Recruitment Group announces a positive 60% client growth since March 2020

Manchester-based Golden Egg Recruitment Group announces its significant growth across its business and staff population. Since the start of the UK lockdown, the Golden Egg Recruitment Group has grown their client base by 60%, while adding to their internal team by 15 people.

Their notable growth has been achieved through pivoting their existing business model to include flexible payment terms, offering funded payroll solutions, and providing bespoke commercial solutions to every client where needed.

“We had to act swiftly to adapt the way we do business, as we knew that the recruitment sector would be hit hard. We had no choice but to create and embrace the necessary business changes when lockdown began” says CEO Benjamin James Kershaw.
“Without using the government furlough scheme, our quick response and ability to adapt our enterprise was in stark comparison to many of our competitors, who scaled down their operations. We have been able to continue to grow by offering flexible recruitment terms to every single new client – which ultimately has led to the Golden Egg Recruitment Group securing new business and placing hundreds of candidates into roles across the UK, keeping people in work and the economy moving”.

Recruitment firm launches new group brand and sets sights on transformational growth

Search, the established provider of multi-discipline recruitment solutions, has embarked on a transformational growth strategy with the market launch of its new Search Recruitment Group brand.

Building on its established foundations and following a period of sustained market growth, Search CEO Richard Vickers – who joined the company from Page Group plc last year – is now leading the forward-thinking executive team into the organisation’s next phase of expansion.

The experienced and entrepreneurial board, comprising of Mark Bailey, founder and CEO of Group business Henderson Scott, and longstanding CFO Stuart Dick, are focused on delivering a trajectory of growth in every discipline of the business.  And they believe the Search Recruitment Group structure provides a platform for creating a house of specialist recruitment brands.

Utilising advances in recruitment technology, and by maximising economies of scale by harnessing knowledge from across the organisation, Search Recruitment Group will deliver specialist services aligned to key market areas.

As part of today’s announcement, the group has also revealed the integration of its existing technology divisions, Search Technology and Henderson Scott, its highly successful 2018 acquisition.

Now operating under the reputable Henderson Scott brand, the integration will create a team of 60+ talented consultants, and will offer comprehensive talent solutions, offering an improved proposition for clients and candidates across technology, cloud, cyber & IT Sales.

Two new state-of-the-art offices will also open in Liverpool and Edinburgh, broadening the Henderson Scott footprint, supporting its continued focus on high growth and emerging markets, expanding further into the UK, as well continuing its success in Europe and the US.

CEO Richard Vickers said: “Within Search Recruitment Group there are many highly talented and experienced people working across a large portfolio of industries and sectors, with best in class knowledge of their markets.

“Through Search Recruitment Group we have a platform to leverage this expertise, and deliver market-leading recruitment solutions to candidates and clients in those sectors we specialise in.

“Our aim is to maximise talent from across the group and empower our teams to really make a difference, harnessing knowledge and skillsets, helping us make a real difference as the market emerges post-Covid.”

Mark Bailey, Group board member and Henderson Scott CEO said:

“Henderson Scott leads the way in the industry and it made sense to consolidate our Search technology brand into this market leading outfit, reflecting the vision of the Search Recruitment Group board to drive growth through our technology specialists.

“Henderson Scott has many long-standing and trusted partnerships with clients, as does Search Technology, so our adoption of an integrated delivery model will provide greater choice and access to expertise, all of which will positively impact our customers and allow us to service more areas of their hiring needs.”

Coinciding with the launch of Search Recruitment Group, the business has also launched its new group website

Crowdfunding for growth to accommodate the future of sustainable travel

Market demands for a focus on more responsible travel are being met by working with local charities and planting trees.

UK company YellowWood Adventures Limited is ideally positioned for the bounce-back in international travel; specialising in small group adventures in remote locations including Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia & Ladakh.

Ahead of the curve in responsible practices, YellowWood partners with local charities to support the communities they travel through, including Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, Food Blessed in Lebanon and 17,000 Ft Foundation in Ladakh, Northern India.

They also plant 15 trees for everyone who takes an international flight to one of their adventures via partner charity

Over half (55%) of global travellers report being more determined to make sustainable travel choices than they were a year ago, but barriers include a lack of knowledge and available or appealing options when trying to put this into practice.” –’s 2019 sustainable travel report

Travellers are seeing how the slowdown of human travel due to the impact of the coronavirus has had an enormous positive effect on the environment, and this is also changing perceptions of how people wish to travel in the future.

YellowWood already has this infrastructure in place, and is currently crowdfunding to expand their team, to be able to provide more clients the type of sustainable, experiential travel they are looking for. They have already reached £38,000 with five weeks still remaining of the campaign.

