Recruiters in Bishops's Stortford join forces
Two well-established recruitment firms in Bishop’s Stortford have teamed up to give job seekers and employers an even better service.
AC Appointments, established in 1966 and acquired by Jonathan and Jane Walters in 1986, has teamed up with family-owned HR GO Recruitment.
HR GO has specialised in temporary and permanent recruitment in the town since 1999. AC Appointments has been based there for more than 50 years. It was one of the longest established recruitment businesses in Hertfordshire, Essex and Bedfordshire.
Fast-growing HR GO Recruitment is part of the HR GO Group of companies founded in 1957. It has invested more than a million pounds in new technology in the past year alone.
AC Appointments is now known as HR GO Recruitment. The merger boosts the combined number of staff at the HR GO branch in Northgate End, Bishop’s Stortford, to nine.
Cindy Hare, managing director of HR GO Recruitment, said: “We warmly welcome the AC Appointments’ team to the HR GO family. Between us, we have more than 100 years of experience of finding the right job for candidates and the right candidates for employers.
“Our combined experience will enable us to help them in a competitive and fast-changing recruitment market, especially in the challenging context of Brexit.
“We are proud of our friendly, personal and professional service. This development will enable HR GO in Bishop’s Stortford to achieve further growth and continue to give excellent service in the town and surrounding areas.”
Jonathan and Jane Walters said it was the right time to move their operations to HR GO. “We have been proud to be an independent recruitment agency serving the area for many decades. We wanted to join an equally independent family business with the benefit of greater resources and latest technology. We found the ideal partner in HR GO.”
