Two Prominent Scottish Recruitment Firms Are Gearing for Growth.

Glasgow-based Change Recruitment has announced a 'top-tier overhaul' with three new senior hires and Dumfermline-based recruitment firm Maxwell Bruce is expanding into Edinburgh with a move to a new 2,500 sq. ft office in the the west end.

Change has brought in three senior hires from rival Hudson and plans to increase headcount by “20 to 25 per cent” this year on its 65 at present and is opening a new office in Edinburgh.

Matt Warder joins Change as head of energy and professional services, Mark Wilson joins as head of global accountancy and finance and Steve Beck joins as operations manager. Scott Taylor has also been promoted to divisional manager in the accountancy and finance division.

The new senior team follows a: “comprehensive restructure of the business” under Mark McFall, who took over as group managing director last year, says Change.

McFall said: “We will look to grow headcount by a further 20-25 per cent this year and there is also our new office in Edinburgh which we move into over the next few months, new specialisms and new markets in the pipeline.

Engineering, construction and industrial recruitment specialist Maxwell Bruce, celebrating 25 years in business this year, is opening its fourth Scottish office in Edinburgh, adding to existing offices in Glasgow, Dundee and Dunfermline.

The Edinburgh office, expected to open in July, will be staffed by a new eight-strong team and is currently recruiting, with plans to also add eight further staff in Glasgow.

Maxwell Bruce said its target for 2015 is to fill at least 1,400 construction and engineering positions and is aiming to double in size in the next three to five years.

Roddy Donaldson, managing director of Maxwell Bruce, said: “As we enter our twenty-fifth year in the recruitment business, we’re seeing growth across the construction and engineering sectors, meaning increased demand for skilled staff across the country.

“The expansion and recruitment also support our long-term growth plans.

“We’re looking to increase our presence within the industry by doubling in size over the next three to five years.

“Growing our team and moving into the brand new Edinburgh office will really kick-start those plans.

“In 2014 we placed almost 1,800 candidates – an 11-year high – and saw consistent revenue growth across all three of our existing offices.

“We want that to continue, so we’re looking for a number of talented, driven recruitment professionals, with experience of the industrial engineering and construction markets, to deliver the high quality service that our clients have come to expect.

“And the move to Edinburgh reflects our commitment to achieving a presence in locations where our clients most need us.”
