Trenches Law set for jobs boost following 200% revenue increase

We're excited to be recruiting 30 more new team members this year to help meet growing demand for our wayleave, commercial legal services and Code powers expertise .

Great news! We are planning to recruit 30 more employees following a growing demand for our wayleave, commercial legal counsel, and Code powers expertise. This hard work has led to a 200% uplift in revenue.

Throughout 2021, we’ve appointed 25 new recruits to help progress major projects. This has included wayleave automation and legal support for Ogi’s £200 million full fibre project in South Wales. Additionally, a Master Services Agreement between network provider ITS and its wholesalers and resellers.

Our team has launched a service to help commercial clients negotiate wayleave agreements and progress electric vehicle charging installations. Plus, we’ve been able to expand our Hampshire headquarters’ office space.

We’ve also promoted several employees including wayleave manager, Katie Fosten, who has become as Head of Client Services. Colleagues Steve Sawley, Mike Thompson and Sarah Dale have taken up Client Services Manager positions.

Newly appointed duo Kevin Broome and Terry Stent have come in as Client Services Managers. Georgina Rudak also recently qualified as a Solicitor, and has been promoted to Head of Legal.

Next steps to evolve and expand telecoms law expertise

During 2022, we want to launch further services to bolster our clients’ wayleave knowledge. We’re preparing to unveil plans for an additional site in Yorkshire and recruit another 30 employees – bringing our total headcount to 65.

Recently promoted Katie said: “Our organisation is going through a huge period of transformation. It’s exciting to be a part of that and help drive towards further growth in 2022 and beyond.

“I want to continue to build positive and honest partnerships with all our clients so we can ensure that our specialist work is instrumental in the successful roll-out of their key developments.”

Our managing director, Sharon McDermott, added: “Each team member has been instrumental in taking our company to the next level and we’ve got even more exciting plans in the pipeline to further expand our specialist offering.

“We have a group of motivators who have a wonderful rapport with our clients. Our employees’ enthusiasm and expertise will be critical in how we continue to roll-out even more telecoms-based services and technology-first solutions.”
