Recruitment firm makes move to Hereford office complex

A recruitment specialist has moved its business to the heart of Hereford’s business district to be close to key clients.

Meridian Business Support has leased workspace at Stirling House in Skylon Park, Hereford’s Enterprise Zone, and aims to use its new office as a base for growth.

Stirling House is a speculative office complex developed by Priority Space in partnership with the Hunt Group and Herefordshire Council.

Meridian Business Support is one of the largest privately-owned recruitment companies in the UK with a network of branches in 32 major towns and cities.

Its Hereford branch specialises in matching candidates to vacancies in manufacturing, industrial and administration roles.

Meridian’s branch manager in Hereford Lucy Duffy said: “We sought a fresh start in 2023 after all the disruption to our industry, as a result of the Covid pandemic, furlough schemes and Brexit, and what better way to achieve this than with a new modern office.

“Being a recruitment branch predominantly focused on industrial, manufacturing, office and administration roles, it feels right to be in Stirling House at the heart of Hereford’s business district where the majority of our clients are located.”

The company has grown its business over ten years, and aims to expand its client base across Herefordshire and create jobs in its new office over the next year.

Director of commercial property developers Priority Space, Adam Richardson said: “Meridian’s decision to relocate to Stirling House is testament to the growing business community we have here. All of Skylon Park’s employers need excellent professional support services in areas such as recruitment. We welcome Meridian to their new office and look forward to seeing their continued growth in Hereford.”

Mark Pearce, managing director of Skylon Park, Hereford’s Enterprise Zone, said: “This is another fantastic addition to the business community at Stirling House. We have a number of thriving businesses at Skylon Park, including those looking to scale up and grow their teams, so it’s the perfect location for a recruitment company.”
