” he said.
As a result of the restructure, approximately 50 new roles will be created at Brennan IT.
The first group of roles consists of solutions architects that Stevens expects will work with existing clients and prospects on solutions design and pre-sales support for the sales team.
“We’re also recruiting sales people, account managers, and business people,” he said.
“And the bulk of the recruitment is around service delivery staff as well.”
Other positions being made available include a head of service delivery, which Stevens says is a new role for the company, and also for both senior consultants and engineers.
When asked whether he foresee more positions being available around this same time next year, Stevens was not able to make any predictions, but remained upbeat about future recruitment.
“It’s probably going to take us a few months to get through the fifty or so roles that we have vacant right now, it’s not something that we’ll be able to do overnight,” he said.
“However, some of the positions such as sales and our engineering teams are continually growing, so we will remain on the lookout for people there.”
