News: Stafforce reports strong growth in Bradford

By

The Bradford branch of Rotherham recruitment specialist, Stafforce has reported significant growth in 2013.

With a head office on Percy Street in Rotherham town centre and over 150 staff in a UK-wide network of 27 sites, Stafforce offers a range of services to clients through its Stafforce Recruitment and Nicholas Associates brands.

Stafforce Recruitment continued its strategic development programme with the acquisition of Relay Recruitment, an award winning Bradford agency in 2011. The high street office won 28 new clients - nearly double its complement at the end of 2013 - and is forecast to be 20 per cent above budget for the year. It peaked at 203 staff.

Julie Bates, business manager at Stafforce (pictured), said: "The company's drive to be more than a recruiter, but a strategic partner that helps clients increase profitability, efficiency and sustainability is increasingly popular with Bradford employers.

"An example of this is how we have helped many SMEs unlock EU, regional and local grants that can see as much as £16,000 awarded for each new appointment. We have also conducted a very high profile marketing campaign, which has seen us visit the offices of existing and potential clients with impactful marketing material and leave-behinds."

Whilst Stafforce provides temporary and permanent recruitment, its sister company, Nicholas Associates, which has offices in Sheffield, offers recruitment, learning and talent development, robotics and automation, software development and Lean business services to its clients.

The town centre branch has recently taken on new staff and the South Bradford Hub has won ten clients since it was launched last August, providing them with 360 staff each day. The majority of its client base is made up of larger employers that require more focused, onsite support.

The Bradford team secured the opportunity to supply Jack Pennington Ltd, a distributor to mechanical and electrical contractors, with staff for one of their biggest projects to date; one which required 1,800 hours of labour.

Established in 1977, Stafforce has grown to a £60m business and is on track to becoming a £100m operation.
