The employment markets are still challenging across the UK but for Companies wishing to retain or grow their market position securing and retaining top talent is equally challenging as skills gaps are ever widening. Using very clever attraction methods we pool the critical hire targets for our clients using tools and extensive networks that have been built up over many years. When they are ready to hire for their next of growth or a critical replacement, being permanent or contract, we are able to respond to their needs - It keeps our clients ahead of their competition.
FPSG Connect Ltd is part of the new stable of recruitment companies formed under, FPSG, a leading management equity model based recruitment group. Chairman, John Hailstone, says, FPSG Connect was born out of the origins of the business dating back to 1998 - Its now lead by joint Managing Directors, John Agnew and Andrew Spratt backed up by a team of 30 staff based across Glasgow and Edinburgh serving the UK professional markets.
Andrew was instrumental in setting up our IT recruitment capability back in 2000, establishing our reputation for service delivery that led to forging many long term relationships with organisations such as Aegon, Barclays, JP Morgan and National Australia Group. John is also the perfect example of how through hard work, commitment and skill that rising to the top is both aspirational and attainable for anyone joining our group. I hired john as a graduate trainee and within 6 years he rose quickly through the ranks helping establish FPSG as a leading Corporate Banking and Financial Services recruiter in the UK. He lead the team that sourced 85 partner level appointments for Clydesdale Banks UK IFS roll out in 2006 and has been mandated to sourced key director level hires for many of the UKs business banks.

It also incorporates a business services support firm supporting SMEs in all back office functions. Growth across the Group in 2010 has exceeded all expectations with all firms increasing their consultant population due to client hiring demands.
John Hailstone says The first year for FPSG Connect has been excellent and that could be seen in the turn out of a great number of clients for the office launch that I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time. Its very exciting time for everyone in the group
