Wild appoints two new directors

Wild Recruitment in Portsmouth has expanded into bigger offices and promoted two of its long-standing staff to directors

Wild Recruitment in Portsmouth has expanded into bigger offices and promoted two of its long-standing staff to directors.

Kate Weeks and Jennifer McGrath have stepped up to the board of the fast-growing company that has more than 50 employees.

As well as its main branch in Portsmouth’s Arundel Street, Wild has offices in Poole in Dorset, Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, London and St Albans in Hertfordshire.

New director appointees Kate and Jenny have worked at the company for twelve and nine years respectively and have been crucial in the success of the business.

The new Portsmouth offices are located in the same building as the previous ones but are much larger and on street level.

They offer massively increased space and include meeting, interview and training rooms.

With a new ‘built environment’ division having been created to address the need for professionals working in and around the construction sector, Wild’s growth shows no signs of slowing down.

In 2011 Wild was purchased by Berry Recruitment Group (BRG) and its co-founder and MD Michelle Stewart now sits on the BRG board.

Michelle said: “Since we became part of BRG we have grown and expanded rapidly.

“With me on the board of the parent company it made absolute sense to create two new directors at Wild.

“Kate and Jennie have worked here for many years and know the industry and our clients incredibly well.

“Kate’s responsibilities now include overseeing the industrial and driving divisions and Jennie oversees the commercial division in Portsmouth and Poole.

“Our new offices in Portsmouth are proving really successful not only because of the increase in size but because of the increase in business off the street.”

Wild in Portsmouth provides workers in the following areas: customer service and sales, office and finance, built environment, industrial and driving and senior selection.
