Newcastle recruitment specialists expand

A Newcastle-based specialist recruitment business is marking its first major phase of growth by taking on new city centre premises, as it continues its expansion within the North East and beyond.

Drayton Partners recruitment consultancy has relocated to a newly refurbished contemporary office within Newcastle’s burgeoning City Quadrant, to cater for the firm’s increasing number of employees, alongside its growing national and international client base.

Established in 2010, the company provides bespoke senior management recruitment solutions to the food and drink, consumer goods and retail sectors and counts high profile brands such as Marks and Spencer, Warburton’s, Boots and Florette amongst its client portfolio.

Founding partner of Drayton Partners Rob Seery said: “We have enjoyed an excellent two years of trading and our performance has exceeded all our forecasts. We operate across all of the key disciplines; including finance, manufacturing, sales and marketing. This breadth of experience will also allow us to further grow our North East proposition, which has always been a strategic goal.

“By autumn 2012 we plan to have six employees and over the next three years we aim to double our workforce.”

Co-partner and former Nestlé senior manager Ian Pickett said: “The key to our growth and success has been our commitment to providing a smarter solution to our clients. Recruiting people for our own team who have worked within our specialist sectors ensures we speak the same language and understand the needs within the current economic climate.

“Our new office will not only improve our transport connections, making it easier to reach our client base, but will also provide a fantastic working environment. To be able to offer our team the advantage of a city centre location, coupled with flexible home working, enables us to stand out from the competition.”

Lesley McIver, onsite manager at City Quadrant said: “Newcastle is a booming city of enterprise, offering exciting opportunities to live and work - we are excited to be able to provide these contemporary offices to a thriving company such as Drayton Partners and are confident that we will be able to support their ambitious plans.”
