Property specialist deverellsmith acquires Broomham Recruitment

London-based deverellsmith, the recruitment talent solutions partner for the property industry, has acquired the entire issued share capital of Broomham Recruitment.

Broomham Recruitment specialises in the estate agency, property and prop tech sectors of the property market.

According to deverellsmith, the acquisition, which was advised by legal advisory and law firm Wright Hassall, is consistent with the group strategy of accelerating growth in the recruitment business through strategic acquisitions and widening our footprint outside of the greater London area.

Andrew Deverell-Smith, CEO and founder of deverellsmith, said: “By joining the deverellsmith team, our clients benefit from the leadership, exceptional market knowledge and network connections Nicola Broomham and her team have to offer. The Broomham team see the world through the same lens as we do at deverellsmith, they care deeply about the sector and enriching the lives of all those they work with. Our clients will benefit from broader access to the best talent and a determined partner committed to enabling innovation and growth.”
The acquisition of Broomham Recruitment fits into deverellsmith’s strategy “to support our customers in making smarter decisions”. Together with the recent launch of ‘ds success’, an approach to hiring talent with no fixed traditional recruitment fees, and “the establishment of our RPO company re-enforces deverellsmith as the market leader in estate agency and talent solutions”, Deverell-Smith’s statement said.

deverellsmith operates in the UK and US.
