Specialist IT recruitment company Be-IT is investing over £100,000 in a new central Glasgow headquarters, as part of an expansion into new markets including Ireland and the North West of England.
The company provides specialist recruiting services for professionals within IT, Digital, Project Management and Leadership roles.
Be-IT, which currently has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast is forecasting turnover in excess of £12 million in its fourth full year of trading. As part of the expansion, Be-IT has also restructured its upper management, with Nikola Kelly becoming managing director and Gareth Biggerstaff appointed CEO.
Be-IT is now considering strategic acquisitions to help it achieve its growth plans.
Mr Biggerstaff told DIGIT: “The new Glasgow office really is a significant landmark in the journey of the business. It proves that our brand is transportable and further expansion is more than viable. The new facility will allow us to cement our position in Scotland and aid our expansion plans into Ireland.
“November was a landmark month for us as turnover exceeded £1 million for the first time, which reflects the buoyancy of the market. We are a young business and our strategy is always to expand and scale as we operate, the time is now right for us to take the next step.”
Be-IT’s new managing director, Nikola Kelly added: “My new appointment will allow me to concentrate more on the operational running of the business whilst I shall look at options of further growth in the future. The Northern Ireland economy is growing. Investment and support for high tech cyber, fintech and service organisations has promoted a growing tech hub in NI.
“However, there is a lack of experienced technical staff to ensure continued growth. We plan to bring the UK and Northern Ireland marketplaces together and service demand in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland with candidates from mainland UK. These are exciting times for the business and we look forward to further expansion and growth in 2018.”
