We're delighted to finally share the news: We've officially completed our latest acquisition: MYNT Recruitment

Yes, that's right! We have expanded our footprint into Yorkshire with our 8th acquisition, well-known Yorkshire firm MYNT Recruitment. MYNT are an 8M turnover business and have offices in York, Hull and Rotherham. Like us, they specialise in recruiting for the Commercial, Industrial, Professional and Technical sectors and are built around providing the best possible services for their candidates and clients.

MYNT are a people business and work hard to build long term relationships with both clients and candidates which are founded on trust and mutual respect. Mynt have a highly committed team whose shared work ethic and values, remain at the heart of their business.

Our Group Managing Director Paul Hipkisshad this to say on the acquisition:

"This is a great milestone for us, as it signifies the next stage of our growth and another great business joining our family. Mynt and The Recruitment Group have a lot in common. Both companies share the same values and are dedicated to providing industry-leading service. Our combined expertise will bring loads of new job opportunities to Yorkshire”

Martin Shaw, managing director of MYNT, added:

When we were looking for a buyer for our business, we needed to find a company that shared our values, focus on customer service and who had the vision matched with the expertise to take MYNT Recruitment to the next stage of our development. I can’t wait to see how our business and employees develop in the future. It’s certainly exciting times and my team and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes us”.

For MYNT Founder, John Stanton who is now leaving the business to retire, the acquisition represents a move to the next level for the company:

"As I enter retirement, I am really pleased that Martin and I found a buyer who shares those exact same values and the ethos on which I formed this business back 2004 and I know that whilst we have had great success, that The Recruitment Group will take our team to that next level”

The deal is set to take our headcount to nearly 150 and increase our footprint to 15 locations nationwide.

Mynt's reputation and reach in the north compliment the rest of our branch network perfectly to make us a truly national business. We couldn't be happier to have them on board and can't wait to see what we'll achieve on the next stage of our journey to change the face of recruitment. Here's to a bright future!
