Media Release: Success of major re-branding brings Rise Professions fully into Rise Group

RISE Group, the fast-growing recruitment consultancy exclusively dedicated to Scotland, has undertaken a significant re-branding of its accountancy, legal, financial services and management consulting teams under the new group division, Rise Professions.

This brings together the group’s combined skills in these disciplines and includes Rise Hammond, the well-established Glasgow and Edinburgh-based specialists which contained the business formerly known as Hammond Resources.

Organised within a sector-leading service model, all of Rise Group’s divisions continue to be focused on securing tangible advantage for clients across their varying disciplines, specifically by helping them make significant savings in recruitment time and costs.

Rise Group, which places over 5,000 people a year in high quality jobs with name-brand employers, offers specialised recruitment capability in professional services and executive recruitment, contact centres, hospitality and catering.

Gregor Campbell, Rise MD, who has forged the business into a robust and agile market operator, said: “The development of Rise Professions has brought together a well-established team from Rise Hammond with other experts we have brought into the business, enabling a sharper focus on professional recruitment in key specialist fields. We have significantly increased market share through targeted investment to support greater success.

“Our entire sector is suffering from the downturn but we are perhaps in a better position than most thanks to our trading performance and our backing by Murray Capital, the private equity arm of Murray International Holdings.

“As a result, we intend to continue with our growth strategy by seeking to acquire good operators in the recruitment sector which add value and offer synergy within our group. Equally, we continue to be on the look-out for experienced recruitment consultants and teams whose values and ambitions fit our own.”
