Recruitment firm on course to smash 2021 growth target

Sky Recruitment Solutions has said it is on course to smash its 2021 growth target three months early due to a boom in job vacancies.

The Derby-based recruitment group, which includes Nottingham-based sister company Capella Professional, had two offices and just 10 staff this time last year – but has rapidly expanded to eight locations and 25 staff.

It is now seeking five additional staff members by September, meaning its original target of employing 30 staff by the end of this year will be achieved with months to spare.

Sky Recruitment Solutions puts part of its success down to the fact it has managed to fulfil major recruitment drives for new and existing clients where competitor firms have failed to meet the demand.

David Torrington, managing director of Sky Recruitment Solutions, said: “We will have completed our growth plans for 2021 by the end of September, which is fantastic.

“We’ve been riding on the crest of a wave and we’re already looking towards 2022.

“We’re seeing lots of new clients where they’re finding other recruitment agencies can’t supply the staff they need.

“Recruitment agencies are generally struggling to supply staff but Sky Recruitment Solutions has been innovative and always found ways of satisfying our clients’ needs.”

Beckie Elliott, business manager for the firm, said job vacancies were “across the board”, in manufacturing, packaging, assembly and distribution particularly.

She said: “Companies are contacting us left, right and centre every day where they’ve not been able to find suitable job candidates due to the national shortage.

“It’s really busy, but really good news for Sky, as we’ve managed to deliver.”
