Runcorn launch heralds stepping-up of Acorn's north west growth plans

Acorn, one of the UK's leading recruitment and training specialists, which enjoyed a record £38.5m turnover in 2004/05, is targeting the North West of England to drive forward its next phase of growth.

The company, whose reputation has been built upon placing 'people' and 'professionalism' as central to its mission, is expanding its branch network by opening new premises in Runcorn, Cheshire, on Wednesday, November 2nd.

It will be the latest addition to Acorn's branches throughout Wales, the West Country, Edinburgh and Manchester. It also recently opened a new Wrexham branch to cover North East Wales and North West border.

Simon Mason, Regional Director said, "Runcorn and Widnes offer tremendous opportunities for Acorn, but we also aim to deliver people and services to a much wider geographical area that includes Liverpool, St Helens, Warrington, Chester, Ellesmere Port and the Wirral.

"Following on from our recent successes in Wrexham and Manchester and in response to local employers' needs, Acorn is becoming increasingly well-known for delivering value-for-money recruitment and training services across a range of key market sectors." 

The 250-strong company has secured premises at 81 High Street, Runcorn, for the branch.

The operation will service the large number of major employers seeking skilled and semi-skilled staff across the region, initially concentrating on commercial and technical vacancies.

Simon added, "For some time we have been looking carefully at a location for Acorn's first branch in the Runcorn area. The town is a perfect site because it is a busy, fast-growing town with superb access to the developing economy of the North West.

Simon added, ""It represents a major investment in premises and staff by Acorn and a move very much welcomed by the people and business in the area."

The company has been consistently honoured by the recruitment industry, and won both Best Regional Recruitment Firm and Gold Award Winner in the Professional Recruitment Awards in 2002. Acorn is a long-standing member of REC, the Recruitment & Employment Confederation, and is also accredited by both ISO and Investors in People.

On-going customer satisfaction measurement by Acorn of both its clients and candidates confirms that 98% of candidates say that they are looked after better by Acorn than other agencies, and 95% of its client companies would happily recommend Acorn to others.

Acorn was established in 1992, and as well as a regional branch network, the company has a number of specialist divisions covering education services, contract management, industrial, rail, European services, driving, office support, sales, contact centres, construction, technical & engineering, senior executive search & selection and a Learning & Development Division.
