50% turnover growth and new team members for Manchester recruiter born out of pandemic


Specialist recruitment consultancy Prescient Group is celebrating doubling its turnover in its second year of business and adding new team members to its office at Spinningfields, Quay Street.

The firm, which has further branches in Nottingham and London, was formed during the pandemic in 2020 by seasoned recruiters Joel Fletcher, Charlotte Churm and Ed Robinson.

With a specialism in office professional, Prescient Group has experienced rapid growth since its inception, with turnover growing by over 50% in 2022 compared to 2021. The company is also on track to reach a £1m turnover by the end of this year.

The company has grown to eight recruitment professionals, with the recent appointment of Georgie Leech as Temps Account Manager and Daisy Owen as Permanent Consultant at its Manchester office, and recruitment continues across its three offices, which will take its headcount to 15 by Q4 of 2023.

The expansion of the team and continued demand for its recruitment services - which cover office, supply chain, marketing, finance and HR - has also led to the team taking larger premises in Nottingham.

Director, Ed Robinson, said:

“Our focus when setting up Prescient Group was to set ourselves apart from our competition by utilising our 50 years of combined experience to create a world class end to end recruitment service.

“Looking for the right candidate or role can be extremely difficult, especially during these unprecedented times, which is why we pride ourselves on making a positive impact to our clients and candidates lives with our fantastic team of experts.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Georgie and Daisy to the Prescient Group family. With their positive, driven attitudes and impressive experience, they will both make wonderful additions to the team and we wish them every success in their new roles with us.”

Over its 20-months in business, Prescient Group has built up a portfolio of 65 clients, added executive search to its offer and expanded into the international market.

Ed continued:

“Charlotte, Joel and I love what we do and we’re very proud to reflect on how far we’ve come in the past two years. We’d like to thank our fantastic clients and candidates for being with us on this journey and we look forward to what it to come next for Prescient Group.”
