Record year in business for recruitment consultancy

Recruitment consultancy Prescient Group is looking back over a successful year as it records its highest output levels and sets sights on ambitious growth plans for 2023.

Born out of the pandemic in 2020 by seasoned recruiters Joel Fletcher, Charlotte Churm and Ed Robinson, the specialist firm has offices in Nottingham, Manchester and London and delivers its services across a number of sectors including supply chain, marketing, finance and HR.

Only in its second year of business, 2022 saw the team increase its turnover as it grew by more than 107% compared to 2021 – with an aim to grow by another 58% next year.

Since its inception, Prescient Group has built up its portfolio to more than 80 clients, as well as growing its services within its existing client base, and has expanded into the international market.

To support its client base, the team has grown to eight recruitment professionals – having appointed temps account manager Georgie Leech and permanent consultant Daisy Owen – and awarded three promotions within the last six months. Recruitment plans continue across its three offices, with a goal of reaching a headcount of 16 by next year.

Following the Nottingham’s office relocation this summer, which saw the team move to a bigger space in the city centre to accommodate its growth, the Manchester recruiters have also outgrown their space and recently moved into a bigger office within Spinningfields.

To celebrate and mark hitting its turnover goal, the managing directors took the team to Krakow this month and has provided other incentives such as team lunches, meals at a restaurant of their choice and after-work activities. Prescient Group has plans to go further afield next year, once they’ve hit their new targets.

Director Joel Fletcher said: “We’re proud to have achieved all the goals we set for 2022, and to be ending the year on record results for the business is a real high for us.

“Prescient Group was set up during the pandemic to simply provide an honest, ethical and first-class service, and this year is a testament to us delivering just that and the team’s hard work in doing so.

“This year we have expanded our services and more of our clients are utilising our offering. We have invested in specialist software to help us recruit more efficiently, capture more of the market and find job opportunities for our candidate base too. As well as this, we’ve been committed to growing and developing the team with bespoke training plans for our new starters and recruitment training.

“Charlotte, Ed and I would like to say thank you to all our employees, for their dedication and commitment this year, and our clients for their continued support. We look forward to further growth in 2023.”
