Jobs agency set to recruit under new owners


A Poole-based recruitment agency has been sold after advice from the Southampton office of BTG Corporate Finance.

Capital Public Sector has been purchased for an undisclosed sum by BIL.

The deal will allow Capital Public Sector to further develop its operations particularly in the public sector. Clients include Chelmsford Borough Council, West Berkshire District Council, East Dorset District Council, Stoke on Trent City Council and Burnley Borough Council.

Rosemary Penn-Newman, a partner in BTG Corporate Finance, who acted for BIL, said: “It is business as usual for Capital Public Sector but this should enable it to expand its market as well as its geographic exposure. And that could mean extra recruits.

“This is a good fit for BIL who continue to extend their recruitment services through acquisition.

“It is a new stage in the growth of Capital Public Sector and offers it a bright future.”

Capital Public Sector supplies staff UK-wide to local authorities, concentrating on the revenues and benefits, housing, parking and environmental sectors.

Its aim “is to become the one stop shop recruitment agency for the public sector”.

The firm states: “We have a company policy not to be pushy. From feedback from managers we have found that a lot of agencies out there in the market are too pushy, which is a major dislike. We aim to build long lasting relationships with our clients and candidates.”

BIL believes that this is a business with a great deal of potential and that it can make the most of this strategic purchase. It will be a strong addition to its portfolio.

BIL supplies temporary personnel across driving, commercial, industrial, automotive, IT, technical, accountancy, education, health and social care divisions.
