Three senior promotions at Cathcart Associates will help to support the IT recruitment firm’s continued expansion
Cathcart Associates has announced three senior promotions within its Scotland and North of England divisions following its Manchester office expansion and creation of a dedicated graduate training programme.
Stuart Manderson has been promoted to Sales Manager, while Murray Simpson has been made Scotland Team Leader and Liam Wilson Senior Consultant for the North of England.
Manderson, who was the first employee to bill more than £1 million for the company, will be responsible for setting consultant targets, recruiting and developing new trainees, and carrying out reviews of all UK-based IT staff.
Simpson, who has been with the firm for more than four years, will specialise in sourcing and placing senior IT professionals while leading the team of recruiters in Scotland.
Wilson will be responsible for high-level business development for major clients in the North of England and will continue to be Cathcart’s specialist in the fields of business intelligence, data science and artificial intelligence. He started the north of England team single-handedly and has so far grown it to seven consultants.
Gordon Kaye, founder and Director at Cathcart Associates, said: “Scotland and Manchester are hotbeds for growth and development in the tech industry right now and we are seeing this reflected directly in demand for our services.
“Cathcart specialises in recruitment for IT businesses and customer service is at the forefront of who we are. We are very pleased to announce the promotion of three members of our team who have delivered outstanding results in terms of the service we offer our clients and candidates and who have the skills and commitment to support the growth of the business.”
Cathcart was founded in 2009 in Edinburgh by Gordon Kaye and Sam Wason, and opened its Manchester and Bangkok offices two years ago. The company projects 100% increase in turnover year on year over the next three years in its Manchester division, taking revenue in its Manchester office to over £4 million by 2020. Headcount is expected to double over the same time frame.
