IT specialist RDS Global has become the first sign-up to Derbyshire Institute of Sport’s (DIS) supporters club under an innovative partnership with two recruitment companies. Sky Recruitment Solutions and Capella Professional, both run by local


entrepreneur David Torrington, sponsor the DIS supporters club. David has committed to paying a 12-month membership of the club for all new clients which use either company to recruit an employee. DIS relies on its supporters club members and its sponsors to fund the schemes it runs for Derbyshire youngsters, who have the potential to be world class athletes and future Olympians and Paralympians. Phil Harvey, Managing Director of RDS Global, was delighted with the


service he received when he used David’s companies to recruit a new staff member – and when David told him about the supporters club, it was the icing on the cake. Phil said: “Becoming a member of the DIS supporters club sits very well


with what we are all about; investing in the future of our young people on the IT side and DIS is doing the same for young athletes.” RDS Global runs an academy with Derby College, which was named


Employer Academy of the Year earlier this year. The 17-week placement aims to enhance students’ real-time experiences in the IT sector. The company also has a strong track record in supporting local charities and community groups.
