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.

Group chairman Tony Berry said: ‘‘The figures are robust in the face of Brexit uncertainty and the challenges it has presented.’
