BRG turnover rises to £65m in 2017
Berry Recruitment Group (BRG) has revealed a turnover of £65m in 2017 – up £3m on the previous year.
The recruiter also recorded an increased gross profit of just under £13m, and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of £1.75m. The company also generated a net cash inflow from operations of £1.73m.
The privately-owned family business has grown organically but has also made acquisitions, including the purchase of Joy Recruitment in South East London in October.
BRG chairman, Tony Berry, is the former head of Blue Arrow and Manpower, and deputy chairman Ian Langley is also chairman of $1.2 billion turnover Airswift Holdings.
Berry (pictured) said, “Again we have seen growth throughout the business – both organically and through acquisition.
“Our turnover has more than doubled in the last six years and we are planning further significant growth this year – and already we are recording profits above targeted levels.
“We are a privately-owned company that offers a flexible and local service that treats its customers with total respect.
“The demand for our services continues to increase and the job market remains buoyant.
“We invest heavily in our own staff with training and incentives and focus on customer communication throughout the business.
“The size of our branch network and our financial strength are the envy of many of our competitors.”
