Have your say

A RECRUITMENT firm has seen a 250 per cent increase in annual turnover to £1.2m following a year which saw new business wins and the appointment of a new joint managing director.

Rotherham-based Elevation Recruitment’s turnover for the year to the end of December, 2011, was more than £1.2m. The previous year, its turnover was £340,000. The company employs 14 members of staff, having started out as a team of three in 2010. Elevation Recruitment offers recruitment services in accountancy and finance, sales and marketing, office support and search and selection sectors.

New business wins for 2011 included PwC and Greencore.

Greg Parkinson, joint managing director, said: “As a company in just its second year of trading it is an amazing feat that we are posting a seven-figure turnover. We are a very ambitious company and are now 100 per cent focused on making 2012 an even bigger and better year for both ourselves and our clients.

“We closed 2011 with the appointment of Lee Bhandal as our joint managing director, and I am looking forward to working with Lee to drive Elevation Recruitment to even more success.”
