Healthcare recruiter expands to bigger offices as it takes on more staff

Specialist healthcare recruitment agency, Hallam Medical, has relocated to larger premises in Sheffield.

The firm, which employed 50 staff at its former HQ at City Gate on St Mary’s Gate, has taken 8,650 sq ft of space on the second floor of the eight-storey building Westfield House and has already added 10 more employees with a further 10 being recruited next month.

The 15-year deal was brokered by the Sheffield office of Knight Frank on behalf of health and wellbeing provider Westfield Health, with Ben Spencer from Wake Smith Solicitors providing Westfield’s legal advice.

Situated on Charter Row, Westfield House has delivered 80,000 sq ft of city centre offices and is wholly owned by Westfield Health, which occupies 50,000 sq ft of space in the building following a move from previous Division Street headquarters in 2016.

Deborah McCain, CEO at Hallam Medical said: “We provide highly skilled practitioners into settings and services throughout the UK, but we are proud to be based in Sheffield where it all began in 2007.

“Our move to Westfield House comes at a time of continued growth and success, with an active recruitment drive currently underway.

“The property is well suited to our needs and located in the centre of Sheffield.”

Hallam Medical is a framework accredited recruitment agency and provides temporary staff into NHS and private healthcare services throughout the UK offering thousands of full-time, part-time and ad-hoc shifts in various settings and services across the UK.

Peter Whiteley, partner and head of Knight Frank’s Sheffield office, said: “Hallam Medical has taken the second floor over a 15-year lease, and moved in after final fit-out work was completed.

“Westfield House underwent an extensive refurbishment to the interior and exterior of the property by owners Westfield Health and its prime location adjacent to the Heart of The City phase two development makes it a highly desirable place for businesses to operate from.

“In total Westfield Health has brought 30,000 sq ft of fully refurbished office accommodation in this building to market over the last few years, at a time when supply for quality, central office space in the city is relatively limited.”

Ben Spencer, director in the commercial property team at Wake Smith Solicitors, added: “Having acted for Westfield for over 18 years including when they originally purchased Westfield House, I was pleased to act for them on this, their latest letting, and other ongoing property management work.”

Hallam Medical joins tenants Bluestone Credit Management and Begbies Traynor alongside owners Westfield Health in the building, which also features an incubator hub on its ground floor.
