A RECRUITMENT firm is celebrating its second year in business after almost quadrupling its sales from year one.
Newcastle-based Drayton Partners has already made a positive start to a new financial year and hopes to achieve sales of £1m in the next 18 months.
Launched in 2010, the firm predominantly works across the retail sectors but has a growing North East operation.
The team specialises in mid to senior management recruitment and has progressed from only two directors at launch to a team of five.
Building on its successes so far, year three will see the business further develop its North East proposition.
It will combine this regional focus whilst also building its international presence, having already made successful placements in Europe, Asia and North America.
The firm hopes to grow its workforce to between 10 and 15 within the next three years.
Joint founder Rob Seery said: “We have enjoyed an excellent first two years of trading and our performance has exceeded all our forecasts.”
