Berry Recruitment Group, which employs more than 200 people, has seen its turnover increase by more than six per cent to a touch under £70m,  latest accounts show. The business recorded a profit of £1.6m before taxes.

It has 35 locations across England and Wales including a Wild Recruitment branch in Portsmouth and a Berry Recruitment branch in Gosport.

Last year it bought Southampton’s CPN Construction and its training centre which will add around £6m in turnover, and London Staff Bureau, which operates in hospitality, office and professional areas, and is expected to add about £1m to turnover.
