Staffline acquires Brightwork
Staffline has acquired Brightwork Limited (“Brightwork”), a recruitment business based in Scotland specialising in temporary and permanent jobs in the drinks, warehousing, manufacturing and distribution sectors.
Brightwork has a long and successful history as a multi-sector recruiter for clients across Scotland from offices based in Edinburgh and Glasgow. As previously indicated, the Staffline has been developing its business in Scotland. The acquisition therefore represents an attractive strategic opportunity to increase footprint in this area, strengthening the Group’s geographic reach across the UK, as well as bringing a blue-chip client base. Derek May, chief executive of Brightwork, will continue in his role to lead the business.
The acquisition is expected to be earnings neutral in the current year and is being funded out of Staffline’s existing resources.
Andy Hogarth, chief executive of Staffline, commented, “Staffline is delighted to announce the acquisition of Brightwork. We have been increasing our capability in Scotland in recent years and this acquisition will accelerate the growth of both businesses as it provides scale, as well as greater geographic coverage and value added services. We can offer our clients a greater national service. We very much look forward to working with all the team at Brightwork and to building a great future together.”
