Pertemps acquires Red Personnel
Established commercial recruitment agency Red Personnel is the latest company to be acquired by Pertemps Recruitment Partnership, part of the Pertemps Network Group.
The central London-based business, formed in 2005, is an innovative agency offering the highest calibre temporary and permanent staffing solutions to various industries including banking and finance, construction, education, legal, medical and PR and marketing.
Consultants at Red Personnel have a combined experience of more than 75 years and the company will be a welcome addition to the ever-growing Pertemps family.
Carmen Watson, chairperson of Pertemps Ltd, said, “I am delighted to welcome the management and employees of Red Personnel to the Pertemps family who have joined at an exciting time for the business. Our new brand is driving forward our ambitious growth strategy and this acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to continually improve the recruitment solutions we are able to provide.”
Jamie So, head of Pertemps London and newly appointed director of Red Personnel, added, “Recent press coverage showed the recruitment industry at a 12% growth in permanent placements and 2% on temporary and contract placements. Interestingly, our London branch and Red are out-performing these statistics and are enjoying their most successful year to date in 2013.”
Jamie further commented on his delight at James Bishop, who has achieved incredible success within Pertemps, being promoted into a more senior role at Red Personnel.
