The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) and Simon Acres Group Ltd (SAGL) have formed a strategic partnership to support recruitment and training within the bathroom industry.

SAGL will become the BMA’s recruitment partner, providing BMA members and their retailers direct access to current bathroom vacancies, which will be listed on the BMA website.

BMA Chief Executive Tom Reynolds said, “We are delighted to be partnering with SAGL in this way.  Linking the two organisations will bring substantial benefits to our members and promote the importance of training and education for our sector.

“The support that SAGL can provide will help our members navigate the current skills shortage and offers smart solutions to support those looking for new roles.

“We will also be working together to champion training and education with a common commitment to doing all we can to ensure that our industry retains its skill base, and that we have enough opportunities for people to upskill and access training.”

The BMA will present at KBB Birmingham with SAGL in March 2022 and SAGL are supporting BMA at their AGM in June 2022, having been confirmed as the first Gold sponsor for this event.

Simon Acres added, “This partnership represents an exciting opportunity for both companies and will enable us to support those looking for new positions, or to further their careers in the bathroom industry. 

“It represents a new era of recruitment solutions for the KBB industry.  We share many common values with BMA, and believe that the best way to deliver tangible results and drive forward common goals, is to work together.”
