FINANCIALS: Staffline trades in line with expectations

Staffline is trading in line with expectations, according to a trading update, released by the recruitment and training organisation.

For the six months to 30 June 2018, the release reveals the group’s recruitment division has continued to perform strongly, while four acquisitions made this year have helped the group increase its coverage in certain geographies.

The period also saw the group roll out its customer experience strategy, enabling it to gather data on workers’ experience on site, which it expects will feed into retaining both employees and customers.

Within PeoplePlus, the group’s training, skills and wellbeing services division, Staffline says its transition away from Work Programme contracts remains on track.

It adds it continues to benefit from its investment in the Apprenticeship Levy space and has made “good progress” delivering employability learning network Fair Start Scotland, which launched in April. It adds it continues to develop a “strong” pipeline across a number of areas, including devolved government and prison education.

The group will provide a further update at the time of its interim results on Wednesday 25 July 2018.
