Impellam Group launches specialist brand
By merging UK brand, Carlisle Managed Solutions, with US counterpart, Guidant Group, the newly combined brand will offer clients an even wider portfolio of services and capabilities at an international level.
Having almost doubled its turnover since 2011, the business in the UK provides clients in sectors such as energy and utilities, business services, air transportation, manufacturing, hospitality, retail, insurance, local and central government with temporary and contractor managed recruitment services and full recruitment process outsourcing solutions.
The creation of this new brand will build upon this growth to become a truly international partner to clients, creating an international capability in recruitment process outsourcing and managed service programmes. Guidant Group’s diverse product and service capabilities, and the joint expertise of its international teams, will enable clients to mobilise their recruitment programmes across continents.
Melanie Forbes, managing director, UK & Europe at Guidant Group commented, “As the economic recovery takes hold and a record number of people are already in employment, staff demand is increasing. We’re moving back to an environment where the candidate is in the driving seat and the war for talent is hotting up. Yet ambitious business growth plans are out of step with this candidate driven market. Our clients tell us they need the flexibility to be able to source, recruit and manage talent overseas across borders to keep pace with these trends and grow their businesses. Guidant Group was formed in direct response to this.”
Today’s announcement will see Guidant Group become an international brand with 230 employees serving the recruitment needs of 60 businesses across a wide range of industry sectors across the UK, US, Canada and Mainland Europe.
Andrew Zarkadas, managing director, Guidant Group North America concluded, “As a pioneer in the managed service and recruitment outsourcing industry, globalising our offering under a familiar name provides our current and prospective customers with the ability to meet their global talent demands with confidence. Our vision and values for the new Guidant Group are built around taking complex challenges and bringing simple and clear services to our customers.”
The UK headquarters will be situated in Devonshire Square, London and the US headquarters are situated in Atlanta, Georgia.
