News: Stafforce launches four new offices


Fast growing national specialist recruiter, Stafforce, is expanding its national branch network by four new offices, including two in South Yorkshire.

With a head office on Percy Street in Rotherham town centre and a UK-wide network of 28 sites, Stafforce offers a range of services to clients through its Stafforce Recruitment and Nicholas Associates brands.

The company supplies temporary and permanent staff, from first time job seekers to semi-skilled workers, to manufacturing and production companies and the commercial and industrial sectors. Executive recruiter Nicholas Associates sources senior management and director-level candidates.

New operations in Sheffield, Doncaster, Wolverhampton and Docklands in London, extends Stafforce Recruitment's presence into the West Midlands for the first time, doubles its operations in the capital and significantly strengthens the company's position in the Yorkshire region.

Established in 1977 by local entrepreneur, now chairman, Nick Cragg, Stafforce enjoyed a turnover of £60m in 2013. Having seen demand for workers growing across all regions of the UK, the company believes it is the right time to put the company's expansion plans into action.

Nick Cragg, founder and owner of Stafforce (pictured), said: "Growing the Stafforce Recruitment brand on a national basis has been on the agenda for some time but with economic uncertainly blighting the UK and Europe over recent years, we needed to pick the right time to do it.

"We have seen demand for staff increase across the majority of sectors we service and that seems as if it is set to continue, so we believe that now is the time.

"We have some really fantastic people heading up our new offices with many years of recruitment experience between them. I'm extremely excited by the expansion, which is the first of a number we have planned over medium term."

Stafforce Recruitment previously had offices in Doncaster and Sheffield but consolidated its South Yorkshire operations during the recession as the region was hit by heavy job losses.

Nick, who also owns Nicholas Associates and is chairman of rugby club Rotherham Titans, added that re-establishing offices in Doncaster and Sheffield was the best way to serve the region's businesses as it enabled Stafforce Recruitment to become part of the commercial landscape of areas they were based.

He said: "There are a lot of exciting investment projects in South Yorkshire at the moment and our ambition is to be involved in those and to play our part in ensuring the economic potential of the region is realised.

"To do that without a strong local presence would be difficult, we need to be part of South Yorkshire's respective business communities so that is why it is important for us to launch these new offices now.

"But the same goes for London and Wolverhampton. We want to capitalise on the upturn in these areas also so need to be truly integrated into the community to enable that to happen."