UK travel magazine Wanderlust received 2,914 responses to their May 2020 travel survey, with the following two very encouraging statistics from their findings: 1) Over 60% of their travellers hope to travel this year & 2) Over 60% of travellers are looking to book their 2021 adventures this year.

The sustainable nature of YellowWood tours themselves; small groups creating a lower negative impact in off the beaten track destinations away from crowds, with local income generation, will be increasingly popular in post-covid tourism.

Reach Food Service delivers dramatic business growth with PODFather

Reach Food Service, the London based premium foodservice operator, has implemented delivery management, route optimisation and electronic proof of delivery technology from PODFather. With the Reach business experiencing a fourfold expansion in order volumes and customer deliveries, the management team needed a software system that was both easy to use and could offer unparalleled functionality, fast. As a result, the Reach team turned to PODFather, the UK’s leading supplier of advanced cloud-based route planning, vehicle tracking and ePOD services.

“At a time of accelerated growth, when we are moving from 250 to 1,500 daily deliveries, we needed a solution that we knew we could trust. That’s why we contacted PODFather,” commented Abbas Lalljee, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Reach Food Service Limited. “We’ve worked with the PODFather team in the past and have found them to be professional and reliable. The system is both advanced, yet easy to use so when we needed a solution PODFather was our only port of call and we were up and running within five working days of signing which is incredible.”

PODFather is now used daily to plan and manage the movement of Reach’s recently expanded vehicle fleet. “With PODFather we’ve made the initial leap of going from 250 deliveries a day to 800 and having the system in place has made the significant jump in volume so much easier to handle,” comments Geoff Charles, Reach’s Transport & Logistics Manager. “With PODFather my team and I can be confident that our deliveries are optimised, our vehicles are tracked, our customers are receiving timely notifications via text and email, and that we, as a transport team are collecting all our proof of delivery notifications with ease.”

The decision to introduce PODFather comes during what is an unprecedented period of challenge and change. “When the UK Government made the decision to shut down cafes, pubs and restaurants to slow the spread of COVID-19 I knew we needed to adapt quickly,” adds Lalljee. “Having a talented and entrepreneurial team, we have swiftly pivoted the business to maintain employment and remain fully operational six days a week, with day and night shifts. PODFather has had a significant role to play in helping us achieve this.”

As part of its change in focus Reach Food Service is involved in two new initiatives. The first, ‘REACH My Kitchen’ will see Reach rolling out a gourmet home delivery service of high-end seafood, meat and poultry boxes. With service now commencing within the M25 region Reach has rapid expansion plans that will see a fast rollout across the UK. In addition the Reach team has partnered up with Côte Brasserie on the new ‘Côte at Home’ initiative that enables people to stock up with chilled bistro meals, created by Côte Brasserie chefs, that are delivered to homes nationwide, ready to cook, chill or freeze.

“These are trying times for us all but the example shown by Reach proves that with drive, determination and entrepreneurial flair you can diversify operations, as shown in this case with the introduction of two new home delivery focused initiatives,” comments Colin McCreadie, Managing Director at PODFather. “We are proud to be helping Reach Food Service and many other food and drinks companies, keeping supply chains moving, and homes stocked, at this most difficult of times.”

PODFather Ltd – so much more than ePOD

Our software is helping businesses within the logistics, construction, field service and healthcare industries to streamline processes, improve operational and financial efficiency, and eradicate paper. Our cloud-based delivery management software encompasses a range of features and functionality including; job management, route planning and optimization, vehicle checks, proof of delivery, driver and vehicle tracking, as well as invoicing and reporting modules. PODFather allows businesses to be better informed about the jobs they are managing, highlighting problems before they occur, making users proactive rather than reactive. Our customer base includes well-known names such as Tarmac, NHS, Bidfresh, Oxfam and Igloo, as well as a many independent logistics and construction service operators. To find out more visit

Subscription Box Business Bathes in Sales Growth

Bathing in sales growth

An online beauty retailer has seen its business grow by a massive 25% over the past few months.

Bathbox is a subscription box company of bath bombs, soaps and salts and has been selling its products since 2017. Every month subscribers receive a different range of products each packaged to reflect the season.

The business was created by Natalie Clarke, who identified that there was a niche in the subscription box industry for a beauty bath product. Each Bathbox includes several well-known products, and this lets customers experience items that would cost them a lot more if they had been purchased from high street retailers.

Natalie normally gathers around 5 % growth each month, but this Easter’s Bathbox sold out in just a few days. This has meant that the business now has several hundred new subscribers.

Bathbox has been featured in Cosmopolitan and reviewed by several YouTube stars, such as Eltoria.

Owner Natalie says: “There are many small businesses, like mine, that have seen a growth in sales since the lockdown was introduced. I already had a business model that provided an alternative product to the major brands and high street retailers.

“Bathbox is an excellent way for my customers to treat themselves or to provide a monthly gift to a friend or relative.

