Recruitment and training specialists Red Recruitment 24:7, who are on course for a turnover of more than £6 million, are expanding and aiming to create more jobs.

Lincoln-based chartered surveyor Banks Long & Co has leased premises in Pioneer Way, in the south of the city, to the firm which is planning to buy its newest offices in the near future.

Red Recruitment 24:7 employs 20 people – across its sites in Scunthorpe (where the business started) – at Newland in Lincoln and in Gainsborough. The growth experienced by the multi-faceted business triggered its latest move.

Chief Executive Mark Morley said: “We are very keen to buy our new premises because we anticipate creating about 14 more jobs over the next 18 months. By this time next year, we also estimate we will have spent £675,000 on our expansion, when you take into account the inevitable infrastructure costs involved.

“We are really proud of the fact that, since we opened our doors 12 years ago we have helped 137,000 people, including upskilling and training them to be work ready and supporting them in finding their dream job, that in turn supports our clients to find their next superstar.

“It is great to be working with well-known Lincolnshire trainer Paula Finch, through our jointly-owned business, The Professional Training Company in this respect.”
