After a challenging 18 months for businesses up and down the country, the awards will also support and cheer on all the exceptional professionals who have excelled within the recruitment industry during this difficult period.

Mike Shorrock, from Lytham, founder and managing director of Spencer Clarke Group said: “In the four short years which we have been operating, we have grown exponentially so being shortlisted for this award is a huge milestone in the journey of Spencer Clarke Group.”

The awards coincide with a series of initiatives designed to provide the additional capacity required for Spencer Clarke Group’s anticipated business growth over the longer term.

The expansion plans include a new modern office at Bartle Court Business Centre in Swillbrook, near Preston, a revamped website and a recruitment drive to attract new talent.

The new office space, 50 per cent bigger than the existing office footprint, aims to be recognised as one of the leading workspaces within the area, rivalling those seen in the bigger cities.

The pet friendly office boasts a generous collaborative workspace, a state of the art boardroom and a trendy break out room kitted out with the latest facilities.

With the arrival of the Preston Western Distributor Road, scheduled to open early in 2023, the office will be even more accessible to its 20 strong team and future recruits.

Mr Shorrock, continued, “The decision to expand the office space and embark on a recruitment drive was a logical step in our business and growth strategy. We’re excited for what the future holds and to provide an even better working environment for our expanding teams.”

The office move is to help the recruitment firm's expansion

The ceremony to celebrate this year’s Recruiter Awards winners will take place on September 23 at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London.
