The news comes as Frontline enjoys it best-ever year, with turnover rising 25% – breaking through the £15m barrier – and staff numbers rising by 23%.

David Essam, General Manager at Frontline, said: “It gives me huge pleasure to announces the promotions of Lauren and Karen. Both are fundamental to our business and have been instrumental in our stellar performance over the last 12 months.

“They keep on delivering excellent results for Frontline, have fantastic attitudes, desire and commitment to keep the business ahead of the pack – and they’ve only had two days off between them in 16 years – they’re an inspiration to the rest of our team and I wish them continued success in their new roles.

“This has been a fantastic year for everyone at Frontline and I’d like to express my thanks to all our staff for helping us to a record year. We’re fast becoming the go-to experts for recruitment solutions.”
