Distinct doubles up in Nottingham

One of the fastest growing recruitment firms in the East Midlands is expanding again.

Distinct Recruitment, based in West Bridgford, Nottingham, has doubled the size of its office in the Landmark Building in the popular Nottingham suburb after moving into an 800 sq ft suite.

However, even that may not be able to accommodate the firm for long, as CEO James Calder explains.

He said: “We’ve grown very quickly, but that’s because we’ve got some fantastic staff who are all prepared to put the hard work and hours in to ensure the business gets off to the best possible start.

“Their hard work has meant we’ve doubled our office space in our first year of trading, which is a remarkable achievement. But we’re not about to stop there – we want to keep growing the business – and our headcount in 2017. In fact, we hope to announce a few more senior hires in the coming weeks”.

Distinct was established in January 2016 by James Calder and Arran Jaiswal, but has already grown to 16 staff members.

Calder, along with colleague and director Jaiswal, invested £250,000 into Distinct, which specialises in accountancy and finance, human resources, procurement and supply chain, office support and sales and marketing.

Calder and Jaiswal also have the backing of former Nottingham Forest and Spurs footballer and current Hull City captain Michael Dawson as non-executive director and experienced recruitment specialist Paul Macildowie as chairman.

Calder added: “These are exciting times, we will continue to grow our employee numbers to accommodate our market demand, whether the office can accommodate us much longer is another matter – I might have to put a desk on the roof at this rate!”
