A business development specialist with experience in apprenticeships and further education has joined utilities and construction training specialist Develop Training Limited (DTL).
James Evans from Leicester has been appointed as Business Development Manager based at DTL’s Derby training centre, one of seven that the company operates across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
In his new role, James will be responsible for managing key accounts, including major utility and construction companies, performing training skills analyses, matching DTL’s training courses to customer needs, promoting apprenticeships and offering bespoke courses.
James said: “I am excited to be joining DTL and eager to make an impact straight away, giving my accounts a thorough analysis of their training needs. I’m looking forward to learning new skills and sectors at the same time as being able to bring both DTL and the companies we work with my knowledge of training and apprenticeships.”
Before joining DTL, James spent nine years as business development manager at an FE college where he was responsible for the quality and delivery of various sectors, managing a team of assessors as well as marketing apprenticeships across a range of sectors. Prior to that, he was an trainer assessor with a private training provider.
