MPA Recruitment has been named in the London Stock Exchange Group’s sixth annual report on ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’, which identifies the UK’s fastest growing businesses. MPA is the only recruitment company from Northern Ireland to be recognised in this report.
Founded in 1997, MPA Recruitment is one of the largest staffing providers in Northern Ireland, employing over 2500 people each year, throughout six offices in Derry-Londonderry, Belfast, Omagh, Armagh, Ballymena and Coleraine. MPA also has a presence in the Middle East and India.
Managing Director MPA Recruitment, Paul McQue said, “When I received the letter I had to read it several times. To be a part of this prestigious report and for our organisation to have this recognition of our dynamic growth, is exceptional. The company is very proud and I’m extremely proud of what the MPA team has achieved to date.”
To be selected for the list, businesses had to outperform their sector peers. The result is a unique and varied list of the UK’s most dynamic companies. Over two-thirds of the companies are newly identified including MPA Recruitment. Overall revenue growth of the companies featured in the report was 108%, up significantly from 70% last year. MPA’s revenues have more than trebled in three years and further growth is forecast over the next five years as the company continues to expand its global footprint.
Among those contributing to the forewords was the RT Hon Theresa May MP, the Prime Minister, she stated that the report “pulls together in one place those exciting companies that are breaking new ground and making a real difference to the world… I have always said that setting up and running a business is one of the most socially responsible things you can do. So finally, I want to thank the hardworking people behind the businesses in this report for the jobs they create and the contribution they make to our country – I believe they provide an inspiration to us all.”
Paul McQue attributed the company’s growth to its outstanding team throughout all of their branches and the loyalty of their diverse customer base, saying; “We have both, outstanding staff and clients within the sector and here at MPA, I believe we have led the way in Northern Ireland in embracing new technology and its utilisation in how we interact with our candidates and our clients, driving sustainable innovation in the recruitment market.
“We work in partnership with our ever-growing client base, ensuring that we meet their needs. To have clients who have been with us since we opened our doors 22 years ago says it all.”
This announcement comes on the back of MPA winning the North West Best Company of the Year last month in Londonderry-Derry and being named as fastest growing multi sector recruitment company and placed tenth overall in the Recruiter’s Fast 50 at the beginning of the year.
