IntaPeople among Wales fastest growing firms for 3rd year in a row
Cardiff-based recruitment firm IntaPeople has capped an impressive year by earning a place on the Wales Fast Growth 50 list for the third consecutive year, winning a special award for sustainability in the process.
The Fast Growth 50 Awards is an annual event that acknowledges the fastest growing independent companies across Wales from a business population of over 200,000. IntaPeople, the largest independent IT recruitment consultancy in Wales, is celebrating its inclusion in the top 50 after seeing its revenues grow from 3,075,000 to 5,070,000 between 2007 and 2009.
It is the fourth time that IntaPeople has been featured on the prestigious list, with the company also winning the award outright in 2000.
Phil Handley, operations director at IntaPeople, said:
It is a testimony to the dedication of our staff members that we have made it on to the Fast Growth 50 list once again. Our staunch commitment to delivering a first-rate service, together with ongoing investment in the latest training practices and technologies, has provided us with an excellent platform for growth.
During the recession we resisted the temptation to make cutbacks, and instead focused on improving the quality of our service across all parts of the business. We believe that this approach gave us an edge in retaining our existing client and candidate base and helped us to form lasting relationships with new ones too.
The fact that we have been presented with a Sustainability Award is testament to the fact that we provide our clients and candidates with a service that constantly puts their needs first.
IntaPeople was presented with the Sustainability Award in recognition of the company making the Fast Growth 50 listings for three years running. This years top 50 businesses had a combined turnover of 546m, and between them created 1,400 new jobs from 2007 to 2009.
All of the Fast Growth 50 firms should be very proud of what they have achieved, Handley said.
It is extremely encouraging for Wales that so many firms are still achieving a healthy turnover and generating new jobs, especially in light of looming Government spending cuts. Whilst it is going to be difficult for the private sector to wholly compensate for job losses in the public sector, it will certainly play a key part in lessening the blow.
The growth of IntaPeoples engineering division has made a significant contribution to its recent success, securing 337% more requirements for the company in the last 12 months. The introduction of its commercial division has also been a significant step for the business, and allowed it to supply a broader range of professionals to new and existing clients.
IntaPeople has said that it will be looking to further expand its services throughout Wales, the UK and Europe over the next year. It also plans to introduce its own training academy in the near future, which will create more structure around the roles of its consultants and present them with a clear path of progression.