“It’s a very exciting time for small businesses like mine that can still operate from home.”

The UK Subscription Box Boom Report, which was published by the Royal Mail in February 2019, estimated that the subscription box industry would be worth £1bn by 2022. But with the current lockdown set to continue, it is expected that people’s buying habits may change forever, with the industry seeing massive growth well before then.

This could see small businesses, like Natalie’s, develop and extend their products in a way that they would never have envisaged a few months ago.

Notes to Editors:

A Bathbox subscription costs £9.99 (+£2.99 UK Shipping). Subscribers receive a box once a month. Subscriptions can be cancelled at anytime.

Each Bathbox contains five Beauty Bath Items; Bath Salts, Bath Bombs, Soaps & more.

J&M Murdoch drives business growth with PODFather

J&M Murdoch, the transportation, waste management and skip hire specialist, is seeing the benefit of implementing PODFather’s delivery tracking and proof of delivery system into the transportation division of its 70-vehicle strong operation. Murdoch’s vehicles run 24 hours a day, 363 days of the year and the team needed a software solution to automate and streamline several business-critical tasks. PODFather was selected as the supplier of choice for Murdoch’s haulage division and is now relied upon to automate vehicle checks, schedule and communicate job instructions with drivers, track vehicle movements, provide electronic proof of delivery and manage invoicing. As a direct result of implementing PODFather technology, Murdoch’s has seen invoicing turnaround time slashed from seven days to just 24 hours.

PODFather’s delivery tracking and proof of delivery system is used daily to manage a range of tasks across Murdoch’s heavy haulage division. “Technology is a key driver in moving our business forward in terms of service and profitability”, comments Leigh Colville, Account Manager at Murdoch’s. “With PODFather we have streamlined our processes to such an extent that we are now able to organise, issue and monitor jobs much more easily. Ultimately, we can now invoice jobs within 24 hours of completion, with minimal paperwork. It’s so much quicker; the process used to take up to seven days. This has had a huge impact on the financial efficiency of our organisation.

In addition, the PODFather solution is used by the transport team to handle the allocation and sharing of job details with the fleet. “The PODFather system makes it easier for me to do my job, especially as it’s cloud based,” adds John Allan, Operations Manager. “I used to have to physically be onsite to deal with issues, or make schedule changes, but now I can do that anywhere, from any device.”

As a result of introducing the PODFather system to their operation, Murdoch’s now has better visibility of overall fleet performance and revenue generated by its fleet. “We can now see what revenue is being generated by which parts of our fleet. This information is hugely important when making strategic business decisions regarding utilisation,” adds Leigh Colville.

J&M Murdoch has been a familiar site on UK roads since 1965. Still a family-run outfit, Murdoch’s operate a fleet of 70 vehicles, with locations in the West and East of Scotland. With an impressive array of vehicles delivering such a wide variety of items, the Murdoch team prides itself on offering an unparalleled service that treats efficiency as a number one priority.

“Good service sits at the heart of our operation,” comments Drew Murdoch, Managing Director. “Last year saw us recognised by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1,000 companies to inspire Britain. Our staff have always been a USP for our business but in recent years we are seeing technology playing a more important role in both the development of our service offering and the future growth of our company.”

5 Ways to Grow Your Business

Mostly what we want from a business, at the forefront, is innovation. This is a word that associates a company or brand with facets of modernism in different industries. The notion of having a successful business often leads to big scale comparisons, like with Google or Apple. While these are prime examples of how businesses can grow to become dominant empires, they are not realistic to the life of the everyday entrepreneur. So, how can you grow your business? From startups to medium-size enterprises, we notice that there are so many areas where improvements are needed. Scaling any kind of business, whether old or new, for proper growth, is not an easy process and takes a lot of effort. This is why most people tend to give up.

However, for business owners who are dedicated to their craft and want to see their company prosper, growth will be easy to achieve. An example is if you go out of your way to get the best logo design work at printing Condell Park, people will recognize your business everywhere they see it. Interacting with new leads, catering to services and understanding revenue is part of your business day. But, not everyone has the guts to go for it. Why is it that so many people are quick to give up so easily?

Helping the Survival of your Business: Tips to Follow

If your company has any chance of growing in any way, it needs to learn how to survive in the competitive market. The responsibility to make this a reality falls on management and business owners, as well as their skills in setting good goals. The necessity behind the growth is not about just making more money but also making sure that your brand is a household name in its relevant industry. Making the right impression can often fall short, but you can always delve into certain growth strategies. Some types of plans are as follows:

  1. Adopting new processes: You can set higher margins for certain sales or even cut down on some production costs. This is an automated way of ensuring efficient methods and simple utilization of resources.
  2. Delving into a fresh experience: This means that you can increase retention and attempt at making better customer connections. The compulsion to buy your products will add to the customer’s motivation.
  3. Catering to potential leads: Leads can always transform into loyal consumers and thus you have to put them first. This entails that you look at their demands within the market and then deliver accordingly for their satisfaction.
  4. Making sure you have what it takes: Whether you are getting into some features that will impress the audience or simply have a great reputation, it will show people that your company has what it takes to grow and thrive over time.

