Barry McKeown and Peter Ross, Co-owners of the APSCo accredited, long established recruitment business Morgan Ryder, have made a significant investment in the Liverpool region by opening up new premises. The move will allow for more than triple the headcount creating a volume of new career opportunities for talented individuals. The move is part of a continued expansion plan that’s aligned to meet the increasing demand for recruitment support across manufacturing, engineering, process and supply chain industries.
Barry McKeown said: “There’s a buzz of excitement across the business at the moment. However, growing into this space will be a serious challenge. We have extremely high standards and we experience difficulties finding not just the skills we need but the individuals that will fit with our culture. The team here have been with us for 9 years on average, one in particular passed the 15 years milestone at the end of last year. This reflects their exceptionally high level of dedication, commitment plus market leading experience and stability.
Peter Ross said: “We already have an established culture that is both inspiring and rewarding, this new office will simply provide our employees with a spacious, ultra-modern office environment that is bright and well equipped with the tools needed to react quickly to client needs. Advanced I.T infrastructure, leading operating systems, intuitive recruitment management software, video conferencing, “dry-wipe” walls you can write on and motorised Scandinavian designed sit/stand desks.”
Morgan Ryder recruit a range of skills from entry level professional up to board level executive on both a permanent and contract basis. Their customer portfolio spans all modern manufacturing, engineering and supply chain sectors. All of their talent is home grown and employees are trained using Morgan Ryder’s R3 principals as part of their methods of best practice.
Terry Murphy (Director & Head of Executive Search) said: “Skill shortages across all of our markets are creating a strong increase in demand for Executive Search, Managed Services and the associated Employer Branding / Social Media Marketing activity. Whilst we have been pioneering this method of talent attraction for years, never has it been so important to our clients and never has the market evolved so quickly. This new office will allow us to stay ahead of the game by continuing to grow expertise in these areas with the objective of relieving pressures caused poor talent supply.”
