The business, located at Metro Riverside Park in Gateshead, specialises in recruitment of engineering, human resources, finance and commercial personnel, across a number of sectors. Established in 2011, the company is owned and managed by directors Nina Robison and Elaine Jordan, who between them have more than 30 years’ experience in the recruitment sector.
They have created a thriving recruitment company that offers an exceptional service to candidates and clients that is both supportive and ethical. This founding ethos has paid off, as over the past four years, Extension Recruitment has built a strong reputation and enjoyed rapid growth as well as achieving 95 per cent repeat business year on year.
Nina and Elaine have consequently expanded the team to five to ensure the high standards of service are maintained. New additions include Louise Ash as office manager and resourcer, Sarah McKenna as HR recruitment specialist and Abbey Hull, who has recently joined as an apprentice administrator.
The team has created a warm and friendly working environment, which is often noted by clients and candidates.
Nina says: “We are thrilled that Louise, Sarah and Abbey have chosen to join Extension Recruitment as the business enters its fifth year of trading.
“Extension Recruitment has recently won a number of exclusive contracts and we are planning to continue expanding our team with the addition of experienced and dedicated consultants and support staff who share our values and the philosophy of commitment to our candidates and clients.
“Elaine and I also have a strong commitment to flexible working and offer a very supportive culture coupled with a superb working environment that includes parking, an on-site café and gym.
“Extension Recruitment operates as an extension of its client’s business. It’s all about open and honest communication, sharing our market knowledge and going the extra mile to deliver against a given brief in order to complement the businesses we support.”
In addition to expanding the team, Extension Recruitment has recently launched a new website www.extensionrecruitment.com in conjunction with Climb Creative. This new digital platform will help Extension Recruitment take its services to new candidates and clients, with Nina and Elaine looking to grow the company further in the coming months and years.
