Sky Recruitment Solutions has revealed plans to open three more UK offices following ‘phenomenal’ growth in 2020.

The firm, based in The Strand, in Derby, with additional offices in Ripley and Huddersfield, is planning to open the new sites by the autumn.

The locations for the new offices are not yet being revealed as commercial negotiations are still ongoing.

The move follows Sky’s biggest ever year since it was founded in 2014, with 2020 seeing a 50% increase in turnover and similar growth in both staff and client numbers, based on its previous year’s figures.

Over the next 12 months, the firm is planning to double its 14-strong workforce.

Managing director David Torrington said: “The last 12 months have genuinely been phenomenal, with 2020 being by far the most successful year we’ve ever had.

“We have more staff and clients than we have ever had and businesses still want to hire, despite the challenges of the pandemic.

“We want to repeat our success in 2021 with another record year.”

David said part of Sky’s success was down to the fact that it represents a broad number of industry sectors, from packaging and logistics to manufacturing and waste recycling.

He said: “Some sectors have struggled during the pandemic, though others have thrived.

“We’ve succeeded because we don’t have all our eggs in one basket.”

The company’s latest growth news comes hot on the heels of other expansion plans announced before Christmas.

Sky, which specialises in providing personnel for industrial roles, announced the launch of sister brand Capella Professional in Nottingham, which will specialise in office-based recruitment.
