Recruitment sector growth drives expansion for The Staffing Group
Launching on September 16, ep professional is the first dedicated professional services recruitment service from The Staffing Group. ep professional will specialise in middle management and operational staff and cover permanent, temporary and interim employment.
The Staffing Group is the 42nd largest business of its kind in the UK and is projected to achieve a turnover of £230m by 2016.
Jeremy McGrail, Group Managing Director of The Staffing Group, expects greater growth in this sector. He says: “The recruitment market is constantly evolving and our 23 plus years of experience, which we feel makes us experts in people, means we’re able to make decisions based on decades of industry and sector knowledge to tailor our offering to meet industry demand. ep professional further cements our investment in people, which is what has always made us a trusted partner for our clients and candidates.”
ep professional is led by 20 consultants, some of whom are CIPD qualified, with a combined 150 years of experience who will place candidates in roles across the UK, operating from The Staffing Group’s Birmingham flagship office, which is set to double in size with new talent to strengthen its already established teams. ep professional will also operate from The Staffing Group’s Derby and Walsall offices.
Setting itself apart from the competition, the new ep professional website aims to save candidates time and enhance user experience with features such as live chat, which will connect candidates directly with qualified industry experts who can offer career advice and guidance. Candidates will also have the advantage of the fully online service up until the vetting stage, making the process a lot more simple and user friendly.
Director Deb Pettingill says: “We’re so confident in our service offering that in the rare event a candidate earning £30,000 or over should leave within the first three months of starting the role, we will replace them for free. In addition, ep professional will donate £100 directly to our client’s charity of choice for successful placements made over £30,000.”
