One of the UK's leading recruitment and training agencies Acorn has appointed a specialist consultant to help with the continued growth of its year-old IT Division.
Bina Kanani, who is originally from South Wales, is a Computer Science graduate and although only 26, already has a successful entrepreneurial background. While studying at university she spotted a gap in the market and helped set up the successful CardiffJobs.co.uk.
Since then she has worked extensively in IT recruitment in the Midlands and has now taken up the role of IT Recruitment Consultant and help drive Acorn’s expansion across Wales, the South West and the Midlands. Bina will report to IT Operations Manager Dave Sadler who is also a Computer Science graduate.
Mr Sadler said: “We’re delighted to have Bina on board. We were looking to recruit another computer science graduate who’d bring with them a specialist understanding of IT and so could relate very closely to our clients and their needs. Bina has all that, along with excellent experience in IT recruitment and an outstanding entrepreneurial flare.
“Our IT Division was set up as a pilot scheme 14 months ago, focusing on the needs of both existing Acorn clients and new clients in South Wales. It proved to be very successful and is now firmly established and continuing to expand. We’re now offering specialist IT recruitment to clients in the West Country and the Midlands.”
Lewis Fawsitt, Head of Permanent Recruitment and who heads the IT Division, said; “Dave Sadler’s extensive experience and expertise in the IT sector was key to us becoming so well-established in only our first year. Now we have followed the same blueprint and recruited Bina who also has genuine IT expertise and experience in IT recruitment, which I’m sure will be the key to our continued success.”
Established in 1992, Acorn has 32 branches across the UK.
Acorn places up to 5,500 people into about 750 different client companies each week. The company also delivers training to more than 3,000 individuals and makes 1,500 permanent placements every year.
