BTG Recruitment experiencing record 2014 growth
The specialist financial recruitment consultancy, based in Manchester, has also reported that the team has been instructed on 50% more jobs year on year and has been signed onto 22 new preferred supplier agreements since the start of 2014, highlighting that businesses across the north west are investing in increasing headcount.
In addition to more jobs vacancies being briefed into BTG Recruitment, the business is also attracting more positions from big banks and other larger, blue chip organisations. The team puts their success down to the service that they provide, which includes sourcing and getting to know the best candidates in the region and vetting them thoroughly before putting them forward for a role.
Additionally, BTG recruitment, which was established in 2003, can attribute much of its recent success to Aaron Drewitt, who joined the business as Managing Director almost two years ago.
Commenting on the success of the company so far this year, Managing Director, Aaron Drewitt, said: “We set ambitious growth targets for this financial year and seeing full job boards and recording steady growth gives us the confidence to achieve them. We’re have doubled our headcount this year and have recently promoted two deserving members of staff and this is very much a reflection of how the market is behaving. We need talented, hard working people who are passionate about the industry as we source candidates very carefully, rather than just relying on a large database that might be out of date and with the right people we will continue to see the business grow organically.”
In addition to BTG Recruitment taking on larger volumes of jobs to fill, Aaron and the team are working closely with clients, advising them on revising job specifications to reflect the move from a client-led to a candidate-led market.
Aaron added: “Businesses were in the comfortable position of being able to be very picky about the person they wanted to fill a role until recently. With the renewed market buoyancy they are now having to work hard to really sell roles to candidates, who have a choice of roles to pursue.”
