HOT 100 chart topper Falcon Green sells minority stake

Former Recruiter HOT 100 table-topping construction and engineering recruiter Falcon Green has agreed a deal to sell a minority stake in the business to two private investors.

The investment will help the company accelerate its growth and capitalise on the government’s plans to invest in infrastructure projects and public housing construction.  

With 99% of its revenue coming from temporary placements, the company has developed long-term relationships with over 100 well-known property companies such as Galliard Homes, Berkley Group, Willmott Dixon, McLaren and Bowmer & Kirland. Construction of the Shard is among the major projects Falcon Green has supplied staff for.

The firm already has a strong record of growth, ranking first in Recruiter’s 2017 FAST 50, before going on to be recognised as the fastest-growing recruiter in Europe by the FT. In 2018 it was the top-ranked recruiter in Recruiter’s HOT 100, and in the following year it was only just pipped into second place by Sheffield Howarth. Founded in 2012, with Jack O’Connell, Joseph Sweeney and Kieran Nestor as directors, Falcon Green was advised by Cavendish Corporate Finance.
