NEW jobs are coming to Worcester as a city-centre company expands to the unit next door.

GMP Recruitment has bought the building next to it in Copenhagen Street, allowing it to take on more staff.

The company more than doubled the square footage of its headquarters after acquiring a neighbouring property, giving it more than 2,500 sq ft of extra space after it was vacated by a previous tenant. 

The decision comes after 12 months of growth for the company, leading to them needing more space and staff to handle the growth in clients.

Supporting by its expanded office space, the company is also planning to hire six new staff to accommodate the increase in demand for its recruitment services.

Mike Pincott, director at GMP Recruitment said: "We have decided to expand our offices to cope with an exceptional period of growth which has seen us winning new clients and taking on more staff.

"We were at full capacity and couldn’t give the team the perfect space we wanted so the expansion comes at a perfect time.

"By doubling the size of our offices we’re now able to able to give our 10-strong team more working space, larger meeting areas and also a much-improved break-out space where they can relax and have lunch.

"We can now comfortably accommodate 18 people and are planning to take on another six over the coming months.

"It’s an exciting time for us as we enter a busy summer and things are certainly going in the right direction."

GMP, founded by Mr Pincott and fellow director Gareth Matts, now place more than 1,000 people a year into permanent or temporary office, engineering, manufacturing and logistics jobs.

The company works with organisations across the industrial, legal, finance, logistics, office and hospitality sectors.

Aside from the firm’s main recruitment base in Worcester, they are also planning to open new offices in Gloucester and Hereford.

Elsewhere in the county, new jobs are also set to be created at Evesham-based company Nationwide Produce, which is spending £3.5million to expand its own base of operations in the town.
