A recruitment company specialising in finding the right candidates for top level positions has opened an office in Manchester as it targets rapid growth over the coming months and years.
Timothy James Consulting opened its new office in Piccadilly with an initial team of just 11 but bosses are planning to dramatically increase the scale of its central Manchester workforce.
Of the staff already installed at its Manchester offices, five are new recruits while the remaining six were relocated from the company’s existing offices in London and Bristol.
“The aim is to triple our Manchester headcount by the end of the year whilst not compromising on quality,” said Timothy James’ chief executive and founder Chris O’Connell.
“Longer term, we are looking to establish a media and publishing division in Manchester and further develop our utilities division, identifying with the recruitment needs of our clients based in the north west,” he went on.
The company’s business is focussed in large part on finding candidates for chief executive and chief financial officer positions within the public and private sectors, with financial services and retail operators among its key clients.
Timothy James’ own chief executive Chris O’Connell has suggested that the opening of a new office in Manchester reflects his company’s commitment to growing its presence within what he calls the “senior appointment space”.
Piccadilly is one of the leading locations for offices to rent in central Manchester, with several of the city’s best and most sought after sites to be found in the vicinity.
