Bristol-based RSG, the UK’s biggest independent recruitment group, has launched a new brand to target the IT and change management sectors.
Led by head of recruitment Richard Taylor, pictured, from RSG’s Bristol headquarters, it has ambitions to organically grow a client base of contacts who require specialist IT and change management expertise.
Richard said: “There are so many crossovers between IT and change management that it just made perfect sense to launch a UK-wide business which understood those sectors.
“I’ve spent my career building real relationships. Some of my clients were once my candidates! I’m fascinated by the sector and driven by the need to treat everyone involved fairly.”
Fuse Recruitment will be trading as part of the RSG (Resource Solutions Group), joining its other recruitment brands including Sanderson and Resource Management.
Richard added: “With change management it’s only going to get harder to source the right people. It is important in complex situations to have a resourcing function which specialises uniquely in the sector.
“We can provide the in-depth industry knowledge necessary to successfully place the right people. The possibilities for bringing real value to the market are there for the right recruiters.”
RSG managing director Jon Ball added: “Richard made a very convincing case for the need for a specialist brand in the IT and change management recruitment arenas – but also for his role in making that happen.
“It’s a very exciting time for everyone involved, and we’re thrilled with the start it’s had.”
RSG, which last year reached a turnover of £250m for the first time, was founded in Bristol in 1975. It has grown from a single recruitment company into a multi-million pound network of expert recruitment businesses.
Still led by founder Keith Dawe along with CEO Mike Beesley, it provides a range of individually tailored and professional recruitment services to multi-nationals, household names and small and medium-sized businesses.
