Science recruiter snapped up by rival firm

Done deal

A Manchester-based scientific resourcing consultancy has been acquired by a rival business.

SCI Search and Selection sources scientists across all levels of experience.

Its team are also from the same field, providing it with an insight into the challenges facing both clients and candidates.

Entrust Resource Solutions – the parent of Entrust People – has bought the business for an undisclosed amount.

A spokesperson for Entrust Resource Solutions said: “While these three businesses trade successfully independently, we are even stronger as a collective.

“Each has a complementary offering and professional approach, which when combined provides us the opportunity to add depth, scale and greater value to our customers.

“With a continued focus on technology and life sciences, the group can provide services for a full range of roles, from bench to board, working on contingent, interim and executive search assignments.”

The deal means the enlarged business will be able to work across Europe and beyond.

Entrust People added: “Even with the uncertainty of Brexit, our group is thriving.

“We are in the midst of an aggressive five-year growth and acquisition strategy which will see our turnover reach £10m.

“We are forging partnerships with ambitious companies, just like ours, who need the right team to drive their businesses forward.

“In these uncertain times, the right team is more important than ever.”
