BPS Expand With Hinton Lea Acquisition

Global and Local Recruitment Process Outsourcing company BPS Europe have today announced the acquisition of Hinton Lea Associates, recruitment specialists in the IT & Tech, engineering & Nuclear, automotive, and sales & marketing industries. The acquisition will see the Hinton Lea team amalgamated into the divisions at BPS, to create a stronger delivery capability and offer a broader range of recruitment solutions to clients.

Simon Conington, Managing Director said, “Whilst BPS and Hinton Lea offer different recruitment solutions there is a common theme in terms of the technical and professional sectors we support, and most importantly, a shared set of values in our & lsquo;people first’ ethos. Our clients told us they wanted a more integrated approach which, following the acquisition, we now have the capability and scale to deliver on a range of challenging assignments, both in the UK and overseas.”

BPS Europe and Hinton Lea have both enjoyed success throughout challenging financial times. BPS Europe reported a turnover of &pound11.1 million in the year 2011/12, and Hinton Lea &pound2.3 million. With a combined team in place, the predicted turnover for 2012/13 is &pound16 million. The company expects their newly combined team to continue to grow, and plan to employ another 10 to 15 consultants by the end of the financial year.

BPS Europe will become BPS World following the acquisition, which Conington says signifies their global capability and exciting plans for growth. “We want to offer around 450 people the opportunity to join the organisation over the next 3-5 years, and in response to client need, we also want to establish an international footprint of offices throughout the UK, Europe and NA. This is very much bucking the trend in a recession, but we believe that by bringing the shared ambitions, talent, product set and clients together, it is made possible.”
