Recruitment firm sets sights on Leeds and Newcastle tech scenes

IT recruitment specialist Cathcart Associates has opened a new office in Leeds, further expanding the company’s foothold in the North of England.

The news follows the success of Cathcart’s Manchester office, which is projecting 100% turnover year on year over the next three years, taking revenue to over £4 million by the year 2020. Headcount is expected to double over the same time frame.

Cathcart is keen to develop an active role in the burgeoning technology scene in Leeds, the rest of Yorkshire and the North East.

Sam Wason, Director at Cathcart, says: “The reputation Leeds has as a tech hub is spreading rapidly, and people are flocking to the city to be a part of some of the most innovative and inspiring companies that have sprung up there. Cathcart Associates want to be in the middle of that and we’re excited to be doing our part to foster this growth with the opening of our new office.”

Last year the company, which has offices in Edinburgh, Thailand and Germany, saw its annual turnover reach £6.5 million, continuing a trend of steady growth since its inception 9 years ago.