How Can You Grow Your Business?

Similar to many other concepts of life, you have to put in a genuine effort to grow your brand. There is no rulebook or special sauce or magic spell that can make your troubles go away and give you fast results. You need to take the time out of your schedule to list down all the issues that are apparent and then come up with solutions to fix them. Be mindful that these can be addressed long term and need to establish the foundation of your brand and its products or services. Once you have a clear notion of what needs to be done, the only thing you need is proper implementation.

Besides this, there are many ways you can grow your business by customizing them to your needs and then putting them into action.

Building a Sales Funnel

This is one of the primary ways you can build up your business. Establishing a sales funnel will help you avoid so many huge mistakes. Sales funnels allow you to automate your brand and its procedures, as well as scale more confidently. You will further be able to grow quickly and easily over time without having to use hacks or expensive marketing. After the frontend work is done, all you need to do is put it to use and you are good to go.

Nurturing Existing Customers

If you already have a line of loyal customers, you will have to nurture them and listen to their demands. This involves keeping in constant contact with them in a professional capacity, as well as letting them know about any events or updates that may interest them. This is a means of keeping the customer base you already have and gradually building it up to find a good balance where everyone is satisfied.

Asking for Referrals

It is not a bad idea to attract new customers to your business. After all, customers will be able to drive you forward and give more room for all kinds of business growth. One of the simplest ways you can accomplish this is by asking for referrals from your existing customers. Once they begin to spread the word about your business, there will be a massive increase in people who are interested in what you are selling. Although you need to actively make sure to implement this, it is quite effective.

Maximize Use of Social Media

Not only is social media a powerful tool, but it is also one of the best ways to get exposure. This means that if you are trying to reach a certain number of people then make sure to engage your business on all social platforms. This shows your demographic insights and details about your business, leading to more leads, more curiosity and eventually a great number of sales. Where your audience believes that they are being heard properly, social media is the gateway for modern businesses to flourish.

Building up Brand Reputation

Your brand reputation, or your brand image, is what draws people in when they do not have much information. When you consider how brands build up their name on a global basis, you will note everything good and positive that people are saying about them. From quality products to fantastic service and great pricing, everyone is looking for something when they come across a new name. Therefore, it is up to you to build a reputation for your business that people will love and be enticed by.


Considering that businesses already have to be agile and durable during their processing, it does not hurt to also look at the tips given above. Once you have an idea on how to grow your business, you will be able to push through all challenges and problems with ease and thus become a household name in the market.

Dr. Ed CBD celebrates record-breaking growth in the UK

Dr. Ed®, the flagship brand of The CBD Group, celebrated some of the fastest month-on-month growth for a new CBD brand in the UK. Dr. Ed®, co-founded and headed by friends Dr. Edward Jones and Alex McMillan, has continued to go from strength to strength in the cannabis sector, focussing on science and consumer education in an often-confusing market.

Their launch range of broad-spectrum CBD oils has found great popularity with the British public and led to a market-leading repurchase rate. With close to 10,000 bottles sold since launch, Dr. Ed® is now looking to expand their operation into new territories including Europe and Asia backed by a new round of capital investment and distribution agreements.

As the Marketing Director of The CBD Group, Alex McMillan has always been very aware that brands in the CBD industry must build consumer trust by correctly labelling their products, having them thoroughly tested and being as transparent and honest as possible with enquires.

Alex says ‘The CBD industry has absolutely exploded in the last year. It is the fastest growing area of the health and wellness industry by a country mile and lots of companies are falling flat when it comes to taking responsibility for their products, the way in which they are made and how they are advertised. The CBD space is confusing enough for consumers without companies selling sub-par products to make a quick buck. Luckily there are some really good CBD brands out there who are focussed on consumer education and creating top notch products and we like to think we are included in that list’

Dr. Edward Jones continues, ‘Recent media investigations into high-street CBD brands have highlighted some worrying results whether that be incorrect product labelling or illegal levels of certain regulated compounds within the products. We’ve always taken a science-first approach to our business. Everything we produce is double lab tested for extra peace of mind. We’d hate to let our customers down after spending so much time building up a great rapport with them as a business that really knows it’s stuff when it comes to CBD’.

With the contract manufacturing arm of The CBD Group being launched last month, the group aims to become one of the biggest players in CBD production in the UK, offering a range of services for emerging and established CBD brands.
