Resource Management Solutions (RMS) are delighted to be sponsoring the Tees Businesswomen Awards for a second year.
With a female executive management team, RMS recognises the benefits of women in business. Approaching 20 years under the creative vision of owner and managing director Carole Martin, RMS has built a solid reputation for recruiting excellence. With 2019 set to be one of their most successful years to date, they are stronger than ever and have ambitious plans to further cultivate their offering of services across Teesside.
To support their growth strategy, RMS has made two key appointments, Nikki Butt as operations director and Natalie Makari as operations manager.
Nikki brings with her significant experience, having worked across both the HR and recruitment divisions of RMS for the past 15 years. This key appointment recognises the impact hard working women can have in business today. Nikki believes the prime asset of their business is its people – candidates, clients and employees.
She is currently focused on the strategic growth and reputation of the company while supporting the government’s Good Work Plan, a positive step to create a level playing field in today’s labour market.
Carole Martin said: “It gives me great personal pride to see Nikki achieve this welldeserved promotion. Over the last 15 years Nikki has worked throughout each area of the business and created excellent business knowledge with a can-do attitude. This natural step onto the executive team can only strengthen our plans for growth.”
Nikki commented: “Our management team is the strongest it has been, which is evident by some outstanding contract successes in recent months. With 2019 already generating £10m of new business, it’s evident that companies value the flexibility of an outsourced partner, today more than ever.
“I’m truly excited at the future opportunities at RMS and am looking forward to building on the successful platform we have created across the Tees Valley.”
Natalie also shares Nikki’s refreshing enthusiasm and passion for the company and the recruitment industry as a whole, which positions RMS for some busy, yet exciting times.
As two strong female leaders, they have been keen to create a strong culture of empowering success. They believe collaborating and challenging one another breeds their creativity and promotes innovative ideas to boost RMS’s ongoing growth.
Natalie loves communicating and is confident she can find a solution to any problem; a trait RMS clients believe adds great value to their operations. She believes her transparent way of working is key to her success and reputation within the industry.
These key appointments show how women of today can overcome the unique challenges faced in work and business, providing inspiration for the next generation.
RMS provides recruitment support to a breadth of industries which places them in an excellent position to give an update on Teesside’s economic health. And while uncertainty about Brexit is causing some organisations to delay investment, Nikki and Natalie feel there are plenty of reasons to feel positive about the future of the labour market.
“Projects anticipated to come to fruition in the next 12 months will provide a substantial boost to the local labour market,” said Nikki. “With Tees Valley and surrounding areas becoming increasingly recognised as industry hubs for fair trading, we are delighted to hear of projects such as the Tees Renewable Energy plant, Sirius Minerals and, of course, the possibility of Teesport becoming a Free Port.
“These industry-changing projects will bolster the region’s profile and provide many economic benefits to our community.”
“There’s so much opportunity in Teesside,” adds Natalie. ‘We’re in that limbo period at the moment but we’re busy preparing for the future. RMS is ideally positioned to play a major part in providing the labour needed to fuel the area’s future prosperity and we’re extremely excited about the prospect of being part of such industry-changing developments.
“The core of our Darlington operation is servicing the Teesside region and that’s something we’re passionate about growing, especially as we approach our 20th year as a local, independently-owned business.
“We want to be involved in the projects that are coming up so we can help shape the economy. We’ve grown organically from two employees to 34 and that’s set to increase further. Our vision over the next two years is to open another North-East branch. This is where we have our roots and we’re excited to be pushing forward.”
RMS are also delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Regan who has joined the team as their business development consultant.
Matthew forms part of the company’s growth strategy and has already made a positive impact in the role.
Natalie commented: “Matthew is an excellent addition to the team and his role will assist our 2019 strategy for business growth across the North-East.
“His industry experience and business ethics complement our vision for the future, as well as cementing our intention to further develop our client portfolio through transparent business partnerships, whilst delivering a firstclass recruitment service.
“Matthew has many years’ experience in the industry, and his refreshing approach and people skills will only enhance RMS’s excellent reputation. We look forward to sharing our successes as we welcome Matthew into our team.”
RMS will be attending the Tees Businesswomen Awards for a second year and are delighted to be sponsoring the Best Newcomer category. It’s clear from their operational structure and durability in such a reactive industry that they share the Tees Business passion for the female entrepreneurial spirit.

Recruiting for the day or looking for a long-term strategy?
Many businesses have the view that recruitment agencies are there to pick up the phone and backfill for absence with temporary labour.
Some businesses utilise agencies for volume recruitment or one-off projects – and that’s where it ends. For some agencies and businesses, this is enough for their requirements.
RMS offers a different approach which has been developed and enhanced over the last 20 years.
The RMS approach is a flexible outsourced infrastructure, with a management team that understands the employee lifecycle is not just about recruitment; their managed services combine recruitment and payroll with HR, providing a service designed to complement the whole employment cycle.
Operations director Nikki Butt says their workforce solutions are based on tried and tested methodologies, gained through experience and best practice.
“Every solution we develop combines proven process with a bespoke focus to maintain or improve profitability and efficiency,” she says.
“We provide clients with the opportunity of owning an outsourced workforce solution that is fully integrated, driven by expertise and offering a competitive edge that adds real value.”
Due to their successes, and the TUPE of hundreds of employees under various terms and conditions, combined with company benefits, RMS have successfully maintained and managed the complexities that come with high profile sites, which Nikki says demonstrates how they can quickly respond to changing requirements and perform to the highest levels.
