Encore Personnel appoints Leeds business development manager
Encore Personnel has appointed a new business development manager with 23 years of experience in the recruitment sector to join its Leeds office.
Hailing from Wakefield, Joe Burrows previously worked for Huddersfield-based recruitment agency Major Recruitment.
Burrows said, “I’m delighted to join the Encore team. I have been working in the industry since 1993 and specialise in industrial, logistical and skilled and technical recruitment.
“I’ve been really impressed with Encore as a company and their training programmes and internal incentives are what attracted me to the agency.
“This is a really exciting time to join Encore. The business is rapidly expanding and reaching out to new geographical areas.”
Karen Haywood, Leeds area manager for Encore, said, “We are delighted to welcome Joe - his local knowledge and industrial expertise are already proving to be a real asset to the company.”
Encore’s Leeds branch has been open for almost three years and employs a team comprising five members of staff.
Haywood added, “Having Joe on board will be a real boost to the office and help the business to grow and expand into Yorkshire for our managed service division. In three years we have grown this division from two clients to 13, all in the Midlands, so we are now concentrating on Yorkshire.”
Specialising in the industrial, technical, transport and energy recruitment sectors, Encore turned over £53.1m in 2015 with net profits up by 14%.
