A new multi-sector recruitment company has launched in Coventry and is already set to expand as it looks to hire a new member of staff to cater for strong demand.
Empowered Personnel has opened at Warwick Gate, based in Warwick Row, after being launched by recruitment expert Louise Moore.
Louise has more than 21 years of experience in the industry, having worked her way up to regional director of a national recruitment agency where she specialised in logistics and manufacturing and production.
Keen to return to a more forward-facing role working with both clients and candidates, Louise, originally from Nuneaton and now living in Leicestershire, decided to launch her own business in Coventry where she had a strong knowledge of the market.
She was assisted in finding a property for the business by Ross Bendall, of Midlands based commercial property specialists Holt Commercial, and signed a five year lease at Warwick Gate.
Empowered Personnel, which provides recruitment services across the West Midlands in the transport, industrial, engineering and commercial sectors, has three members of staff and is now advertising for a fourth recruitment consultant after seeing a successful start.
Louise said “We’ve really hit the ground running and have worked very hard to quickly build up some fantastic clients and candidates.
It’s been a dream of mine to start my own business, and I knew the time was right when I found myself travelling a lot in my former role. I missed the client and candidate engagement and was keen to get back to what I love most about working in recruitment.
The name of the business means a lot to me as I felt very empowered to do something for myself, and I knew I could make it successful.
Despite knowing the recruitment market very well in Coventry, I was very frustrated trying to find a property.
I then contacted Ross Bendall at Holt Commercial who went above and beyond to understand our business needs, find a modern property that is central and easily accessible, and even ensure that our service providers could access the property so we could launch the business smoothly.
Thanks to our broad client base which includes international logistics companies and global manufacturers, we are already looking to expand with a new member of staff.”
Ross said “We are delighted to welcome Louise and the team at Empowered Personnel to Warwick Gate.
Louise was looking for a modern premises which would appeal to both clients and candidates, and this property met her needs perfectly.
It is fantastic to hear that the company is not only helping the local economy by supporting both employers and job seekers, but is already experiencing growth by taking on an additional staff member. We wish the team every success for the future.”
Holt Commercial is also marketing around 1,500 sq ft of high quality office space on the 1st floor of Warwick Gate. Further details are available by calling Ross Bendall on 02476 555180.
