iMultiply, the finance and accountancy recruiter, has secured Edinburgh Airport, iMetafilm and Blackwood Housing Association as clients during a busy first quarter.
The company plans to add about six staff to its current complement of 17.
The firm is running an AI-focused event: Artificial Intelligence, the Business Reality, at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics on 3 May featuring keynote speakers Melinda Matthews Clarkson, CEO of the UK’s first digital skills academy CodeClan, FinTech Scotland CEO Stephen Ingledew, and Colin Hewitt, CEO and founder of cash management startup, Float.
Founder and CEO Kirsty Mackenzie said: “As AI continues to come to the fore across Scotland’s technology and business scene, it’s something we are increasingly examining with clients.”
Ably manages drilling crew hire
Ably Resources, an oil and gas recruitment consultancy in Glasgow, is benefiting from the Dutch government’s push towards sustainable energy.
Under the terms of a $1.1m geothermal drilling contract, Ably Resources recruited the specialist staff and will manage the crew for the duration of the project.
Mark Lombardi, managing director of Ably, said: “The specialist team recruited for this project have very specific expertise and skills. Geothermal energy is a new sector requiring state-of-the-art drilling capabilities.”
This is the second joint venture project for Ably Resources in the geothermal energy sector.
