Growth for GMP Recruitment as it finalises acquisition deal
An expanding Worcestershire recruitment firm has continued its growth plans through the acquisition of a Worcester jobs agency.
GMP Recruitment, which is headquartered in the city’s Copenhagen Street, has finalised the takeover of The Recruitment Company Midlands, also known as TRCM.
Founded by Tony Maguire in 2013, The Recruitment Company Midlands built a strong reputation over the past ten years for recruiting individuals into the engineering, manufacturing and administration sectors.
As part of the deal, the staff will move across to GMP Recruitment with TRCM’s current directors, including Maguire, stepping away from the newly merged business. TRCM’s Sansome Street offices will also close and be merged into GMP’s Worcester base.
Gareth Matts, director and co-founder at GMP Recruitment, said: “TRCM is a business we know well and have always admired for its formidable track record and impressive local and regional client base.
“To complete the acquisition is an important step in our growth plans and we think it will be a fantastic fit which will significantly expand our presence in Worcestershire and the wider region.
“We have some big plans going forward and bringing TRCM into our group will also add up to four new jobs over the next 12 months to help stay ahead of demand.
“More than anything, it’s an exciting deal for us as we enter a new financial year in the best possible shape.”
Maguire added: “As a business, we weren’t actively looking for a buyer, but Gareth and the team at GMP presented a really strong plan and vision for the future.
“We’ve had a successful decade in business and built a really trusted reputation. That’s something we’re exceptionally proud of, but it was the right decision to become part of GMP Recruitment and we’re confident our clients are in the best hands.”
GMP Recruitment, founded in 2019 by Matts and fellow director Mike Pincott, now places more than 1,000 people a year into permanent or temporary office, engineering, manufacturing and logistics jobs. The company works with organisations across the industrial, legal, finance, logistics, office and hospitality sectors.
