Scotland-based recruitment consultancy, Search, has announced it will 'revolutionise' the North West employment market with the opening of an office in Manchester next month.
The company, which sources personnel across a range of industries such as IT, finance and manufacturing, has targeted Manchester and Crawley as the first of 10 locations in its UK expansion programme.
According to the agency, its Manchester move will create 100 jobs in the next 12 months while the expansion plan will see Search triple its size within the next three years.
Chief executive Grahame Caswell believes the company's "total staffing solutions" recruitment model will prove successful in the North West. "Clients are increasingly demanding measurable evidence of candidates' performance, while the candidates themselves are increasingly demanding far more effective matching with job opportunities," he says.
"We are responding to this trend by designing a recruitment business that places individuals rather than fills jobs."
