Logistics recruitment company Bluestones Logistics has surged into the top 15 automotive recruitment companies in the UK according to Recruitment International. The company, which is part of the ever expanding Bluestones Group has seen its turnover increase from £1.2m to £3.6m in the previous 12 months.

Bluestones Logistics supplies both permanent and temporary recruitment solutions to the logistics industry, including everything from transport clerks to distribution directors and LGV and HGV drivers. It works with a range of household names throughout the country as well as SMEs and family operated business.

The company’s growth can be attributed to several offices opening around the country, including Derby, Newcastle and Glasgow. It has also recently opened a retail division in the North East. Managing Director, Marian Butterworth said:

We have experienced tremendous growth in the last 12 months. Part of this has been successful launches of new offices around the country but we have also solidified relationships with major clients too. We’re extremely pleased to have made it into the top 15 and next year we are aiming finish even higher up the table.

Marian is predicting that next year the company will enter the top ten with a turnover of £7m. She continued, “We’re already seeing a successful final quarter of 2016, the lead up to Christmas has been busier than ever this year so we have been filling more driving jobs. We’re hoping in 2017 to win new contracts and will be tendering for some of the major companies in the sector.”
