Pete Taylor

Specialist recruitment agency Encore Personnel is approaching the £100m turnover mark – with the firm reaching the milestone as it enters its 20th year in business.

Encore, which employs over 200 people across the Midlands, has reported a turnover of £95m for the year to 31 December 2021, up from £76.6m in 2020.

The firm has five branches across the East Midlands in Leicester, Derby, Northampton, Nottingham and Spalding.

Managing director Pete Taylor said: “We’re delighted to report that our business is thriving in what is undoubtedly the toughest labour market we have experienced.

“2022 marks Encore’s 20th anniversary, a cause for much celebration in itself. Couple this with the fact that we’re in the most agile, dynamic and driven form we’ve ever been – against a very unsettled economic backdrop – we can honestly say we’re ready for and equal to the ever-changeable requirements our customers might have.

“I’d like to shine the spotlight on our culture and our people who make Encore what it is today. Our teams are our business – without them we wouldn’t continue to stand out as the Midlands’ gold standard recruitment agency for quality expertise and exceptional client service.”
