Catch Defies & lsquo;Tough Market’ with 32% Growth
Momentum builds for IT recruitment specialist after year of progress
Catch Resource Management, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of ERP resources, is celebrating one of its best years yet, with its 2012 turnover up by 32% on 2011, bringing it to £7.5 million, with operating profits up 42%.
The IT recruitment specialist’s success continues with record trading figures for January 2013.
Catch has enjoyed steady growth over the 12 years since it was founded. However, momentum built in 2012 with a series of new developments including a string of new clients and investment in strengthening the firm’s commitment to supplying SAP, Oracle and Java trained professionals.
This has led to the expansion of teams dedicated to these areas of business and the subsequent doubling of the entire Catch workforce, prompting a move to new purpose-built offices in Farnham, Surrey. The firm also achieved the milestone of having 100 contractors out concurrently during the year.
New wins have included exclusivity agreements for the supply of JD Edwards resource to Beoley Mill Software and an entire Microsoft Dynamics AX team for Kuoni GTS.
“We set aggressive targets for 2012, especially for such a tough market and so are especially delighted to have attained these. We believe these results are an indication that our aim of bringing a new professionalism to mid- to senior-level IT recruitment is being achieved. This is thanks to the hard work talent and market expertise of our teams – and, of course, to our clients,” says Catch sales director Graham Poll.
