HS Direct Stockport Grand Opening

Expansion into a new city bringing more jobs to the local area

We are proud to announce that we have decided to expand into the Greater Manchester area, with a new office at Hazel Grove. We are holding our grand opening on Monday 21st November at 12:30pm. The mayor of Stockport will be arriving to cut the ribbon and we will also have a special guest from local charity Millie’s Trust.

People who attend will receive:

  • 50% off UKATA & IATP Asbestos Awareness courses
  • Free tea, coffee and sandwiches
  • A fantastic networking opportunity with local businesses

We started 12 years ago with just three employees, now we have a team of 85 who assist organisations across the UK with their Health & Safety and employment law requirements. Such is demand for our expertise that we now have 4 offices nationwide.

We offer an open ended income opportunity so some of our employees might earn around £60,000 or more next year which is an incredible wage, added to that every employee is given BUPA cover. We also know how to put on a very good Christmas party!

We are very much a customer focused company and we all look out for each other so we’ll be looking for individuals who are able to add something to what we have already and further strengthen our fantastic team, interested persons can upload their CV on our website www.hsdirect.co.uk

We have already hired our first new recruit locally. We also have opportunities for 10 local people in area such as Admin, Sales, Marketing and Safety consulting.

In addition to looking after its employees HS Direct regularly gives to charity, having donated thousands of pounds to good causes. Recent recipients include Macmillan cancer support, the Cathedral Archer Project and Diabetes UK and Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Expanding into a new area is fantastic news for our clients. It means we are able to provide a local service, allowing customers to easily drop into to our offices to get support with Risk Assessments and Method Statements, as well as CHAS and HR issues. The mayor of Stockport will be arriving to cut the ribbon and we will also have a special guest from local charity Millie’s Trust.

I don't have Microsoft Office or Microsoft Word, what should I do?

If you don't have Microsoft Office, or Microsoft Word installed on your PC or Mac, don't worry - you can still use our products. You can get a free alternative from Open Office.

Open Office Org is open-source developed alternative to Microsoft Office, developed by a large software company called Oracle. Open Source means the company who build the software, allow 100% use of it, 100% free.

Since Open Office is specifically developed to be exactly the same as Microsoft Office, with all the same programs in the suite (Eg: Word, Excel, Access and Power Point) - it will freely open any Microsoft Office file-format. Meaning, just because a document was written in Microsoft Word, doesn't mean it can't be opened in another program. Open Office will do that, and vise versa.

To download and install Open Office;

  1. Go to www.openoffice.org.
  2. On the left hand side, click 'I want to download Open Office'. In the green box, click the main link which starts with 'Start downloading OpenOffice.org...'
    • Windows Only:When the program has downloaded, click Install and wait for the program to install.
    • MAC OSX Only:When the program has downloaded, a notification box will pop up with an arrow from the Open Office Icon to the Applications Folder in Finder, drag the icon to the Applications folder to install the program.
  3. You are now ready to use Open Office, and the documents you have purchased from us.
