IT and Engineering recruitment specialist ARM targets Coventry as part of major expansion programme
One of the UK’s leading technical recruiters, Advanced Resource Managers, (ARM) announces the opening of its new office at Binley Business Park, Coventry, growing both their IT and engineering divisions. Currently based at ARM’s head office in Havant, Hampshire, the launch of the Coventry office marks the start of a major expansion programme by ARM which will initially see further UK offices opening in Aberdeen and London with international locations in the pipeline.
Richard Sutcliffe, ARM’s Regional Manager, will run the Coventry office. A recruitment specialist with a 12 year track record across the Engineering and IT sectors, he will head up an experienced local team of consultants, covering the entire technical arena.
Richard Sutcliffe says of the move: “This is a really exciting opportunity and comes at the right time for ARM. Local businesses and industry have been seeing considerable progress in growing the local economy, attracting investment and overseas growth. We can help support these initiatives and by establishing a team in Coventry we see excellent potential to expand ARM’s specialist IT and engineering provision. The move will also allow us to build on the presence we already have here in the automotive sector and offer those clients a better service. When you consider these factors and where Coventry is geographically, it is a very favourable location for the start of our UK based expansion.”
Les Duncan, Managing Director of ARM UK added: “Coventry is an important expansion opportunity for ARM which we believe will be mutually beneficial. Investing in staff and recruiting talented new employees are key strategies for growth and ARM can bring that expertise to the region.”
ARM was founded in 1996 as a specialist IT and Business recruitment firm and is now one of the UK's major recruitment and talent management consultancies with a turnover of circa £125million. Clients range from blue chip companies to start ups. ARM employs close to 200 staff at its Havant headquarters, working in specialist recruitment divisions including Defence, Aerospace, Power and Energy, Automotive, Rail, Oil and Gas, Marine and Shipping, iGaming, eCommerce, IT Security and Communications.
