5th February 2024

Today, the Advance TRS Group celebrates a pivotal milestone. In a move that expands our service portfolio, we proudly announce the launch of CITILINE Limited, specialist Telecommunications and M&E recruitment consultancy.

Under the visionary leadership of Ben Shayegan, former Head of Telecoms and M&E at Advance TRS, CITILINE is set to revolutionise the ever-evolving industry landscape with unrivalled expertise, insight, and a network of highly skilled technical professionals. It is the product of ten years’ experience, passion, and a dedication to delivering the very highest quality service for the UK’s built environment.

A decade of dedication

Ben joined Advance TRS as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in 2014. With an impressive understanding of the UK’s technical sectors and incredible ability to build strong, trustworthy relationships, he quickly ascended through the ranks. His decorated career showcases an unwavering commitment to go beyond. It is this which has driven the establishment of CITILINE.

Of the launch, Advance TRS’ Managing Director, Andy Ridout said:

‘I have worked with Ben for the last decade, serving as his mentor during the very early days of his career and then a friend. I feel an immense sense of pride surrounding this achievement. CITILINE is an invaluable addition to the Advance TRS Group. It will have such a positive impact on the industry. I have every faith in Ben’s leadership, and I am thrilled to see what the future holds.’

CITILINE and its customers will benefit from the Group’s established processes with the added energy and agility of a newly emerging SME. This means guaranteed assurance for new and existing clients, candidates, and contractors from day one.

‘I am incredibly excited to move on to this next chapter and introduce CITILINE to my extensive network. This venture would not be possible without them,’ said Ben. ‘Thank you to all who I have had the opportunity to work with over the last ten years. I very much look forward to continuing our relationship and the many more successful years ahead.’
