A leading recruitment agency, that has helped thousands of local people to find work, is celebrating ten years of success in Gloucestershire.

Acorn, one of the UK’s specialist recruitment and training agencies, opened its doors in Gloucester in 2007 and since then the branch has gone on to build a reputation as one of the most effective recruitment agencies in the area.

The branch, based on Eastgate Street, is staffed by experienced consultants and fills vacancies for permanent and temporary positions across Gloucestershire with well-known local businesses, including Leoni Temco, SLG and D.A.D.

Gloucester’s Acorn celebrates 10 years of success

Branch Manager, Nikki Overbury who manages the branch believes the longevity of Acorn within this area is being able to offer a highly valuable, honest and face-to-face recruitment service.

She said: “We are delighted to be celebrating a decade of business here in Gloucester. A large reason for our success is down to the relationships we’ve developed with great employers and jobseekers in Gloucester and surrounding areas.


“Employers come to us as they know we can save them valuable time and money with their recruitment processes, and of course with our ever growing database of good quality candidates, we can expand the reach of their jobs to attract applicants from all over the UK.

"We are in a prime position to offer a variety of choices to anyone looking for a new job or their next career challenge.”

“On the other hand, jobseekers come to us as they know we work with quality employers who offer benefits like flexible working, training and career progression plans.  What’s more, we have nearby branches in Chippenham and Bristol, and further afield in the South West and South Wales, so we are in a prime position to offer a variety of choices to anyone looking for a new job or their next career challenge.”

Specialist areas

The branch manages permanent and temporary roles within a variety of industries and specialist areas including Sales, Customer Service, Project Management, Travel, Marketing, Industrial, and Technical and Engineering. 

The team currently has a number of vacancies, such as Customer Support Executive, Goods Inward Assistant and CNC Machinists. They also have specialist IT, driving and nursing & healthcare teams, who place people in Gloucestershire and throughout the rest of the UK.

Brian Cutts, Managing Director for Leoni Temco who has partnered with the branch since 2007, said: “We’ve worked with Nikki and her team for over nine years and we’re always impressed by their commitment to find the most suitable candidates for our roles.

“Leoni Temco would like to congratulate the branch on their 10th birthday and wish them continued success for the future.”

 Maria Larcombe, Director of Operations (South) oversees the Gloucester Branch. She said: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Gloucester Branch for reaching this significant milestone.”

“In our latest customer satisfaction survey, an impressive 97% of our clients stated that they’d use our Gloucester Branch again, which is testament to the service Nikki and her team provides.

Honest and open 

“The team’s honest and open approach obviously works well and is integral to the branch’s success. Ten years is a brilliant achievement, an anniversary we wouldn’t have reached without our hardworking consultants, valued clients and of course, all the jobseekers that trust in us to find them employment.”

Maria concluded: “2017 is shaping up to be a busy year for us as a company and the tenth birthday of our Gloucester Branch is definitely something worth celebrating as we continue to bring value to all our customers.”
