Ruthless focus pays off at HCIG
At a company level, HCIG’s & lsquo;boutique’ brands continue to grow rapidly, achieving increases in NFI year on year across the board. Ewi, recruiting within the international engineering market achieved a 100% increase in NFI. Other brands within HCIG achieved similar successes:
Proactive – 50% increase
Resourcing Group – 34% increase
Eden Brown Built Environment –70% increase
Caritas Recruitment – 28% increase
RGMS – 79% increase
2014 has been the year of the start-ups at HCIG with the launch of four new businesses, Butler Rose and Financial Resourcing Group within the Accountancy & Finance and Financial Services space and AlphaTec specialising in the engineering sector. AlphaTec set new records by becoming the fastest company to breakeven in HCIG history. We also opened our first healthcare business Apollo Nursing.
Expanding on their national network of offices the Group have opened new bases in two locations, Resourcing Group opening in Brighton and Southampton with exciting plans for Eden Brown to open in Newcastle within the coming weeks.
Group CEO, Tim Cook, commented, "The Group’s success is attributed to the continued strategy of being ruthlessly focused on specialism. You are unlikely to meet a hiring manager that wouldn’t rather speak to an expert or a candidate who doesn’t want to discuss their options with a specialist recruitment consultant. To that end, all our consultants whatever the business are encouraged to be ruthlessly focussed – do less – better. This strategy is paying off as shown by another excellent start to the first half of the year and we looking forward to continuing this outstanding success in the second half of the year."
