New ownership opportunities
Karen Alexander, managing director, Intelligent Resource
2020 marks the beginning of a new and exciting journey for Intelligent Resource. In 2019, we saw our most recent change of ownership. In June last year, the business was acquired by Resource Solutions Group (RSG), which has itself since rebranded as Sanderson Solutions Group. Intelligent Resource remains a wholly owned company and autonomous legal entity within Sanderson, while benefiting from the Group’s sector experience and shared infrastructure support. Former parent company, Sopra Steria, remains a key client of Intelligent Resource.
The beginning of a new decade is the start of a brand new chapter in our company’s history. It is a chance to broaden our opportunities even further and move outside of our comfort zone. We are spreading the message that we excel in more than just core recruitment as we look at the structure of business and strengthen our client solutions team.
With a focus on winning new business as well as extending services to current clients, this strategy already seems to be paying off. In the latter months of 2019, we celebrated several significant client wins. Not least a new partnership with US Fintech brand, Stash, to support the New York-based firm’s recruitment programme as it opens its first UK office.
With our new parent company, we don’t underestimate the value that comes with working with a true expert in our core space, with an intrinsic understanding of our industry. Sanderson is very supportive of our vision, and with its support we are better placed to achieve our goals. Intelligent Resource, however, will very much keep its own identity and ethos despite the new arrangement.
While the company’s core values remain unchanged, our future aspirations and strategy are very much fixed around creating new opportunities while extending solutions for existing clients. Our success and longevity in the market to date can be firmly attributed to not only our attitude and expertise, but also our ability to innovate. The emergence of Intelligent Resource has brought a new name, vision and identity to our operation, but we will never lose sight of what makes us stand apart from the crowd: exceptional people; service excellence; reputation; and passion across every touchpoint.
