Demand for candidates in finance, business operations, and procurement has led to the Midlands-based Macildowie increasing its workforce.
Macildowie has appointed seven new staff members across its Nottingham, Leicester and Milton Keynes offices – comprising a divisional manager, three recruitment consultants, two trainees and in-house support staff.
Joining the Nottingham branch are recruitment consultants, Lauren Evans, who works in the business operations division, and Ashley Bane, a specialist in procurement and supply chain. Alicja Bujnowska-Samoluk has become the firm’s payroll administrator and the finance division has welcomed Thomas Hodgett as recruitment consultant.
In Milton Keynes, Will Jones has joined as a recruitment consultant, while in Leicester the procurement and supply division has been bolstered with the appointment of divisional manager Lynn Campbell and trainee consultant Reo Beaumont.
Commenting on Macildowie’s growth, Managing Director James Taylor said: “Our recent appointments, which include five brand new roles, bring our workforce to 74 and are a sure sign that the Midlands economy is performing well. Our clients are demanding even more talented candidates to help them drive their business forward and our team is growing to meet the challenge.
“We are now well into our ambitious three-year ‘Building Great Futures’ strategy, which has internal staff investment and development at its core. The goal is to create a market leading customer value proposition and a business where our staff can progress their career – and the fact that we’re adding to our teams shows we’re achieving this.”
Macildowie, which works with high-profile clients such as Paul Smith, Boots and E.ON, once again appeared on 2017’s Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For list. It was also awarded the prestigious three-star ‘extraordinary’ accreditation, which is based on factors like staff satisfaction and engagement.
In January 2017, the recruitment firm saw a record-breaking month for enquiries, which jumped by 73% compared to last year. Since then, it has continued with a similar footing and expects further growth in the coming months, with more new roles presenting themselves.
