Change Recruitment has expanded one of its divisions with the appointment of a senior construction recruitment specialist and five consultants.
Andrew Stephen becomes director of construction, property & infrastructure, bringing more than 20 years’ industry experience to the post. He previously led one of the largest construction recruitment businesses in Scotland.
He has appointed five consultants to the team, who are Michael Waugh, Emmet West, Damian Carney, Antonia Gardner and David Lockett.
The growth of the construction division is the first major investment by Change following the the formation of The Taranata Group.
Change became part of the group last year following its acquisition by entrepreneur Paul Atkinson.
Mark McFall, managing director, Change Recruitment said: “Andrew’s appointment marks the next step in our ambitious plans.
“We are aiming to achieve significant presence in the construction sector and build a substantial business that will help clients and candidates in this vitally important area of the economy.
“Construction and property recruitment is a huge potential market for us in Scotland, the UK and internationally. It offers a client base that we largely don’t serve currently.”
Plans are in place to further grow the construction team headcount during 2018.
