Recruiter celebrates 20 years of trading

Recruiter celebrates 20 years of trading
North West based Scantec Personnel, one of the UKs leading recruitment agencies, is celebrating 20 years of trading this month.
Scantec is rated in the top 100 recruitment agencies in Britain and top 10 for technical recruitment. Founder John Robinson said it is a massive achievement.
We are really proud that we have been trading for 20 years, he said. Peter Bates and I set up the firm in 1990 and have constantly driven the business forward. In 2003, we implemented an ambitious five-year plan, which saw our turnover grow to more than 60m. In 2006 we moved into our purpose built headquarters and this has seen the business also grow in turnover and in staff.
In November last year Scantec introduced management changes to the business, which resulted in founder John Robinson becoming Chairman and joint founder Peter Bates the Managing Director.
The strengthening of the management team gave the business a structure to help with our desire to build turnover to 100m over the next five years, he said. Adam Spelman was promoted to main board director and Colin McNeil to divisional director, which renewed our determination and focus to grow. This will contribute to our plan to become one of the top 50 UK recruitment agencies within the next five years.
To celebrate the event Scantec organised a celebratory get-away for its staff to Puerto Banus in Spain for an all expenses paid four day break. All Scantec employees stayed at the Andalucia Plazza Hotel where the staff enjoyed champagne and a gala dinner.
We have weathered the recession a lot better than most within our industry and we wanted to reward the hard work all the staff have shown throughout our 20 years. Mr. Robinson said.
We want to continue growing and recently sponsored the Shanghai Expo to develop our international links after a 60pc rise in our overseas division during quarter one of this year. Also, in 2009 we signed a five year deal with the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) a long standing client. We are determined to build on that success and the general solid performance of the business this year, particularly in the overseas and green engineering sector.
