Recruitment & HRAppointments

A fast-growing tech recruitment firm has hired two new members of staff as it looks to triple in size in a year.

Last month Fairmont Recruitment moved into 2,100 sq ft of space in 53-55 Mosley Street, Manchester, after signing a five-year deal.

Consultant Will Priamo and trainee James Craig have both joined the tech recruitment specialist, bringing the total number of staff to 11.

CEO Jack Donohue said if the company hit their target of recruiting up to four additional staff before the end of the year, the business will have tripled in size in 2022.

He said: “All our growth has been organic. We haven’t borrowed any money so everything has been funded from new business.

“Our new office in Mosley Street has space for between 24-26 people so we’re future-proofing our growth.

“Switching to a four-day week has really helped us recruit. It’s better for people’s mental health and we want our staff to really want to come into the office.

“We started the year with five staff and could end it with 15.”

Priamo joins from Wilmslow-based Venturi Group and will work in the contract division, predominantly software developers.

He said: “It’s a really exciting time to be joining Fairmont. I love the flexibility they offer and the variety of work opportunities.”

Fairmont was founded in 2018 and is on track to double its turnover to £3.5m in the current financial year.
