Blayze Group Manchester On the Move

It hardly seems like a little over a year ago that Blayze Group opened its Manchester office to bring its unique consultative recruitment services to the Property and Construction sector in the North West.

This week the growing team in Manchester decamped to smart new offices at 53 King Street with considerably more space to accommodate Blayze Group's ambitious growth plans in the region over the coming year. Along with increased capacity for specialist recruitment consultants, the new Blayze Group office in Manchester offers a number of stylish and discreet meeting spaces in a variety of configurations. The Blayze Group team in Manchester is looking forward to welcoming existing and new clients and hosting specialist industry events in their new space.

Manchester is at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse and there are exciting developments in Property and Construction across the whole region. The skills shortage in the industry means there has been a great demand for Blayze Group's specialist recruitment services. In a market where there is a shortage of quality talent, sector specialists like Blayze Group can use their experience, market knowledge and unrivalled networks to source, attract and deliver the quality hires that clients need to successfully deliver their commercial and residential development projects.

Even in a highly competitive market, Blayze Group continues to source the Commercial Directors, Planners, Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors and Site Managers that can deliver the wide range of development projects that are in the pipeline for the North West. Having been established in the market since 2002, Blayze Group's expert consultants use their networks combined with the latest technology to source the best talent across the entire talent pool.

In addition to Blayze Group's specialist recruitment services, the Manchester office also provides access to Blayze Group's highly regarded Talent Management Programmes - proven systems for retaining existing talent and dramatically reducing attrition rates.

Harvey Gretton, Blayze Group MD said, "Manchester is at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse and Blayze Group's presence in the North West reflects the importance of the region for Property and Construction - our specialist areas. Our growing team in Manchester has cemented relationships with existing clients in the region and is bringing Blayze Group's exceptional recruitment and talent management services to many new clients in the North West. Moving to larger premises in Manchester allows us to expand our footprint in the region and will provide a springboard for further growth across the North of the country."

Laura Padgett, Associate Director at Blayze Group in Manchester, commented: "With the high level of development activity - both planned and in progress - in the North of the country, there is great demand for the highly skilled Property and Construction professionals that Blayze Group helps clients to source and retain. Rapid growth of the Manchester business meant we needed more space to accommodate the growing team and our ambitious plans for the future. Our new offices at 53 King Street will allow us to continue to grow while providing a comfortable, stylish and discreet meeting place for clients and candidates in the heart of the city."

For Property and Construction professionals in the region, Blayze Group's new office space provides a convenient but discreet location where you can have a confidential chat about your career in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Blayze Group works to create long lasting relationships that satisfy client’s commercial requirements AND candidates long term career ambitions. 

Blayze Group has a track record of successful senior placements in all sectors of Property and Construction that work well for both client and candidate. At Blayze Group, recruitment isn’t just about understanding qualifications, skills and experience - it is also about understanding people, their personalities, what drives them and which organisations will provide the cultural fit in which they will thrive.

So if you are a Property or Construction professional in the North West (or thinking about a move north), why not stop by the new Manchester office for a coffee and a chat with one of our expert consultants?
