Redline Group: new year, new office, new hires
Building on the previous year’s 23% growth, Redline continues to invest in new staff to add to its 45 strong team, also acquiring the office next door to accommodate the six new hires and further planned growth. The additional space is already rapidly filling up and creates further meeting rooms for Clients and Candidate interviews, in addition to useful meeting areas for the expanding team of Consultants.
October, November and December continued to be exceptionally busy for Redline with new and existing Clients aggressively updating their 2015 recruitment plans. Redline has expanded its Contract, Permanent and Admin/Support team to maintain its high levels of success which saw offer-acceptance ratio rise to just under 90% in 2014, an exceptional performance in the skills-scarce, uber-competitive high-technology sector. &emsp
