Derbyshire-headquartered The Recruitment Group has completed its eighth acquisition – of MYNT Recruitment, expanding its footprint into Yorkshire.
Established in 2004, MYNT has offices in York, Hull and Rotherham and specialise in recruiting for the Commercial, Industrial, Professional and Technical sectors.
The Recruitment Group’s group Managing Director, Paul Hipkiss, said: “This is a great milestone for us, as it signifies the next stage of our growth and another great business joining our family. Mynt and The Recruitment Group have a lot in common. Both companies share the same values and are dedicated to providing industry-leading service. Our combined expertise will bring loads of new job opportunities to Yorkshire.”
Martin Shaw, Managing Director of MYNT, added: “When we were looking for a buyer for our business, we needed to find a company that shared our values, focus on customer service and who had the vision matched with the expertise to take MYNT Recruitment to the next stage of our development. I can’t wait to see how our business and employees develop in the future. It’s certainly exciting times and my team and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes us.”
MYNT founder, John Stanton, is now leaving the business to retire. He said: “As I enter retirement, I am really pleased that Martin and I found a buyer who shares those exact same values and the ethos on which I formed this business back 2004 and I know that whilst we have had great success, that The Recruitment Group will take our team to that next level.”
The deal is set to take The Recruitment Group’s headcount to nearly 150 and increase its footprint to 15 locations nationwide.
