iMultiply, the specialist Finance and Accountancy recruiter, is on track for strong growth in 2018 following a series of client wins in Q1.
Following record revenues of £1.4 million in 2017, the firm founded by Kirsty Mackenzie has plans to grow headcount by around 30 per cent in 2018 to keep apace with increased business wins and opportunities. Edinburgh Airport, iMetafilm and Blackwood Housing Association were among client wins during Q1.
Kirsty Mackenzie, CEO and founder of iMultiply, said: “When I founded iMultiply 6 years ago, from the very beginning I wanted to do things differently as I felt the recruitment industry needed to change. The Customer Satisfaction Survey is quite bold and forward thinking in what is quite a traditional industry and it’s been the bedrock on which the company has been built since.”
In 2017, iMultiply acquired Glasgow-based Allen Accountancy Recruitment and opened an office in Belfast to target the Northern Irish market and as a bridgehead into Dublin. Headquartered in Edinburgh, the existing client base includes online tyre retailer Blackcircles.com and data specialist deltaDNA. In addition to working alongside fast-growth companies, growing revenue streams include the social enterprise sector, interim appointments and the launch of an “Agile FD” service.
Recruitment veteran and Par Equity co-founder Paul Atkinson is an early investor, in iMultiply, while former Chief Executive of Entrepreneurial Exchange, the precursor to Entrepreneurial Scotland, John Anderson was appointed chairman last June and technology sector stalwart George Elliott joined the advisory board last year.
