Recruitment company expansion to create 60 jobs

Gleeson Recruitment Group has announced a 6,310 sq ft expansion to its Birmingham city centre headquarters, paving the way for 60 new recruits.

The expansion represents a £1.2m investment following two years of success for the company which saw revenue double, along with a successful move into the European tech market.

“You don’t necessarily need experience in recruitment to join us, we’re just looking for nice people who are driven, tenacious, and team-spirited,” said Gleeson’s talent director Petra O’Hara.

“We have openings across all our divisions, and we work with jobseekers within a huge range of sectors, from accountancy and finance, to marketing and HR. Having recently been named the number one recruitment company to work for in the UK, we have a lot to offer successful applicants. For example, all our team members enjoy a four-and-a half day working week, flexible and hybrid working, on-site gym, meditation and yoga sessions, full training and mentoring, and other incredible rewards and benefits.”

New recruits will be joining a team of over 100 recruiters and support staff based in Newhall Street offices in Birmingham’s business district.

“We’ve expanded our office space by over 30% at a time when many businesses are scaling back, and we’re pleased to be able to offer our team a vibrant space to work and meet clients when they choose to work from the office,” said co-founder Jason Blakey. “We’re growing as a business at a phenomenal rate, and the future’s looking really exciting.”
