Two newly merged Worcester recruitment firms have held a drinks reception to mark a deal which will see them providing more specialist staff to firms across the county.

Workforce Recruitment, which has nine branches across the region, announced the merger with fellow Worcester business Peach Recruitment in July with Peach’s staff moving from their Pierpoint Street branch into Workforce’s Foregate Street recruitment centre.
The event, held at Boleros Bar & Kitchen, saw over 40 guests from the local business community treated to drinks and a tapas-style buffet which followed short speeches by Workforce CEO Paul Alekna and Sarah Mayo-Evans, founder of Peach Recruitment.
Paul Alekna, said: “The merger with Peach Recruitment has been extremely smooth and the drinks reception was another opportunity for us to thank the staff and celebrate the future.”
Sarah Mayo-Evans added: “It was important for us to thank staff and a variety of businesses from across Worcestershire for their ongoing support following our merger. We are going from strength to strength as part of the Workforce team.”
Peach Recruitment was founded in 2002 and went on to become a respected jobs specialist providing non-medical and non-clinical staff for the NHS, alongside filling roles in the public and professional service sectors.
Headquartered in Redditch, Workforce has recruitment centres in Worcester, Kidderminster, Rugby, Northampton, Coventry, Solihull, Birmingham and at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
In 2015 Workforce, which was formed in 2003 by Mr Alekna and brother Joe, was voted as one of the UK’s top 100 businesses to work for in the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies survey.
They specialise in supplying staff for sectors including logistics, transport, professional services, office, food manufacturing and manufacturing.
