Glasgow-based startup Jimmy Red Recruitment has merged with Malta-based, market-leading Digital Technology recruitment solution Red Executive.
The merger will provide Red Executive with a bigger presence in the Fintech and Financial Trading sectors, while strengthening its market-leading position in the UK and on the continent.
Winner of S1 Jobs’ Small Recruiter of the Year award in 2015, Jimmy Red Recruitment was noted for providing its clients with access to the top 20% of talent on the market. The small team achieved remarkable results for its loyal client base in 2015, ensuring the company became profitable less than two years after its formation.
Red Executive was formed in 2009, and has long been established as a market leader in Digital Technology. The new, larger Red Executive has boosted its ranks of recruitment professionals by 25% after absorbing the Jimmy Red staff. The company will operate out of a Glasgow office and a Malta office in a move that will provide clients with an unparalleled level of service and expertise.
Red Executive MD and Founder Martin Collins said “In Jimmy Red Recruitment we have found a premium brand company built up through very similar values to our own. I am thrilled with the merger, and it provides Red Executive with an opportunity to expand on our position as market leader. Jimmy Red Recruitment was known for delivering its clients the top 20% of talent available. I am certain that the new, larger Red Executive will provide an unrivalled service across the entire Digital Technology sector - and beyond.’
Jimmy Red Recruitment will immediately be assumed under the Red Executive brand, integrating the Fintech and Financial Trading client base and database into that of Red Executive.
