Further expansion for local recruitment company

Local recruitment expert M65Jobsearch has again expanded their business, this time by collaborating with another local recruitment company, Ellison People and taking on a new senior commercial consultant Katie Shaw.

Ellison People, based in Burnley, has been established for just over five years and dealt mainly with commercial recruitment.

Mark Wiggan managing director at M65Jobsearch said: “The opportunity came up for us to collaborate with Ellison People on their key clients in the UK as Vicky Atkinson their MD is moving to Australia.

"We felt it was too good an opportunity to miss and would be beneficial for all concerned. Ellison People are well established with a wide client base and have earned a good reputation in the commercial sector locally. We want to maintain and build on that reputation and felt it was a perfect match with our expansion plans.”

Vicky Atkinson who set up Ellison People in 2014 said: “I’m really glad that M65Jobsearch and myself have been able to collaborate to ensure a smooth transition of our key clients. Their knowledge, experience and determination to help both clients and candidates sits perfectly with what I’ve done over the years so I’m extremely happy knowing that this is going to continue.”

Katie Shaw who is also joining the company said: “I’m extremely pleased to be joining M65Jobsearch at a very exciting time for them. Their further expansion into the commercial sector offers a real opportunity and I’m looking forward to getting started and playing my part in it.”

Mark added: “The demand in our area across all sectors, manufacturing, engineering and commercial, means it’s important for us to stay ahead of the game and ensure we have the right staff to service that demand. 

“The appointment of Katie, who has a wealth of experience gained over many years of working in recruitment, along with the other appointments we’ve made recently, means we’ll be able to service the demand we’re currently seeing.

"It’s an important time for M65Jobsearch and we’re sure the new appointments and the collaboration with Ellison People will prove to be timely for us. We have a strong brand with two key locations and we aim to be the "go to" agency for candidates and employers."
