RECORD RECRUITMENT; BIG TALK.
Now Lanarkshire-based Unitec Corporation is doubling its workforce because its work is so much in demand.
A recruitment drive is under way and, when complete, staff numbers will rise to a healthy 35.
The jobs bonanza is part of a pounds 600,000 investment and comes just three years after Unitec was set up.
Unitec helps companies develop their communication skills and is the brainchild of managing director David Munro.
This includes changing the way management deal with their employees. Unitec also provides advice to companies on a range of personnel issues, makes videos and publishes books on computer and personnel themes.
DAVID, 37, whose background in marketing has been instrumental in ensuring the firm's growth, says he wants Unitec to double in size every year.
He said: "We deliver many of the information services which large organisations need to stay competitive in today's challenging business environment.
"Our latest investment will allow us to take the company on to a whole new level."
Unitec has now amassed a total of 150 clients, which include the Royal Bank of Scotland and Perth- based insurer General Accident.
Applications for jobs at Unitec have come from various parts of Britain and from as far away as Canada and Australia.
Tele-sales and field sales opportunities currently exist at Unitec.

No safe options
Half the UK workforce is suffering from job insecurity, according to a new survey. Recruitment experts at Hays Accountancy Personnel found that 47 per cent of people who took part in the survey feel there is no security in their current positions. Even qualifications do not enable people to feel safe.
In addition, people still prefer permanent jobs to contract work. Despite the widespread availability of temporary contracts and the flexibility it offers to employees, 63 per cent would still prefer to have a permanent job, rather than work on a contract basis.
MY FIRST JOB
Camp telly compere Dale Winton, 40, is the new game show king.
The presenter of Pets Win Prizes and Supermarket Sweep will score a hat- trick as the new host of National Lottery Live from December.
Actually, Dale wanted to work in the music business
He said: "If I could have had my choice, I would have been Dusty Spingfield."
To get closer to the music, though, he got a job at HMV in Oxford Street, in London. He explained: "In those days, they used to shrink- wrap records. I worked the shrink-wrap machine.
"The theory was - `okay Dale, you have had a good education, you want to be in the music business, you'll start at the bottom and you will work your way up'.
"Three months into it I went round to the pub one lunch time and there was a pub disco.
"I thought disc jockeys were only on radio and, for me, that's how my showbiz career started."
