West Midlands firm tackles downturn by expanding

A leading Midlands recruitment agency is tackling the economic downturn by expanding its operations.

Solihull-based KateCo. is opening an office in Stratford-upon-Avon to service companies in the South Warwickshire area such as Warwick, Leamington, Oxfordshire as well as Gloucestershire.

It will be something of a homecoming for Nicki Rainbow, a director of KateCo., who will be taking over as manager of the new office in Windsor Street when it opens on February 2nd.

Nicki, who has been with KateCo. for over six years, was previously with a similar company in the Stratford as an account manager and service provider for temporary and permanent office support staff.

She said: The launch of the Stratford office is an important step forward, especially in the present economic climate.

We believe there is a demand for the high levels of service we supply on a daily basis, and Im sure that my recruitment experience in Stratford upon Avon and surrounding areas will help along the road to success.

Sarah Grace, sales director at KateCo., said: In troubled times like these, there are two things a company can do sit back and wait for it all to blow over, or look for other opportunities to grow the business.

As a forward-thinking company we have decided to take the latter route. Where other agencies may be struggling, we have used the downturn to look at ways we can strengthen the business and this move is part of that strategy.

Its a difficult market but we are concentrating on serving our clients needs, and we recognised that there is a demand for an agency in a vibrant town like Stratford which could serve most of the South Warwickshire business community.

We recognise the challenges that lie ahead but feel that the values and integrity on which KateCo. is built will stand us in good stead for the future.
