Sheffield’s national staffing and specialist business consultancy Nicholas Associates has appointed Peter Bone as head of recruitment.
Peter will lead on company strategy and direction and work alongside non-recruitment services.
The company saw significant brand establishment in 2014 and growth in its construction, engineering and manufacturing operations as demand for production talent boomed.
Bone joined the national player in January when it acquired his specialist agency, Trinity Recruitment Group, a move which brought the company new financial, creative and HR divisions, which are identified as further areas for growth in 2015.
Nicholas Associates has increased its resourcers and consultants by 50% to meet demand and the plan for 2015 is to at least double in size and launch a breakthrough emotional intelligence tool for senior appointments.
Director Paul Brammer said: “This strategic appointment will help position us in a number of vertical markets, which will open up opportunities for our non-recruitment products such as software development and business consultancy. Peter has a thorough understanding of our operations as we work with an increasingly scarce labour resource acutely aware of its own marketability.”
