The company, which specialises in the supply of IT, media and engineering staff in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, said it is confident of more headcount expansion in the next six months.

Ben Broughton, director, told Recruiter: “We have grown our own internal recruitment division and our – retained and existing – client base is growing all the time. Each month we see increases on deal numbers as well as contract numbers.

“Our main growth areas have been engineering – where we’ve seen solid retention numbers from our key team as well as cracking figures from our rookies – and Manchester, where we recently launched Premier Media.

“Overall contract numbers are up 14% while average permanent figures are up 7%.”

The company, which comprises Premier IT, Premier Media and Premier Engineering, came in eighth in the HOT 100’s HOT 10 IT & Telecoms recruiters.
