Award-winning recruitment agency to move into town


AWARD winning recruitment agency Encore Personnel is to open a branch in Warrington – expanding its network from its Midlands roots.

Established in Leicester in 2002, Encore employs more than 200 staff and provides temporary and permanent jobs to the engineering, industrial, driving, energy, manufacturing, managed services and professional services sectors.
The £95m turnover business’s newest branch in Warrington town centre will be headed up by Rob Price, a seasoned recruiter with more than 15 years’ experience in the industry.

Rob, who has been operating at director level for the past five years, said: “I’m delighted to be joining Encore at such an exciting and pivotal time for the business. My background is sales through and through, having kicked off my career in recruitment at 18 years old. Within six months I was a branch manager and I was then quickly promoted to regional manager, so it is fair to say my drive and ambition to be at the forefront of successful recruitment strategies fits perfectly with Encore’s vision to become the leading recruiter in the North West.
“The goal is to establish our new Warrington branch as Encore’s HQ in the region, putting us on the map as the go-to, first choice recruiter initially for industrial roles, but then plugging in all of our services offerings from driving to energy. I’d like to have a strong team of consultants in place by the end of this year with a goal of 15-20 customers by Q1 of 2023. We’re setting the bar high already – from being an unknown operator in the region, we’re already placing 25 candidates a week so I know our aim of 100 placements a week by Christmas is well within our capabilities.”
Rob’s goal is to grow his team in Warrington in chorus with new customer wins, with the aim of having at least four consultants operating from the branch by the end of this year.

Encore Personnel managing director Pete Taylor said: “Our strategy for opening a new branch – which is now a tried and tested approach given we’ve established a presence in every major Midlands town over the last two decades – is to ensure we have the right person to head it up and a solid requirement for our style and reputation in the region.
“Rob is undoubtedly that person given his outstanding track record in matching business need with exactly the right candidates in the North West. He knows the area, its challenges and opportunities like the back of his hand and so is perfectly placed to establish Encore as the recruiter of choice from our new office in Warrington town centre.”
