Simon Acres Recruitment has expanded its team and invested in bringing new talent into the industry with the appointment of four new trainees and one recruitment consultant, supporting KBB merchants.

Olesea Mabbutt, Marcus Lane, Viktoria Brzezowska and Cory Smith have all joined as trainee consultants. They will benefit from an in-house training plan. The dedicated plan includes training from Simon Acres Group consultants such as Ray Isted. As well as courses from others such as Builders Merchant Federation (BMF).

Kate Muggeridge has also joined the recruitment team. Kate has 5 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, and brings expertise in building and maintaining strong client relationships.

Ben Paine, Head of Recruitment at Simon Acres Recruitment said, “A key ethos of our business is that ‘People Build Business’. These appointments reflect our commitment to this.

“Many young people have found it challenging to start a career because of the restrictions of the past year. We are delighted to offer our four trainees this opportunity to build a career in the KBB industry, and to support KBB Merchants.

“There is strong demand for our recruitment services as we begin on the road map out of lockdown. And we know from the last lockdown, demand will soar once restrictions are fully lifted.”
