Encore Personnel, the specialist recruitment firm, has today announced the strategic launch of Encore Interim. The new division marks the next phase in the firm’s ambitious development plans and will focus on supplying dedicated senior management recruitment solutions across a multitude of industries and functions.
Following a £250,000 investment, Encore Interim will be pivotal to driving and strengthening the firm’s senior management position within the recruitment market, while opening up new business and growth opportunities. The division will also complement Encore’s existing business as an established market leader within temporary blue-collar recruitment, offering an enhanced service to the needs of Encore’s clients.
Greg Latham, Group Chief Executive at Encore Personnel said: “The recruitment market is evolving and to ensure we remain a market leader, we have recognised the need to shape our offering and invest in new solutions to meet our strategic growth plans. Over the past 12 months, we have developed into new areas of business and announced a new senior structure to ensure our ambitious business objectives are met. As a result, we are seeing an increase of 10% to turnover if compared to last year, despite today’s challenging climate.
“The new division is the latest phase in our five-year business plan and will be fundamental to strengthening our future position within the senior management recruitment industry, opening up new prospects for growth acceleration. It will ensure we are delivering an excellent recruitment solution for all our clients, while delivering unrivalled results.”
Encore Interim will be led by newly appointed, Phillip Machell. With 28 years’ experience specialising in interim recruitment, having worked at global recruitment consultancy, Michael Page Executive Recruitment and national recruitment provider, Capita Executive Recruitment, Phillip has built an excellent reputation within the industry, delivering unmatched solutions for international and national clients.
Phillip will be predominately based out of Encore’s Derby office and is charged with successfully driving forward the strategic growth of the division in line with Encore’s overall development plans. He will also be responsible for enhancing the consultancy’s reputation to have it recognised as a major player within the industry.
Phillip added: “Encore has already seen some success in the interim field, but it is important to extend and enhance the offering, to not only bolster the service but to ensure a dedicated team is in place, with the expertise and knowledge to drive excellence for our clients.
“Encore Interim’s growth plans will be developed in line with Encore’s overall business objectives. Following an investment in a new senior management structure earlier this year, Encore has adapted and planned accordingly to ensure it will be meeting the highest level of service for clients and is now in its strongest position yet to develop and support the new division.”
