2015 has been a remarkable year for specialist recruiter Parkside Recruitment. Consultant Headcount has grown 24%, a new division for Financial Services and Insurance was launched in August which is going from strength to strength, and they have delivered record turnover and revenues, up 20% on prior year; not bad you might think……………
However, not willing to stop there the leadership team have even greater expectations for 2016. January sees the launch of a new office in Reigate, giving the business greater coverage for clients and candidates in the Surrey, Sussex and Kent geographies. As of the 4th January, you will be able to discuss your requirements with the new team of 6 led by Divisional Manager Nick Tagg.
The new recruits are:
Sam Lewis Office Professionals
Elanor Fitzgerald Office Professionals
Helen Agar Accounting and Finance
Paul Goodliffe Accounting and Finance
Nastassia Carroll Financial Services Insurance
Victoria Barnard Financial Services Insurance
‘I am delighted to welcome our new recruits to the business as we continue the development of the Parkside Recruitment brand. The opening of an office base in Reigate is driven by fantastic opportunity and the desire we have to work more closely with established and new clients and candidates throughout the Southern Home Counties’ – Nick Tagg – Divisional Manager
In addition to their coverage of the South of England the team are also determined to stretch the net wider and take their service led business model further North within the UK.
February will see Frances Brennan; currently Divisional Manager for Finance in Uxbridge, relocating to Leeds to launch the first, of what is hoped many, new office locations in the North East of England. Frances has led her current team to a record breaking year, however the opportunity of returning to her Yorkshire roots and the exciting prospect of a new network has proven too much of a lure to keep her in the South. Interviews are currently taking place in Leeds, so if you know anyone looking for a new opportunity………………..
‘The opportunity to lead the North East Region of the Parkside Recruitment brand is very exciting. I am very much looking forward to recruiting, training and mentoring new consultants in our Leeds office and developing them into another record breaking and highly successful team, that will also deliver excellent service of the highest standard to both our clients and candidates.’ – Frances Brennan – Divisional Manager
Both new offices will offer a range of solutions including; Search & Selection, Permanent Placement, Contract Solutions and Interim and Temporary staffing. As well as providing these traditional recruitment offerings Parkside are also well versed in delivering Managed Outsource Services and RPO solutions, which they believe will add intrinsic benefits to numerous business within its target market.
