A recruitment company which began trading in the summer has forecast a bright future after placing 100 people in roles in less than six months.
Blink Recruitment was launched by successful digital services entrepreneur Tracy Hollins and experienced recruiter, Dan Rodziewicz last year.
Tracy founded Blink Digital three years ago and has built a successful business developing websites and providing smart solutions to automise company processes online.
But following a meeting with Dan in 2020, the pair set up Blink Recruitment in July – with both companies now operating out of offices in Queen Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Since the company’s formation it has created four jobs within its own business and expects to bring in further new recruits in 2021.
Blink Recruitment managing director Dan said: “I was looking for a new challenge and Tracy saw the opportunity for us to work together to establish a new recruitment company.
“It has worked perfectly. Blink Recruitment has taken advantage of Tracy and her team’s expertise in creating digital systems and I have brought the recruitment expertise.
“Within 18 weeks of beginning trading, we placed more than 100 people into permanent jobs and now have over 100 candidates at various stages of temporary to permanent contracts.”

He added: “I have also recruited my own team of two recruitment consultants, a compliance manager and a social media manager, and I’m expecting to recruit at least one more consultant in early 2021.
“We’re proud of what we have achieved, particularly during a global economic slowdown where jobs are at a premium.”
The Blink Recruitment jobs are in addition to those at Blink Digital with Tracy progressing from self-employment to a seven-strong team over the last three years.
