Yorkshire recruiters merge
Nicholas Associates, claims that with the addition of financial and creative recruitment services that Trinity brings to its portfolio, it can now satisfy virtually every recruitment requirement to all sectors.
Director, Paul Brammer, said, “The deal is very much a meeting of minds. Trinity is a superb boutique firm whose management team has longstanding client relationships based on delivery, trust and integrity - which fits perfectly with our company culture and ethos. With the knowledge and specialisms the team at Trinity will bring to Nicholas Associates, we can bring clients a greater breadth and depth to the existing offer.
“The more capability we have, the greater our ability to partner employers on the whole company life cycle, from inception through growth and development to succession management or buyout – as well as working with their partner companies along the chain that brings the product or service to market.”
According to Brammer, Nicholas Associates has always sought to bring more than just the right people to its clients. It establishes long-term, often embedded, partnership relationships to deliver guidance, organisational and talent development and management across the entire HR spectrum and beyond – helping implement and deliver all personnel disciplines, as well as many additional consultancy services.
For example, it is a pioneer in the delivery of bespoke recruitment software platforms – it holds 42% of the national market for systems that manage school work experience placements – robotics and automation consultancy and apprentice brokerage.
Brammer continued, “The strategy is to make clients more efficient, profitable and sustainable through raised productivity delivered by motivated staff who benefit from a wide range of industry-leading training and development, career progression and benchmarking packages. Trinity is an excellent fit for our business as it has the same ethos and outlook.”
