New division, new office and new hires for Glasgow recruitment specialist

A Glasgow recruitment specialist has launched a venture to help employers resource short-term projects and manage contractors after hailing a period of “unprecedented growth”.

Cruinn Consulting said its new projects operation would allow businesses and public bodies to secure talent via a network of contractors, where full-time appointments present a long-term cost risk. Founder and managing director Claire Gillespie said: “We’ve seen huge demand for short-term contractor support, and we know that finding the right people and managing the admin around that can be quite challenging. Cruinn Projects will help businesses to respond quickly to market demand and take advantage of new opportunities, without having to add substantial cost with full-time hires.”

The move comes as the firm said it had experienced unprecedented growth during 2022 and into the early part of this year, working across the UK, the US, Italy, Germany and Mexico. To accommodate growth, the business has agreed a lease on office space in the Schoolhouse building in Glasgow’s Kinning Park. Its new neighbours include Channel 4 News and Sub Club.

Cruinn focuses on senior-level appointments across a range of sectors including technology, pharma, professional services and retail. On the back of the recent growth, it has recruited Matt Hinton and Hannah Cromwell as delivery managers. Both will work closely with Gillespie and director David Sutherland, who joined the team last summer. Hinton interned with Cruinn last year before accepting the full-time role, with Cromwell joining from Hays at the beginning of April. Cruinn clients have ranged from owner-managed small businesses to FTSE-listed companies.
