Encore Personnel’s thriving engineering division based in Derby has reported a record first six months of growth.
The national recruitment consultancy opened the new engineering division within its established Derby branch in August 2019, as part of a transformational period of expansion for Encore. It endeavoured to complement the existing areas of the business across the East Midlands, working in partnership with clients to deliver a high calibre of recruits within the aerospace and rail network sector.
Since its launch, Encore’s unique skillset and dedication to delivering outstanding results has seen the division win 16 new clients and surpass its forecasted profit by 13.1% in just six months.
Pivotal to this success was the appointment of Divisional Manager, Jim Shelley. With more than 12 years’ experience providing businesses with recruitment solutions, Jim is responsible for managing the new division, whilst strengthening its position and reputation with the local area and market.
Now, as a result of considerable growth, the division has appointed a new Resource Management Specialist to meet demand and is looking to hire a further team member by August 2020.
Jim said: “Encore has developed a strong reputation for providing viable recruitment support for the engineering sector on a national level across its ten offices. Derby is at the centre of the rail and engineering sector and opening a new division in the region was the next step in ensuring Encore continues providing a high level of service, supporting other areas of the business at the Derby branch, to ensure a one stop recruitment solution for new and existing clients in the region.
“The success of the division in just six months is a testament to the hard work of the Encore team but we are keen to expand even further. We have mapped out a concrete growth strategy over the next 12 months and are already hiring new recruits to support increasing demand from clients. It is a very exciting period of development for us.”
