Record Year Enables Change for Crewe Company

Crewe-based recruitment firm, The Absolute Solutions Group, has had a record year to date in 2017 which has seen it’s turnover rising by over 20% and forms the basis for significant changes this year.
The Group, which places around 600 temporary workers into work every day, achieved revenues of over £10.4 million during 2017 to December; an increase of nearly £2million on the previous years’ 12 month total.
“We have already seen record numbers of temporary staff out working during January with turnover more than 11% higher than projections,” said CEO Dan Marshall, “and, from the planning meetings we’ve been having with our Clients, this doesn’t show any sign of slowing over the coming months. Combined with ambitious hiring forecasts for the majority of our Clients, current predictions suggest that 2018 is going to be a very busy year for us.”
The Group has also achieved record permanent billings since the start of this year, supporting the findings of yesterday’s RECs Report on Jobs, which highlights the challenges faced by businesses to find candidates for permanent roles and the need for good recruiters to identify passive talent.
The Absolute Solutions Group, which celebrates its 15th anniversary next week, was established in 2003 by Joint CEOs Dan and Jessica Marshall It is a collection of independent recruitment agencies which includes Absolute Recruitment, Meadowbank Associates, Bralin Recruitment and Absolute Health and Care. Each company specialises in its own area of expertise, but also work together to provide a one-stop shop for companies looking to hire temporary and permanent members of staff across Cheshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
The Group has placed literally thousands of local Candidates into work in commercial, industrial, financial, legal, technical and healthcare sector positions since its establishment and its growth is set to continue throughout 2018.
Jessica commented, “We’ve had a fantastic year in 2017, with multiple new contract wins for every Group company with some of the biggest and best employers in the region.
The Recruitment Industry often comes under fire as a result of the unprofessional actions of a minority of operators within the sector, but The Absolute Solutions Group is living proof that Recruiters can be successful and profitable whilst operating ethically and decently.”
Gearing up for predicted growth, the Group has already made several strategic organisational changes over recent months. It has relocated its Commercial and Technical company, Meadowbank Associates, to new offices in Macon Court in Crewe, closer to many of its key clients, and has also taken additional premises at Macon Court to house a new two-storey Training Suite.
The company’s Operations Director, Matt Perkins, said, “Previously, the bulk of the training that we have provided has been concerned with the Healthcare sector. With the new Training building, our in-house Trainer will now be able to expand training programmes to include a training for a whole range of additional sectors.”
