Frontline Recruitment, the Nottingham-based recruitment specialist, is to restructure and expand as it gears up for growth.
Frontline, which has six offices throughout the UK, will be looking to expand its brand by offering franchise opportunities to key recruitment professionals looking to further their career, opening new branches through organic growth and expanding its on-site offering.
Frontline, which currently has six offices in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Mansfield, Bradford and Weymouth will be expanding its national footprint through the franchise offer, says co-owner Tony Wilmot.
“We want to encourage more ownership of the Frontline Recruitment brand through the extension of our branch network,” says Tony. “We will be tapping into the wealth of entrepreneurial talent out there in the recruitment industry and encouraging them to run their own operation and help people back into work – all with the back-up and safety net of the Frontline brand behind them.
“Frontline has grown organically since we set up the company in 2000, and now is the time to take it to the next level. We’re looking to team up with driven people who want to be in at the beginning of an exciting new venture.
Frontline also has big plans for the staff at its existing offices. The company is planning to incentivise key members of staff by offering them share options in the company.
According to Tony, the new plans for the company will take a UK-wide scope. “The majority of our offices might be in the East Midlands, but we’re open to offers from recruitment entrepreneurs from across the UK,” he said. “We’re gearing up for growth and we want the best people along for the ride.”
Frontline’s growth plan comes after it posted a 27 per cent increase in the amount of new candidates it placed in jobs during the first quarter of 2014. The company placed a remarkable 487 new jobseekers in roles during the first three months of the year. It hopes to push turnover past the £15m mark for the first time in 2014.
