Outsource snaps up digital recruitment firm
Swindon-headquartered recruitment company Outsource UK has acquired a Manchester-based digital business in a bid to broaden its offering.
Creativesrus Ltd, which traded as Chrysalis Digital Recruitment, will now be rebranded as Outsource UK and act as its digital division.
All staff will be retained and former Chrysalis owner Chris Crawford will lead the new business.
Paul Jameson, managing director of Outsource UK said: "This is another great strategic acquisition for us.
"The businesses are very complementary and this new digital division will expand our IT expertise and broaden our area of reach."
The deal represents the third acquisition in three years for Outsource.
"It is another important step in expanding the business and strengthening Outsource’s competitive position," Jameson added.
"We plan to continue to grow through strategic acquisitions as well as continuing our period of growth as the economy recovers and the demand for staff increases."
Crawford said: "Chrysalis are specialists in an expanding market so becoming part of a much larger group will allow us to develop and to gain more market share.
"Like Outsource, Chrysalis was built on a foundation of developing relationships with our clients and focusing on investing in our staff in order to provide a first class quality service."
