Leeds recruitment specialist records impressive growth
The firm, which is supported by international accountancy firm Mazars, was launched in Leeds by entrepreneurs Richard Dobson and Michael Warburton.
Plans are currently underway to extend TSA’s current offices at Sandford Lodge, Bridge Road in Kirstall to accommodate the growing business. This is expected to complete in January 2016. In the same month TSA plan to open a Nottingham office with further plans to open a London office in 2017.
TSA is a specialist recruitment firm for the construction, property and engineering sectors. With a nationwide clientele Michael and Richard have grown the business from a £0-£15million turnover in three years, with forecast turnover set to increase at the year end to £17million.
TSA currently employs 21 staff members which includes three new recent appointments of Johnny Dawkins as a Senior Consultant, Zohya Caan, Senior Consultant and Catherine Scutts as Principle Consultant.
Richard Dobson, Director at TSA said: “Growth has always been a key driver of our five year plan and as part of this we are expanding our presence in Leeds and beyond with the Nottingham and London offices. We have outgrown our current office but our extension plans will give us much needed additional space and allow us to remain at Sandford Lodge.
“Michael and I worked previously for a PLC business and setting up our own business three years ago has given us great freedom. It has been a humbling experience and I feel privileged to be part of an extraordinary team that has established a business of choice working for select clients and candidates making TSA an outstanding recruitment partner.
“Our relationship with Mazars is very good. Shaun and the team have a highly consultative approach and really took the time to understand the intricacies of our business. We started working with them this year and have found the personal approach they provide to be really refreshing.”
Shaun Mullins, Audit & Advisory Partner at Mazars said: “The team at TSA have established a great reputation in their industry and enjoyed phenomenal success over the last three years. This is a very exciting stage of the company’s development and we are delighted to support them on this journey of growth as they look to expand and open new offices.”
In addition to announcing its focus on growth, TSA has enjoyed significant success as a winner of Yorkshire Post Excellence in business awards 2014 and shortlisted in 2013.
