Recruitment Boost For Frontline

Midlands-based Frontline Recruitment is celebrating after bucking the national trend in 2009 and taking on 150 new clients since the beginning of the year.

Despite the economic doom and gloom, the firm has continued to grow and has added 150 new clients to its books since January, which alone have generated a turnover of £1.23million.

Frontline provides both temporary and permanent recruitment solutions to a variety of industries, including the public sector, manufacturing and production, warehouse and distribution, domestic services and packaging.

The firm has offices across the region in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Mansfield and Bradford. It also has staff based on site at client offices and was established in September 2000 by its current owners Tony Wilmot and Elliot Kidd.

Tony said: "We are really pleased that in spite of the economic downturn we have still managed to take on board 150 new clients – which is a great achievement.

"The credit crunch has been difficult for everyone, but recruitment firms have really felt the brunt. Our business relies on our clients' need for staff, and the fact of the matter is that people have been reducing staff costs to keep their heads above water.

"Although we have found the downturn difficult, we have simply looked at what it is our clients need to get through this difficult patch.

"We have seen an increase in the amount of firms that are looking for temporary staff as opposed to permanent – so we have ensured that we can provide just that, after all, it is about giving the customer what they want," he said, noting that Frontline Recruitment Limited was established in September 2000 by Tony Wilmot and Elliot Kidd and is a privately owned business specifically designed to provide Recruitment Solutions right to the front line of where businesses need people. Frontline Recruitment is made up of three divisions each specialising in its own recruitment markets.
