Newcastle’s Central Employment to bolster team after ‘exceptional ‘year

An independent recruitment firm is looking to strengthen its team after enjoying an “exceptional year”.

Newcastle-based Central Employment wants workers to maintain its momentum after booking sales and profit increases.

According to latest annual financial results, covering the period to September 30, 2021, sales increased by nearly 30 per cent, with net profit up from £1.1 million to £1.4 million.

Turnover lifted from £20.1 million to £25.6 million.

The firm placed more than 5000 temporary and permanent workers during its reporting period, with progress fuelled by traditional manufacturing, industrial and pharmaceutical demand.

And Will Palmer, finance director, confirmed it is now seeking new faces to continue its growth.

He said: “These financial results reflect an exceptional year, demonstrating the strong foundations and structure of our business post-pandemic, with a very pleasing performance across all our business interests.

“Since our management buyout in 2015, we have grown incrementally year-on-year, and we are now looking to expand on our services and build on our successes.

“We are looking to recruit permanent members of staff to join the growing team in Newcastle, whether that be at graduate level, sales, admin or recruitment level.”

He also revealed the company has made a one-off, £500 payment to all full and part-time staff to help with the cost of living crisis.

Will added: “As a thank you for all their hard work, we are making the payment, which we hope will go some way to help during these uncertain economic times.”
