Manchester Staff Ltd, founded in 2016 by Dino Georgiou, already provides a high-quality recruitment service to office-based sectors such as sales; marketing; HR; finance; and office support.

We have joint vision of delivering significant growth for Manchester Staff and I look forward to working together with Ian and Alex to achieve our objective. Combining a local brand, dedicated to delivering jobs for the people of Manchester, with the resources and talent available at Buckleigh & Williams, we will possess the means to propel Manchester Staff Ltd to the highest levels of service and efficiency.”
Manchester Staff Ltd has seen steady growth over the last twelve months and has laid strong foundations for future success by developing key relationships with local Manchester businesses. Buckleigh & Williams recognized the potential of the recruitment brand and were able to strike a deal and add the business to their portfolio, providing significant resources and capital.
Ian Buckley, Director of Buckleigh & Williams commented: “We are delighted to have acquired a majority stake in an up-and-coming business like Manchester Staff. We are proud Mancunians and have ambitious plans to re-invest some of the profits back into local community projects. We have a plan in place to fully support this business with the resources it needs to become a local recruitment powerhouse, and contribute to this great city.”
With immediate effect, Manchester Staff Ltd has re-located to the Buckleigh & Williams HQ at Deanway Technology Building 2, Wilmslow Road, Cheshire where it will be primed for rapid expansion with new recruits ready to join the team in September 2018.
Alex Platt, Director of Buckleigh & Williams commented: “Diversifying into new markets is a key growth strategy for us as a business. We feel Manchester Staff Ltd is the right company to invest in and has the potential to achieve our growth targets. To achieve this we will bring specialist recruitment techniques normally utilized in high-end markets such as IT, construction and engineering, to the office support sectors. Our recruitment capabilities here at Buckleigh & Williams are of the highest standard, and we will integrate our processes and technologies to Manchester Staff seamlessly to deliver results.”
