CPS flies Welsh flag as best place to work
The Cardiff-based firm was the only Welsh company included in the 2014 list and supports the company’s ambitious growth plans over the next 12 months.
In 2013, the fast growth 50 company doubled its headcount to 24 and CPS continues to build on its own employment benefits – recently achieving Investors in People status and investing £80,000 in internal training and development.
CPS is a leading employer in Wales, with the average length of service at 3 years, the business also works closely with the five universities to provide graduate opportunities, with five graduates currently employed.
CPS Group has seen a 30% year-on-year revenue increase for 2013/14 and turned over £7m in the last 12 months.
Spencer Symmons, director at CPS Group said of the Best Workplace accolade, “It’s fantastic to be ranked in the top 25 of best places to work in the small business category, as two-thirds of our score comes from an employee survey, it shows us that what our staff policy works and engages our employees. We have spent over 10 years building a strong reputation and being placed 18th in this year’s list is a proud moment.
“The last year has seen CPS confirm its standing as Wales’ top recruiter for Information Technology, Procurement and Engineering and we are excited about what the future holds for us as a business, especially as we are expanding our recruitment presence and set to open an office in London this summer. We will continue to match our clients’ requirements with candidates who not only match the experience needed, but also have the attitude and personality to fit with the client’s company culture. This is what sets us apart.”
As part of the Great Place to Work small business ranking, CPS Groups joins other growing recruitment businesses such as Futureheads Recruitment, Career Moves Group, Jobwise, Interim Partners and Zenopa.
