A WORCESTERSHIRE recruitment firm has expanded its senior management team with a new appointment.

Redditch headquartered Workforce Staffing has welcomed experienced specialist James Ritchie to the company’s board, bringing more than 25 years’ experience in the sector to oversee the firm’s managed services offering.

The 50-year-old has enjoyed a career working within both regional and national businesses on multi- disciplined recruitment, management, sales and operations.

Mr Ritchie said: “Workforce has been expanding in recent years to meet the demands of recruiters all over central England. It is a company that is thriving but has retained a close and caring culture.

“I am delighted to be joining Paul and the team at such an exciting time and look forward to making a significant contribution in the months and years ahead."

Paul Alekna, Workforce Staffing chief executive, added: “It is a real coup for us to have recruited someone of James’ experience.

“He is a first-class appointment for us and has the exact credentials, drive and determination we look for. He brings a wealth of market knowledge and knows what our clients need now and in the future.”
