Proof that the recruitment industry is growing as the economy recovers

Proof that the recruitment industry is growing as the economy recovers

An east Midlands business based in Nottingham is bucking the economic trend by more than doubling its staff numbers in the last few months.

Aspire People, a recruitment agency for the education sector, has recruited five new consultants to join the original sales team of two in the branch.

Director Michaela Powell said it was a relief to be doing so well as the economy begins to recover from recession.

“It’s obviously a difficult time for the majority of businesses but we are doing well,” Mrs Powell said.

"I saw a gap in the market for recruitment consultants," Mrs Powell said.

"I noticed that experienced, reputable consultants were being made redundant or not being treated respectfully by their company.

"With recruitment agencies around us making cuts, increasing working hours and reducing commission, it was our chance to whip up some new consultants."

Marketing Manager Cherie-Anne Baxter added: "Agencies around us are reducing incentives to cut costs, we have maintained our benefits and as a result retained our staff.

"We have managed to attract specialists from the education sector and talented consultants from other sectors and as a result we have five additional consultants. We now currently help job seekers in the education sector throughout Leicestershire, Coventry & Warwickshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Northampton"

Aspire People operates out of the Conference Block at George Spencer Academy, placing teaching, office and technical support staff in to primary, secondary and SEN schools across the East Midlands. Aspire People hired Adam Cox from Hays, Subita Devi from Reed Education, James Morris from ABC, Alan Hull who previously worked as a teacher and Ricky Bassi who previously worked for Aspire People in the compliance department.
