In an exciting development the latest joint venture to join the Bluestones Group, RAW Recruitment Solutions moves to new premises in Crewe, Cheshire and officially opens its doors for business.

With a specialist team of commercial recruiters, the business will focus on providing both temporary and permanent recruitment solutions to organisations throughout Cheshire and surrounding areas. Collectively, the team have over 20 years of commercial recruitment experience and have well-developed reputations that have been rightly earned over this period.  Fiona Welch, a director at RAW, commented,

The opportunity to launch my own recruitment business after working in the sector for so many years is a genuinely exciting proposition. Having working closely with the local press on recruitment related topics, and provided specialist recruitment services to hundreds of companies across Cheshire over the years, I’m confident that our clients will see the value we can add to their hiring process. As trusted advisers we ensure that we source the right people that are perfectly suited to our clients’ businesses and the roles they’re recruiting for, and advise them on market trends and activities.

RAW, which is an acronym for what the company wants to be known for: Resourceful, Authentic and Well-Advised, is the latest company to join the Bluestones Group.  Trish Stratford, the Professional Services divisional CEO of Bluestones Group also commented on the RAW Recruitment Solutions launch,

Adding RAW Recruitment Solutions into the mix gives us a genuine national network of operators that spans the country from Leeds to Liverpool, and provides clients with access to a talented network of subject matter experts and big company resources, yet niche operator specialists that offer a personalised service we know from experience is truly valued. I’m excited to see what the RAW team can achieve, as their background and experience suggest they’re seen by clients more as business partners than recruitment consultants.

Collectively, the Bluestones Group has over 30 recruitment businesses that operate right across the UK, providing the investment, development and support to talented recruiters that want to run their own recruitment businesses. In 2017, the business helped launch 14 new recruitment businesses and joint ventures and is frequently seen as a low-risk route for start-ups and business entrepreneurs.
