​NRL’s Recruitment business is celebrating being recognised as one of the UK’s top providers for another year.

The Largest Staffing Firms in the UK report is prepared following extensive research by specialists at Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) to rank the top 50 performing recruitment businesses in the UK each year by stringently evaluating each organisations’ financial performance against their industry peers.

Having initially established its specialist Nuclear recruitment expertise in Cumbria in 1984, NRL has continued to develop niche capability across engineering and technical sectors including Conventional Power, Infrastructure, Renewables, and the Built Environment. Reaching the £10 million turnover point in 1993, and subsequently the £100 million mark in 2013, the Group’s latest 2019 financial return secured a turnover of £186m. Originally operating from one office in Cumbria, the Recruitment operation now has 9 specialist branches – including an international presence in Egypt and more recently in 2020 setting up operations in Ireland.

Discussing the placement NRL’s CEO David Redmayne said,

“We’ve grown our business over the last three decades by moving with our clients. As they’ve grown their service capability so too have we - ensuring we can continue to support them with the right people with the right skills.

To continue to be recognised as a leading UK staffing firm means more to us than just being able to say our Recruitment expertise is one of the best in the country. It means our colleagues really understand our clients and candidates, and the long-term relationships they build help us all remain successful.”

The NRL Group secures position as North West leading business

Following the listing from Staffing Industry Analysts the NRL Group, the Recruitment business' parent company, is also celebrating success. The Group secured a position as a Top 500 North West business in the highly acclaimed North West Business Insider annual listing for another year. First entering the Top 500 listing almost a decade ago, the continued success has only been possible as the Group's businesses continue to grow and develop their client services through the expertise of its people.
