Xchangeteam Group expands over the summer

Xchangeteam, the UKís leading independent recruiter across Marketing, Media and Communications, continues its successful expansion

Xchangeteam, the UK’s leading independent recruiter across Marketing, Media and Communications, continues its successful expansion. Staying ahead of industry developments despite a somewhat unpredictable economic outlook, the company has increased its headcount across every sector over the summer as it seeks to strengthen its client and candidate offering. The successful launch of Xchangeteam’s South West Office and its specialist Technical division over the last year has consolidated the company’s growth across niche markets. In addition, Xchangeteam’s Media team has capitalised on the recent rise in advertising spend and increased its headcount by hiring a broadcast media specialist. The PR & Communications team continues to go from strength to strength with the addition of two new agents, one of whom specialises in public sector recruitment, further demonstrating Xchangeteam’s solid foothold in this sector.
