News: Elevation Recruitment grows own team of experts


Rotherham-based specialist, Elevation Recruitment, has built on its recent expansion into Leeds with a number of new appointments after seeing a surge in vacancies in businesses across Yorkshire.

Part of the Horbury Group, Elevation was founded in 2010 and doubled its Moorgate office space last year to cater for its rapidly expanding team. A new state of the art office at No1 Leeds in Leeds city centre opened earlier this year.

Five new appointments have been made in Rotherham including Tom Jagger as senior consultant with three years specialist recruitment experience within the FMCG sector, Sarah Mounsey as senior consultant in the Sales & Marketing division with nine years experience in recruitment, Beth Rowland as recruitment secretary and both Amy D'Silva and Stefanie Walker as consultant both with extensive recruitment experience working across the South Yorkshire region.

In Leeds, Rob Simpson joins as senior consultant in Finance with 12 years Accountancy & Finance Recruitment experience, Scott Morton as consultant in the Sales & Marketing division with four years specialist recruitment experience, Catherine Pitman as recruitment secretary and David Russell as consultant with four years Human Resource Management experience.

Joint managing director Greg Parkinson believes that Elevation's latest expansion is further evidence of the regions above average employment growth and strong contribution to the UK's highest reported vacancy count in five years.

The most recent statistics from the Office of National Statistics revealed that there were 529,000 vacancies in the UK between April and June this year – the highest quarterly figure reported since September to November 2008.

Greg, said: "It is clear from the latest statistics that Yorkshire is performing extremely well when it comes to the employment landscape and we have seen first-hand that there has been a significant increase in roles across all of the sectors we work in.

"This increase in demand has seen us recently expand our HR, sales and marketing and senior finance divisions and we have also seen a significant increase in roles in the engineering and office support sectors.

"The recent growth is not restricted to a particular sector and is great news for Yorkshire. It suggests that businesses across the board are starting to feel more confident about their futures, and employees are increasingly confident about looking for that next step up the career ladder.

"As a firm the number of jobs we are being asked to recruit for continues to demonstrate an upward trend and we expect the region to continue outperforming the national averages when it comes to employment growth."

Elevation enjoyed a turnover of over £1.8m in 2012.
