Kingdom expands in the recruitment sector

Support services firm, Kingdom Services Group, continues with its strategic expansion plans having acquired Manchester-based Contact Industrial Recruitment Ltd, a specialist in the recruitment sectors of driving, industrial, waste and recycling and managed services.

Founded in 1997, Contact Recruitment has an extensive portfolio of clients and will use Kingdom’s platform to develop further future recruitment growth throughout the UK.

Terry Barton BA Hons Law, Chief Executive Officer of Kingdom said: “Providing compliant workforce solutions has always been our core business strength. The acquisition of Contact not only seriously increases our recruitment sector market share but also offers our current and new customers a great national recruitment solution in an ever-changing regulatory landscape.

“Strategic acquisitions has always formed part of our growth strategy. It is extremely important that when we acquire a business that there is a culture and values fit to that of Kingdom. Throughout all our negotiations we were incredibly impressed with Michael McIntyre (CEO of Contact Recruitment) as a person and with what he has achieved. It will be very much `business as usual’ with the same great people providing the same great service. 

“Kingdom will support, guide and enhance the integration of Contact with our expertise, technology and software solutions to deliver a new and dynamic premier national recruitment service called Kingdom Recruitment.”

Michael McIntyre, owner and CEO of Contact Recruitment said: “Joining the Kingdom family will open many new opportunities and will allow my team and I to offer our customers the full range of services Kingdom offer. The Kingdom leadership team and I share the same aspirations and I’m excited about being a key part in the journey which is being created through this acquisition. I will continue to drive our business forward and provide the same level of customer focused interaction that has been the bedrock of our great service.
