We unveil our UK expansion plans as we open new offices and undertake an exciting brand refresh!

We are pleased to unveil our UK expansion plans, which are supported by the recent opening of two new offices and an exciting company rebrand. This activity will allow us to enhance our network, infrastructure and all-important client and candidate relationships.

Our new offices are strategically located in key regions Liverpool, Merseyside, and Wakefield, West Yorkshire, to bring our clear values to the local recruitment markets, while supporting the vast array of jobs available in our core sectors. They include Industrial, Construction, Driving & Logistics, Engineering and Commercial.

Director Omair Akram commented “The new locations will enable us to enhance our service offering, candidate reach and recruitment solutions experience for each client, irrelevant of their size and needs. While continuing to support our new teams, led by branch managers Craig in Liverpool and Melanie in Wakefield and our existing teams in Wigan and Manchester, we are proactively seeking additional regional offices in Crewe, Burnley, Sheffield, Nottingham and Birmingham over the next 12 months.”

We are thrilled to add Wakefield branch to our growing team. It is a thriving recruitment agency, which always makes sure that both clients and candidates are receiving the best possible service. This is to ensure that its reputation stays at the high level which Melanie has worked so hard to build has over the past 18 years in recruitment.

Melanie oozes customer service knowledge and has a wealth of experience within warehouse distribution depots across the UK. She prides herself on building long lasting relationships, while keeping her service levels at a high standard and offering transparent, cost-effective recruitment solutions.

Melanie and her team are flexible enough to offer a 24-hours-a-day service to cover all shifts and have built up a strong availability list so that they can provide candidates as and when required during busy periods.

The office will complement the key CareerMakers sectors of Industrial, Construction and Driving across the Yorkshire regions, including Leeds, Huddersfield, Halifax, Wakefield and Bradford.

As a North West business, Yorkshire was always a very key move for CareerMakers and one we felt, with the right person at the helm, would enhance our brand and service offering further across the region. The transport links between Manchester and Leeds are advanced and quick, allowing us to effortlessly move north without having to compromise on our multi-branch service.

The Industrial sector in particular in this region is growing considerably, with a number of large international and national distribution and manufacturing companies operating there, some of which have been working with us from our Manchester HQ. 

Having a local presence and team just simply affords us a more confident client offering, as well as a more in depth regional workforce knowledge, something we offer extensively to all of our clients and candidates.

Not too far from the Lancashire border, our Wakefield base now helps us continue to expand our network of candidates and clients from the already successful North Lancashire regions of Rochdale, Burnley and Blackburn. It also allows us to progress our presence throughout key northern cities and local towns.

CareerMakers in Liverpool opened during the summer and is growing in strength and reputation week by week. Like all of our locations, Liverpool is an incredible, vibrant city which is full of culture and business across our key sectors of Industrial Warehousing, Transport and Construction. 

The region has always been close to our hearts through the connections we have made via our Wigan office in the past four years. We are now able to better support all of our present and future clients with their agency needs, as well as the many people in Merseyside who are looking for support and help in finding work locally.

Craig is Liverpool born and bred and carries an excellent recruitment track record across the region. He has over 10 years’ worth of experience in supplying temp labour across our sectors. Craig and the team are without doubt making great strides to grow our presence in Liverpool and continue to highlight the great service we provide candidates and clients across the North West.

The aim of our rebrand and office openings are to position CareerMakers as one of the most prominent recruitment firms in the UK. We also wish to grow all areas of our considerable portfolio of staffing services and resources.

Our fast expanding infrastructure will enable us to connect a host of top businesses with the best talent in the UK.
