Specialist recruiter Fircroft is to open a new office in Blythe Valley Business Park later this month to serve clients including Bentley and Jaguar Land Rover.

Johnathan Johnson, chief executive at Fircroft, said: “In keeping with Fircroft’s traditions we wanted to be closer to our clients and candidates in order to provide them with the best possible service.

“Opening a new facility at Blythe Valley not only means that we are able to build stronger relationships with our clients at a local level, but it also signifies our commitment to growth within the automotive sector in the region.”

The firm saw an increase in turnover to £550m in the year ending August 31 2011.

Damian Hoskison, automotive business manager, at Fircroft added: “The opening of the Solihull office signifies our intent to become the UK’s leading automotive recruiter.”
