Following a successful and record year in business, recruitment consultancy Prescient Group has announced its growth and expansion plans for the next three years.
As 2022 saw the business increase its turnover by 107% – with plans to grow this by another 96% this year – seasoned recruiters Joel Fletcher, Charlotte Churm and Ed Robinson have appointed Paul Jacobs as non-executive director to support the delivery of their strategic goals and fast growth plans.
Co-founder and director of Jump Advisory Group, Paul has more than 40 years’ experience working within the recruitment industry – successfully accelerating growth for multiple businesses – having held previous positions as managing director of Office Angels and LoveWorkLife Recruitment.
Within the last month the Prescient team has grown from eight recruitment professionals to 11 – with the additional of Paul and consultants Alex Payne and Craig Catley joining the Manchester office. The firm plans to expand by a further nine employees this year and is currently recruiting for three Nottingham roles – including a temps consultant, resource and delivery consultant and an internal digital marketing manager.
To accommodate the team growth, the Nottingham office has moved to a bigger space within Bridlesmith Walk – which is their third move since 2020 – and the Manchester office is also moving for a third time within Spinningfields.
Having built up a portfolio of 80 UK and international clients, Prescient Group grew its client base by 86% in 2022, in comparison to 2021. As part of its three-year plans, the company will look to expand its services across the software solutions, law, transport, financial, banking and accountancy, property, digital marketing services and energy sectors.
Director Joel Fletcher said: “Last year was a record year in business for us and as we reflect on our plans for 2023 and beyond, it’s amazing to see all that we have achieved in such a short time.
“To help us accelerate our strategy, business goals and ambitious growth plans we have appointed Paul, who has a successful track record in developing strategies to enable businesses to scale up at a fast pace.
“We set out to create and be known as a highly respected and ethical recruitment consultancy and myself, Charlotte and Ed are very proud of not only our success, but the brand and team we have built. We’re looking forward to seeing more of our vision and plans come to life this year.”
