Recruitment group targeting continued expansion after a decade in business

10th anniversary party for Elevate Recruitment

A Yorkshire-based recruitment business highlighted its commitment to growth by hiring six new members of staff last month.

Elevation Recruitment, which has offices in Wakefield and Rotherham, has recently marked 10 years in business.

It has placed over 12,000 candidates in roles since launching in 2010, while increasing its own headcount from an original four employees to over 75 employees across its two regional offices today. Turnover for the business has quadrupled in the last five years.

Greg Parkinson, founder and CEO of Elevation Recruitment Group, said: “I feel extremely proud to reflect on the impact we have had as a business over the last 10 years.

“Elevation was born during challenging economic times, but we have worked very hard and shown a huge amount of passion and dedication to our responsibilities as a service-based organisation.

“We pride ourselves on working with service driven, ambitious consultants who have either joined the business as a specialist or been nurtured and trained to become one and their dedication to our core values has resulted in huge individual and collective success.

“Being able to demonstrate that over 90% of our turnover is with repeat business, received  thousands of testimonials from people we have assisted in finding that next dream job and raising over £10,000 for local charities makes me very proud of the work my team have produced.

“We now look forward to the next 10 years and the growth we have in store is very exciting.”

The group’s achievements in Accountancy and Finance recruitment in its early days led to it transitioning into new local markets.

Elevation now also has an engineering and manufacturing recruitment division, as well as offering specialist recruitment in human resources, business support, procurement and supply chain, marketing and sales. The company’s executive search business – Parkinson Lee Executive Search – joined the group in 2014.
