Increasing from £201,213 in 2014 to £805,436 in 2015, the company attributed the success to the investments it had been making in recruitment.

Meanwhile, the agency also recorded a rise in turnover, from £29.2m in 2014 to £34.1m in 2015. Operating profit increased from £197,105 to £345,708, while gross profit grew slightly from £2.7m to £2.9m.
