Russell Taylor Group acquires Assist Resourcing for undisclosed sum

Russell Taylor Group are delighted to announce the acquisition of national specialist recruiter, Assist Resourcing Group.

The acquisition which completed on Monday 23rd January 2017, sees the Assist Resourcing business now becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Russell Taylor Group and will trade under the name of Assist Resourcing UK Limited.

Assist Resourcing Group is one of the most recognised volume resourcing businesses in the UK supporting some of the most recognised brand names across the UK.

Over the past 5 years the business has achieved record-breaking growth becoming the fastest growing recruiter in all sectors in 2015. This has been on the backdrop of the fantastic dedicated and service levels that the business has delivered to its customers.

In early 2016 the business suffered a contraction in revenue which was as a result of supporting the transition of a significant number of workers to its long term customers and not as a result of any business loss.

We are pleased to have been able to complete this acquisition and be in a position to provide the business with the long-term commitment and financial support that it requires to continue to build what is a fantastic business.  

There will be no changes to the day to day business operations with all key staff and senior management transferring to the Russell Taylor Group.

Russell Taylor Group was established in 2002, a successful and fast growing group of recruitment businesses which will deliver revenues in excess of 35m this year. The Group consists of a portfolio of complimentary businesses including permanent recruitment, onsite flexible resourcing, engineering and technical staffing solutions provided to some of the UK’s most respected brands.

Ben Russell CEO of Russell Taylor Group commented: “The acquisition of Assist Resourcing Group is a key building block in our growth and development plans. Assist has relationships with its existing customers that span over 20 years and shares the values and culture that we have built at Russell Taylor"

Darren Cunningham, Managing Director for Assist Resourcing added: "This is an exciting stage in our journey, the talented team at Russell Taylor Group will provide the added leadership, experience and resources to help drive our business to the next level.”
