Recruitment specialist makes £100,000 investment in future

Scottish recruitment company Be-IT is set to open new bespoke headquarters as part of an expansion strategy into new markets.

The investment of more than £100,000 in a 1,750sqft office in central Glasgow, will bolster plans to capitalise on tech industry growth in Ireland and north-west England.

Be-IT, predicted to achieve a turnover of more than £12m in its fourth full year of trading, has also undergone a management restructure with Nikola Kelly promoted to managing director and Gareth Biggerstaff CEO.

Biggerstaff said: “The new Glasgow office really is a significant landmark in the journey of the business. It proves that our brand is transportable and further expansion is more than viable.

“The new facility will allow us to cement our position in Scotland and aid our expansion plans into Ireland.

“November was a landmark month for us as turnover exceeded £1m for the first time, which reflects the buoyancy of the market.

“We are a young business and our strategy is always to expand and scale as we operate, the time is now right for us to take the next step.”

Be-IT specialise in recruiting professionals for it, digital, project management and leadership jobs.

Having established a strong client base in the west of Scotland, Be-IT believe there are significant opportunities across the island of Ireland, and is strongly considering strategic acquisitions.

MD Nikola Kelly added: “My new appointment will allow me to concentrate more on the operational running of the business whilst I shall look at options of further growth in the future.

“The Northern Ireland economy is growing. Investment and support for high tech cyber, fintech and service organisations has promoted a growing tech hub in NI.

“However, there is a lack of experienced technical staff to ensure continued growth. We plan to bring the UK and NI market place together and service demand in NI and Republic of Ireland with candidates from mainland UK.

“These are exciting times for the business and we look forward to further expansion and growth in 2018.”

Be-IT currently has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast.
