Adapting to ‘new normal’ results in growth for recruitment firm

A recruitment firm has grown its client base by 60% and added 15 members of staff, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

Sale-based Golden Egg Recruitment Group has seen the expansion occur since the start of the UK lockdown in late March.

Its notable growth has been achieved through pivoting its existing business model to include flexible payment terms, offering funded payroll solutions, and providing bespoke commercial solutions to every client where needed.

Chief executive James Kershaw said: “We had to act swiftly to adapt the way we do business as we knew that the recruitment sector would be hit hard.

“We had no choice but to create and embrace the necessary business changes when lockdown began.”

He added: “Without using the Government furlough scheme, our quick response and ability to adapt our enterprise was in stark comparison to many of our competitors, who scaled down their operations.

“We have been able to continue to grow by offering flexible recruitment terms to every single new client – which, ultimately, has led to the Golden Egg Recruitment Group securing new business and placing hundreds of candidates into roles across the UK, keeping people in work and the economy moving.”
