Fast-growth niche recruitment business, Coleman James has appointed Stuart Ashton as a Senior Consultant.  The Newcastle-based firm, which focuses on the construction and built environment sectors, has experienced rapid planned growth since it was founded in 2016.  Since last October it has experienced growth of 534% and is on target to reach its first million turnover milestone in its current financial year.
Founded by experienced recruitment specialist Andrew Mackay, the business has been built on developing close working relationships with directors of significant industry employers.   Having established a team of six experienced recruiters, Andrew has expanded the business into the architectural, building services and interior design markets to supplement its core building & civil engineering markets, placing high quality candidates into professional, white collar roles.
Stuart joins Coleman James from AndersElite where he's spent the last 6 years recruiting in the construction sector across the North East and Scotland. Stuart's remit for Coleman James is commercial construction and he will be leveraging the national contacts established by Andrew Mackay and his team.
"I'm delighted to welcome Stuart to the team, we continue to invest in experienced consultants with exceptional sector knowledge. Our niche focus and relationship-led approach to recruitment across Construction and the Built Environment sets us apart from our competitors and has been integral to the success our firm has achieved to date. We have ambitious growth plans and the solid foundations we have established for the business enables us to invest in the best talent for our team and deliver a national service from our North East base."
