Mark McFall, group managing director of Change Recruitment, said, “This year our focus is about growth and transformation and guaranteeing a better client and candidate experience. We are positioned as the listening partner our clients turn to time and again as they return to growth. Our client’s main concerns are quality and trust, and the experienced team we have gathered together is enviably placed when it comes to delivering the candidates they need in the timeframe required. Change Recruitment Group is in a better place now than it has ever been.”
These newly created positions mark another milestone in an evolutionary year for Change Recruitment Group, which will see headcount grow by 20-25% across the 65-strong group, spread between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Over the coming financial year, the business will also move its expanding Edinburgh team to new premises, launch new specialisms and reach into new markets – all moves dictated by market upturn, and heightened demand.
