Livingston James group expands into Manchester

Scottish recruiter Livingston James Group has expanded into the North West of England with the opening of a new Manchester office.

Led by Sandra McKinnon, the Group has opened an arm of Rutherford Cross - its specialist senior finance recruitment business, in the city.  The Group currently has three other offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Guilford.

McKinnon, who has been with the firm for over seven years, was previously head of tax and treasury recruitment in Scotland for Rutherford Cross.  She will continue to specialise in the tax, treasury, and advisory in Manchester, as well as looking to expand the team in the North West.

Group co-founder Jamie Livingston commented: “The launch of the Manchester office comes on the back of a period of strong growth for the Group with headcount now approaching 40 colleagues and turnover on track to break £6m for the year.”

Other strategic initiatives by the Group in 2017 have included the launch of Technology & Business Change brand, Hamilton Forth, in May of this year, and the opening of an office in the South East of England.

The Livingston James Group was established in 2009 and comprises six specialist recruitment brands; Livingston James, Rutherford Cross, Drummond Bridge, Edison Bond, Amicus Ford, and Hamilton Forth.
