Happy showcases Walker Sime’s success stories
Walker Sime is a multi-disciplinary construction company working on some landmark projects. Right now, that includes some remarkable projects including the £5bn Liverpool Waters project, Liverpool2, Manchester Civic Quarter Heat Network, regeneration of Rochdale and Preston town centres, and appointment to the Transport for Greater Manchester framework.
They’re growing rapidly with staff numbers almost touching 100.
A typical pain point for any rapidly growing business is having the time and in-house skills to talk about all the good things you’re doing. That’s why we’ve been appointed Walker Sime’s PR and content partner, so more people can discover for themselves not only what Walker Sime is doing from a projects perspective, but what the company is ‘about’ from a personal, people perspective too.
We’ll be helping the company develop its content and PR strategy before creating a range of opinion pieces, blogs, infographics and animations that ensure Walker Sime gets the PR coverage its initiatives deserve.
And there’s so much to say. Like the fact that already this year, the company has recruited 21 new members of the team. Like the brilliant work being done with apprentices across the business. And like the difference Walker Sime’s people are making across the communities they serve – from local hospices to the homeless to litter picks.
The Walker Sime ‘juice’
There’s something about Walker Sime people that make them the right cultural fit for an organisation that’s growing fast but remains committed to growing in the right way. Managing Director, Duncan Firth calls it the Walker Sime ‘juice’. It’s something he sees in Happy too.
He said: “For some time we’ve recognised the need to share more of our stories with and beyond our industry. I’ve been aware of Happy for some time now and admire their purpose and ethos (as well as their work). They’re the right team to augment our own as we aim to recruit fresh talent and build our visibility in new markets.”
Chief Happy Karen Lambert said: “It’s important for us to work with clients whose purpose, values and people-driven culture feel like a natural fit for our own. That’s absolutely the case with Walker Sime. You get such a buzz of positivity from everyone we’ve spoken to on the team – people love working for them and we already feel like part of the team.
“At a time when the business is engaged with the highest profile, multi-billion-pound projects taking shape across our region and beyond, we’re excited to be the ones who get to tell that story and showcase the people who are making it happen.”
