£500m turnover recruitment group rebrands as Sanderson

Resource Solutions Group (RSG) is celebrating passing the £500m turnover mark this year by announcing the rebrand of its four core companies. The privately-owned group, which includes Sanderson, Resource Management, FirstPerson Executive and Intelligent Consulting, will be known as Sanderson.

With its head office in Bristol, the group has expanded significantly over the last decade, opening 10 new offices including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, London, Reading, Southampton, Cardiff, Cheltenham and Dublin.

The rebrand, delivered by Edinburgh-based brand agency Studio LR, will see all four companies come together as a 300 strong team under a brand identity which represents their shared ethos and ability to offer the best recruitment solutions from across the group.This will include all of the company’s current core services being brought under the new Sanderson brand.

Jon Ball, Sanderson’s Managing Director who started working for the company as a trainee recruitment consultant 23 years ago, commented: “Sanderson has grown steadily since the company was founded in 1982, but in the last 10 years we have enjoyed accelerated growth – so much so we’re now a half billion-pound business.”

This organic growth into a UK-wide network of expert recruitment businesses, in addition to the acquisition of Sopra-Steria’s UK recruitment business in June 2019 (since rebranded to Intelligent Resource), has seen turnover increase more than fivefold from £100m in 2008 to £500m in 2019. In October, RSG also expanded its international reach with iKas International, a recruitment business based across the UK and Asia, with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney.
