Assured Recruitment Doubles Workforce In 12 Months

Keele-based professional recruitment consultants sees staff levels increase by more than 100% and reports double-digit revenue growth

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2011) - National executive recruitment consultants, Assured Recruitment Solutions, has doubled its workforce in less than 12 months, as the business continues to successfully place candidates in senior executive jobs, leading to double-digit revenue growth and a demand for more recruitment consultants.

Assured Recruitment employs over 67 people, 33 of which are based at its Head Office in Keele. It also has employees in Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Birmingham and London.

The company was founded in 2006, and began as a team of 3 staff, but has significantly increased this figure as a result of continued success and a series of high-profile account wins, which include both national and local companies and appointments across technology, senior executive jobs and finance, amongst others.

Adam Shaw, MD of Assured Recruitment, believes that the company's expansion is a result of its 'recruiting to culture fit' approach to placing candidates: "We specialise in recruiting for fast-growing, Venture Capital/Private Equity-backed and entrepreneurial-led private companies, and following our success in this market we're experiencing rapid growth too. Companies need to make absolutely certain when hiring, the ambitions of their new people are completely aligned to their own plans. Failing to recruit to culture fit and unite ambition can prove highly disruptive to growth plans."

In line with the current growth of its team, the company is now looking to appoint ten new members of staff by the end of the year to further strengthen its existing team and meet the demand for business. The available positions include trainee, recruitment, senior and managing consultants, as well as account managers. These will be based at the company's Head Office and placed within the Executive, Technology, Business Change and Sales divisions.

Adam says, "We're currently looking for ten new people to join our team by the end of the year, which will allow us to maintain our level of commitment to our clients as we continue to grow at such a fast pace. We've had some fantastic new additions to the team in recent months, and the time has come again to expand on this and welcome more new talent to the business.

"The key challenge we face is quality, not quantity: obviously, the job market is in a state of flux at the moment, reflecting the wider economy. This places an increasing emphasis on identifying the cultural fit of the candidate to our own organisation, a factor which is vital for our success as an evolving firm."

Assured Recruitment has placed candidates for some of the country's leading businesses. The company's client base includes phones4U,, Maplin, Game, and Britannia.

Following several years of rapid growth and profit, Assured Recruitment has recently undertaken an extensive corporate rebrand in addition to adding to its team of professional recruitment consultants, as it prepares to further develop its competitive edge within a buoyant market.
