Ableworld appoints new Board Member and continues to promote internally



The future is looking bright for the Number 1 Mobility retailer in the UK as Ableworld announce internal promotions, new job positions, and a restructure of departments.


As Ableworld enter their 21st year of trading, the retailer has shared their recent internal successes and announcements ahead of their busy Spring and Summer promotions.


The company are looking to the future and have recently announced the appointment of Tonya Page as a new company Board Member. Tonya joined the company as Customer Liaison Officer in 2013 and has worked through the ranks to her latest position because of her skills, commitment and professionalism in both her overall role in Managing Staff and of course the wider issues involved in the business. Tonya will join Ableworlds existing Board members to share her customer service knowledge and to help the company develop.


When looking at the company’s overall staffing levels, over the past twelve months Ableworld have promoted 29 members of staff, equating to 20% of their workforce, and have created an additional 33 new roles within the business. Significant promotions have included Neil Proctor into Senior IT, Systems & Projects Manager, Nicola Hough promoted to HR Manager, and Julie Nurton as Admin/Buying Manager. Within the Marketing Department there have been three promotions, with Ellie Emerton into Senior Marketing Manager, and Rhian Pita and Grace Hughes as Marketing Managers. The company are also set to restructure their Accounts department and are increasing their staff numbers to be able to continue to support their Franchisees and company owned stores.

Across their Cheshire based Head office, their Buying, Operations, Marketing, Customer Liaison and Stairlift teams have all seen new starters who have settled in well to their roles. Also, as a large advocate of developing their Bricks and Mortar stores, the company have invested in a number of additional store roles across their 38 stores, as well as further Engineering roles imminently ready for Spring/Summer trading.


So, whilst others are still talking about cut backs and Redundancies, Ableworld are pleased to say they are moving forward not backwards, shown recently by their power to open stores whilst COVID was still prevalent, and now through their internal staff growth.

As Ableworld move forward, restructure and generally strengthen, they continue to invest in their staff and make opportunities available, and continue to be a significant name in the Mobility industry as they grow their successes even further.
