Ambitious Expansion Plans For The Business Connection In Liverpool October 13, 2008

The current economic climate hasn’t dampened The Business Connection’s (TBC) spirits.

Chester’s premier recruitment agency has opened its first Liverpool branch and has just announced plans to launch up to ten new commercial recruitment branches throughout Merseyside and the North West.

The first Merseyside TBC branch opened in the heart of Liverpool (Bixteth Street) on 9th October, with further offices planned throughout 2009 including Crewe, Warrington, Manchester, Stockport and Preston.

Founded 20 years ago by Kirsty Craig, TBC is Chester’s longest established recruitment agency. It has become the leading local temporary and permanent commercial recruitment agency, specialising in the Office Staffing, Contact Centre and Management sectors. The Business Connection serves the majority of Cheshire’s commercial clients and blue-chip financial services companies, including MBNA and M&S Money.

Liverpool was pinpointed by the company as a crucial growth opportunity even in today’s market. TBC’s MD, Kirsty Craig said: “Reacting to the significant growth we have seen in Liverpool’s commercial sector was paramount to us. We have spoken and worked with many Liverpool-based employers and even in these highly competitive times we have found that people trust us to perform for them and would rather invest in that service than make short-term savings.”

Kirsty adds: “In the recruitment sector narrowing profit margins have driven down the quality of service offered by many agencies. Our reputation is second to none and the success of the TBC business model is based on delighting clients and customers with an unmatched service.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our experienced senior management team to develop a superior regional recruitment service for Liverpool and we’re dedicated to emulating our accomplished business model and local success across Merseyside.”

Liverpool’s TBC team of five senior consultants, headed by newly promoted Operations Director, Rachel Hough, has already secured several key employers in Merseyside. Rachel will be overseeing TBC’s expansion programme.

Rachel adds: “We’re reacting to recent market developments by providing tailor-made solutions and consultations specialising in temp recruitment. Over the next 12 months, we will be building on our successful local reputation of providing the best standard of commercial temporary recruitment to spearhead an ambitious regional expansion programme throughout the North West starting in Merseyside.”

“Expanding will increase our pool of candidates across the region massively, which will be a great benefit to our clients, and will help provide Liverpool job-seekers with a greater choice of job vacancies.”
