The Best Connection Group Acquires CPA Recruitment

The Best Connection employment group, which provides flexible workforce solutions to the industrial, driving, warehouse & distribution, retail and healthcare sectors, has acquired permanent recruitment business, CPA Recruitment.  London-based CPA specialises in providing search and selection, advertising and executive search services to a range of blue chip and independently owned businesses spanning ambient, chilled and frozen food & beverage categories.

As part of the group’s strategic growth plans, the directors have sought to gain market share in an additional sector which has resulted in the acquisition of CPA Recruitment.

“CPA represents an opportunity for the group to diversify into permanent recruitment with a quality, market-leading brand.  As such, CPA boasts a long-established reputation and has the scope to become a much larger enterprise.  To achieve this, we intend to invest in the resources and personnel with the aim of growing the business significantly over the next five years,” said Neil Yorke, director, The Best Connection.

Founded 25 years ago by Clive Palache, CPA Recruitment has developed into a market-leading business in its niche sector by providing recruitment and resourcing solutions throughout the food manufacturing industry.  “We have now united with The Best Connection in the spirit of true partnership in order to take the business to the next stage of progression. This is proving to be a powerful alliance with all on board making a great effort to integrate, develop, grow and achieve – everyone is enjoying a positive partnership,” Palache commented.

CPA Recruitment has a long-standing team which is led by James Wilkins, managing director, who has been based at the business’ Hendon office for the past 14 years. 

"CPA has a good structure, modus operandi and successful business model which we intend to build on.  With investment and support from The Best Connection, we will be developing similar operations through an expansion programme that will include new branch offices," added Neil Yorke.

The Best Connection, which celebrated its 20th anniversary, last year, operates 63 branches throughout the UK.  The company supplies 12,500 temporary workers per week and services over 8,500 clients.  Job creation is focused at a local level through local branches and as a result the company has become a major recruitment conduit to local communities through job centres.
