HRGO plc Builds On Its Branch Network

Kicking off the start of its 55th year of celebrations, national recruiter, HR GO plc, is pleased to announce the first of many new branch openings for the year.

From its humble beginnings with its inception in the front room of a Dartford home, the company has grown into one of the top 55 recruitment organisations in the UK as it stands today with a turnover approaching the &pound100m mark. It started its life as Parkinson Staff Bureau, later known as PSB Recruitment, with its first official branch opening in Dartford, Kent in 1958.

The new branch opening in Sittingbourne builds the Kent HR GO Recruitment network, the largest brand within the HR GO plc group, to seven branches. Jo-Anne Smith is the Kent Regional Director and oversees the seven Kent branches located in Ashford, Canterbury, Chatham, Dartford, Folkestone, Ramsgate and Sittingbourne.

The Kent network benefits from the strength and backing of 30 plus sister HR GO Recruitment branches located throughout the UK. HR GO Recruitment specialises in temporary, permanent and contract positions within a wide range of disciplines, mainly industrial, commercial, driving, food production and warehousing.

Paul Broderick, HR GO plc Managing Director, comments: “Betty Parkinson, the mother of our Non Executive Chairman, Jack Parkinson, founded the company in 1957/1958 after experiencing her first taste of recruitment whilst working at the Dartford Paper Mills.

“Heritage plays a really important role in the longevity and success of a business”, continues Paul. “Essentially it preserves our identity and sets our purpose. Being a family run business for approx. 20 years we have a strong focus on big company resources and small company values which still continues today.” 

The HR GO Recruitment brand is looking to continue to develop and grow throughout this celebratory year.
