Recruitment firm closes Nottingham office

Swanstaff is leaving its Nottingham office

A recruitment firm which has been operating in Nottingham for two years is pulling out of the city and setting up a “recruitment hub” in Milton Keynes.

Swanstaff, which was established in 1997, will also close its Birmingham office and cover the East and West Midlands from its Milton Keynes base.

The firm’s Nottingham office recruited into the healthcare, haulage, warehousing and office and administration sectors and was headed up by Lee Gunton.

When the Nottingham office opened in 2015, Stephen Rogers, managing director of Swanstaff Recruitment, said: “Our new office in Nottingham is integral to our company’s high growth strategy and our goal of 100 high street branches by 2023 within the UK. We are excited to be moving into the area and look forward to introducing our brand and services to the people of the community”.

A spokesperson for Swanstaff told “Swanstaff Recruitment are excited to announce that we have launched our brand new recruitment hub in Milton Keynes which will service the Midlands, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire area. The team is managed by Nicola Adcock who has over 20 years recruitment experience with her most recent experience in the healthcare sector.

“By amalgamating our Nottingham and Birmingham branches into this recruitment hub we will be able to deliver a better value and higher standard of service to both our clients and candidates. This development follows a great year for Swanstaff who have experienced an increase of 12% in gross profit and 4000% growth in net profit.

“The company also launched their brand new employee share scheme this month, with 25% of the business being gifted to employees over the next five years.”

Last month (May) Swanstaff Recruitment was named as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain for the second year running.
