Thanet recruitment firms finalise merger

The full team following the Artemis and Recruitment People merger

Two Thanet recruitment companies have finalised a merger.

Artemis Recruitment Consultants Ltd and Recruitment People Ltd merged effective from April 2.

The joint company venture, which will be led by Samantha Bambridge of Artemis Recruitment and Gemma and Matthew Bevan of Recruitment People, combines the permanent staffing solutions that Artemis has to offer with the temporary staffing placements from Recruitment People Ltd.

A company statement says: “Our Margate-based companies have come to the conclusion that we will be stronger as a joint venture, being able to focus on specific sectors ensuring our customer service is second to none.”

Artemis has been established for some two-and-a-half years and covers numerous sectors from legal to construction.

Recruitment People launched year from a base at the Marlowe Innovation Centre in Ramsgate.

Samantha said: “Merging the companies mean our combined expertise and extra resources enable us to do a better job for our clients. There’s seven of us now, which gives us more reach.”

“All of us, with the exception of Carol, have years of experience as recruiters. Carol learnt with us and also has a background in sales and account management. We are now covering more industry sectors as we are able to specialise.”

Artemis is based at 17-18 The Parade, Margate.
