Fourth office for recruitment firm

Maxwell Bruce expands after opening in capital

Roddy DonaldsonScottish employment agency Maxwell Bruce, which specialises in engineering, construction and industrial roles, is to take on staff after moving to premises in Edinburgh’s west end.

A team of eight will staff the office, its fourth in Scotland in addition to Dundee, Dunfermline and Glasgow. A similar number are being hired for the Glasgow office. They will join the existing workforce of 21.

The announcement comes off the back of a successful 2014 for the agency, and its intention to fill at least 1,400 construction and engineering positions this year.

The new staff will specialise in industrial engineering staff, as well as temporary and permanent construction workers – from operatives to high level management. 

Roddy Donaldson, managing director of Maxwell Bruce, said: “As we enter our twenty-fifth year in the recruitment business, we’re seeing growth across the construction and engineering sectors, meaning increased demand for skilled staff across the country.

“The expansion and recruitment also support our long-term growth plans. We’re looking to increase our presence within the industry by doubling in size over the next three to five years. Growing our team and moving into the new Edinburgh office will really kick-start those plans.”

The firm placed almost 1,800 candidates – an 11-year high – last year and saw consistent revenue growth across all three of its offices.
