Rise Group appointments cement growth strategy
Rise Group, one of the UKs fastest growing recruitment company's exclusively dedicated to Scotland, has bolstered its management profile with the appointment of Neil Lafferty as Group Sales Director while affirming Adam Gordon as Director of Hammond Resources.
Mr Lafferty joins Rise Group after working on operational improvement projects across a number of industries. His experience includes senior sales management positions and sales director within contact centres and recruitment including time with Hewlett Packard (Compaq), Kwik-Fit Insurance & Teletech UK/US. His contribution is expected to have an immediate impact on the business.
Gregor Campbell, Group Managing Director, commented: Were delighted to bring Neil into our business. His network, contacts and professional approach to client engagement will be of significant benefit to our company as we continue to grow. We are creating parallel capabilities in Scotland through taking our Rise Jobs brand, already Scotlands leading call centre recruitment business, into Edinburgh and taking our strong Quality Link catering and hospitality division into Glasgow.
Mr Lafferty added: Rises growth has been spectacular since its inception in 2003 but there are plenty of further opportunities available to our business, especially in these challenging economic times. Were looking at further acquisitions, new cities and enhanced growth across all existing brands so its an exciting time to be taking a key role in Rises development.
Hammond Resources became part of Rise group in May of last year and Mr Gordon had been acting as interim head of the business since October. Since then four new consultants have been welcomed on board and Mr Gordon said he was excited about the future potential for the business.
Im convinced of the teams capabilities and growth potential. Were recruiting in areas the Hammond team hadnt previously touched. The Aberdeen markets offering strong rewards, as is management consulting, particularly within the public sector space.
Looking towards new developments, he commented: Weve also introduced an offering for shared service centres which combines Hammonds financial recruitment expertise with the volume recruitment capabilities of the Rise team and this is being warmly received.
