Previous Employment.

After leaving school in 1978, Stuart Mills commenced employment with Telephone Rentals Ltd, where a four year craft apprenticeship was completed. During the 1980’s & 1990’s  privatisations, take-overs, mergers and acquisitions within the communications business sector resulted in Telephone Rentals PLC being bought by Cable & Wireless, then merged with Mercury communications. Between 1990–1993 employment continued with Mercury Communications Ltd, then in 1993 following partial restructuring and sell-off, employment was transferred to Blick Time Systems from 1993–1998. After further regional and management restructuring and then redundancy,  SM Services was established in February 1999.
