They have a whopping 230 years recruitment experience between them and ambitious plans to hit the £20 million turnover mark. They need great people to do this, and once they hire them they keep them with a wonderfully low turnover of staff. This is a business you'll stay with and be happy and successful for your tenure.

There is HUGE scope for growth. Our Credit division currently sits at 20% the size of our Payroll division for example with similar market sizes (and plenty of shared clients), giving an idea of quite how large this team could grow to over the coming years.
