Kingdom completes acquisition of Spectre Recruitment Group

Kingdom Services Group has acquired Spectre Recruitment Group, a provider of specialist staffing and recruitment services to some of the UK’s most recognisable brands, placing 1,500 colleagues each day across several sectors.

The acquired business will be rebranded as Kingdom People to align with the existing Kingdom recruitment brand.

Managing Director Mike Rogers, alongside his Senior Leadership and Management Team, who have steered Spectre’s recruitment business so far will continue to be at the helm, with Rogers now becoming Chief Operating Officer of Kingdom People.

Kingdom says the transition will be seamless, and it will be business as usual for Spectre Recruitment Group’s clients and 1,500 colleagues – but with the added benefits that being part of Kingdom Services Group can provide.

Kingdom will now provide wider industry-specific experience, an increased national resourcing capability, additional operational best practice, and increased investment in innovation that adds value to customers and employees. With the broader capability of a Group now with 10,500+ colleagues and revenues of £250 million, Kingdom is able to offer a “one stop” service to include specialist areas such as security, cleaning, recruitment, and healthcare.

Terry Barton, CEO of Kingdom Services Group, said of the acquisition: “Throughout the acquisition process I have got to know Mike Rogers and his SLT and it is very clear we share the same values and ambitions to be the best-in-class recruitment provider in the UK and to provide service with care.

“Spectre has a strong trading performance, a solid brand and excellent reputation. They have a great energy about them, and they attract and retain good people. The acquisition further strengthens the well-established and existing recruitment and staffing proposition we provide through Kingdom People.”

In a joint statement, Sceptre’s Founders Nick Hall and Matt Cullen said: “Having successfully grown and developed the Spectre Recruitment business, we are pleased to announce the sale to Kingdom Service Group. A proven and trusted staffing and recruitment partner to many leading organisations, the business now moves into its next exciting phase of development, with Kingdom at the helm. The acquisition combines Kingdom and Spectre’s substantial national support and expertise to become a major player in the UK staffing and recruitment sector.”
