Having recently taken on new recruits in People & HR, Corporate Development, Product Development, Digital Marketing, Design, Buying, Sales and Customer Service, the business has grown rapidly, seeing their team grow considerably since 2019 as a result.

Stephen Hankinson, Managing Director of Ignition Group, said: “As consumers begin to switch towards greener, more environmentally friendly heating solutions, demand for electric heating products has increased dramatically.

"When we opened our doors in 2013, our aim was to make sustainable heating solutions accessible, affordable, and easy to adopt.

"Recent announcements regarding the ban on new gas boiler installations within new build properties from 2025, alongside the well-publicised global need to transition to a more sustainable means of powering our homes and vehicles, has opened consumers eyes to alternative, more economical methods of heating their homes.”

Now the search for additional, pivotal roles is underway, with Ignition Group looking for skilled individuals to join their Sales team along with additional Customer Support Advisors, Content Writers, Web Developers and Warehouse Operatives to help drive their strategic vision.

People Manager Abi Aldred said: “We are motivated to bring the next generation of talent into the business. All roles are newly created, clearly reflecting our growth and continuous commitment to our customers.”

With a head office in Scotton, Knaresborough and a distribution centre in Thorp Arch, Wetherby, the business continues to add to its winning team, resulting in a range of impressive accomplishments.

Most recently they have been recognised by Feefo for their excellent customer service, having been awarded Platinum status as of 2022.

“The team is at the core of the continued success of Ignition. Our people are engaged with our future vision, demonstrating great passion for the brand, our values and our customers. I am proud of the dedication of this team – the way they pull together to succeed is wonderful to witness,” said Abi.

"In a challenging labour market, where unemployment is lower than in previous years, Ignition Group is on the hunt for the next generation of talent in Yorkshire and aims to establish itself as an employer of choice within the region.

“We are looking for like-minded, motivated, ambitious people who want to join our journey. In my opinion, we are the best kept secret in North Yorkshire – a great employer offering fulfilling work, great benefits, a supportive team and an excellent environment for people to grow professionally.”

Having welcomed 14 new team members in the last six months alone, their focus has been on giving a positive start to new recruits, offering a successful career within the company.

The leadership team support not only the technical training, but also spend time ensuring new staff members can establish important connections with colleagues and build relationships outside of their immediate departments.

David Meadus, Accounts Assistant, who joined the team in January of this year said: “As soon as I met the team at Ignition Group, I knew that I was moving to a positive and successful business. I have been made to feel incredibly welcome by everyone.

"The support I have received has been amazing and the scope for career development has been made really clear to me. I look forward now to progressing my professional studies.
