Derby-based Encore Personnel has reported a record six months for its engineering division and is looking to take on more staff.

The firm opened the new engineering division in August of last year and has seen it win 16 new clients and smash its forecasted profit by 13.1% in six months.

Now, the division has appointed a new resource management specialist to meet demand and is looking to hire a further team member by August.

Divisional manager, Jim Shelley, said: “Encore has developed a strong reputation for providing viable recruitment support for the engineering sector on a national level across its ten offices. Derby is at the centre of the rail and engineering sector and opening a new division in the region was the next step in ensuring Encore continues providing a high level of service, supporting other areas of the business at the Derby branch, to ensure a one stop recruitment solution for new and existing clients in the region.

“The success of the division in just six months is a testament to the hard work of the Encore team but we are keen to expand even further. We have mapped out a concrete growth strategy over the next 12 months and are already hiring new recruits to support increasing demand from clients. It is a very exciting period of development for us.”
