Change for the better as turnover soars

Change, the recruitment group which specialises in the financial services sector, has seen turnover rise by more than 50 per cent over the past year.

The company, which was acquired in a management buy-out three years ago and employs 100 staff across its Glasgow and Edinburgh offices, is also planning to recruit more than 30 employees to meet increased demand from domestic and overseas clients. Turnover in the year to 30 April reached 14.7 million, up from 9.8m the previous year.

Last month group income reached the highest level since 2008 with international fees almost twice those in May 2010. Change said it had made significant progress in moving into emerging foreign markets as well as benefiting from increased demand for IT recruitment in UK financial services.
