Throughout the UK agency demand has been decreasing, yet Galaxy Personnel has been successful in gaining market share throughout East Anglia in their specialist sectors – agricultural, construction and industrial.

The local recruitment agency, based in Norfolk, has seen its turnover increase by 50 per cent in the last year and has consistently grown its client base in the last few months. Permanent placements have doubled and the agency has exceeded all of its anticipated targets.

The recruitment specialists have recently won large contracts as well as retaining current clients now making them the largest service provider of staff to the agricultural sector in their area. This strong achievement is down to professionalism, reputable high service levels, in-depth understanding of the changes in legislation – including how these changes affect their clients - and an unprecedented level of compliance.

Peter Blackmur, joint founder and managing director of Galaxy Personnel, a Jark Joint Venture company, said: “I believe we are the number one specialist in the area because of our backing from a national recruitment company (Jark plc) that helps to increase our capability levels as a business. For example, we have access to a knowledgeable and experienced HR department who support us fully with their breadth of expertise.  Whilst we are backed by a national agency, we remain local enough to understand our clients’ needs and the areas they operate in.

“My business has high up-to-date compliance levels because of our structure, processes and knowledge in this difficult and constantly changing market place. We are the agency of choice for our clients because of our strong service levels, dedication and the expertise that we offer.

“All of these factors allow me to continue to develop the business in such a competitive market and aid my ambition for Galaxy Personnel to remain the largest specialist in the area.”

As the business has exceeded all expectations and forecasts for the year they have recently been able to invest in strengthening their team with new consultants. The new appointments will support the increase in contracts that have recently been won and maximise the day-to-day support given to clients.
