A recruitment firm has set itself challenging expansion targets as it plans to fulfil its own growth plans.

Manchester-based, The City Recruiter, wants to place 600 graduates into work over the next six months.

The company, which currently employs 13 staff, also aims to bolster its own team by an extra 40 staff by the end of 2023, and will be moving into a larger office at Manchester’s Cardinal House, transitioning from its former HQ on Dale Street, allowing the firm to accommodate for the expansion.

The City Recruiter has already placed more than 1,000 individuals into jobs across various sectors, including sales, legal, operations, care and construction in just over 12 months.

Looking beyond local horizons, the firm also has set its sights on international growth in the coming year.

Director, Nick Ryan, said: “We are thrilled to be embarking on this exciting journey of expansion.

“While we look to place people in careers from all walks of life, our recent Kick-Start initiative is to make a meaningful impact in the lives of graduates, too, who often struggle with their first step on the career ladder.

“Our aim is to provide them with the opportunities to excel in some of the country’s best businesses and let them thrive in their respective fields.”

He added: “We are also committed to nurturing our own talent and fostering a supportive environment for our team members, as they are the driving force behind our success.”

In the past year alone, the firm has successfully partnered with more than 100 clients, which has been a key driver its rapid growth.

As the company strives to place 600 graduates in a wide range of roles around the UK, including solicitors, paralegals, building surveyors, marketeers, recruiters, sales staff, and a broad range of IT positions, the firm aims to bridge the gap between academic achievement and professional experience.

Mr Ryan said: “It is incredibly rewarding to witness the positive impact we have on people’s lives by helping them secure employment opportunities that support their families and provide them with the necessary experience to excel in their careers.

“Our latest goal to provide graduates with valuable entry-level positions shows our commitment to empower young professionals to embark on successful career journeys.

“We are excited about the potential to make an even greater impact with our current growth trajectory and we’re very excited about the coming months at The City Recruiter.”
