DCS is one of the UK’s most experienced business system providers – delivering Sage and SAP software solutions to SMEs for more than two decades.
The 50-strong company, which has 16 employees based at its office in Hollinwood, has teamed up with Lancashire BIBA Award finalists Fresh Perspective Resourcing to assist them with expanding their workforce – a project that will double the current number of team members in Greater Manchester over the next 18-24 months.
“We are pleased to be in an economic position where we can expand our team based in Oldham and build upon the strong working foundation we already have in place,” said Dominic Ball, Managing Director at DCS, who recently acquired the company along with business partner Richard Stathers.
“To ensure we find the right people for the consultancy and account manager roles we are looking to fill, it was crucial to work with the right recruitment business. I initially became aware of Fresh Perspective through social media and discovered they had experience of working with other companies in our sector; their industry knowledge and positivity really impressed me.”
Fresh Perspective Resourcing, based in Chorley, is run by sisters Laura and Emily Leyland. Together, they are committed to revolutionising recruitment across the North West – saving their clients up to 50 percent by only billing for the time spent searching for ideal candidates, rather than charging traditional placement fees.
“We are thrilled to be working with DCS and excited to start the search for amazing candidates!” said Fresh Founder and Managing Director Laura, aged 34.
“Emily and I are relatively new in business, so it’s exciting to be working with Dominic and Richard, who are also in the process of building a great company which is contributing positively to the Northern Powerhouse by investing in skills and innovation.”
For Dominic, aged 42, and Operations Director Richard, aged 38, the emphasis is on finding candidates who are a cultural fit for DCS – a professional challenge they are more than happy to entrust to Fresh Perspective.
“My experience of traditional recruitment agencies is that it is very transactional,” added Dominic. “What Fresh Perspective offer is something different, something fresh – genuinely living up to their name.
‘Laura and Emily took the time to get to know Richard and I as people, and to understand the ethos of our business. They get it that the people we are looking to recruit need to be a cultural match; it isn’t just about their competency and professional experience.”
DCS are confident that their recruitment drive will be a success in Greater Manchester’s thriving economic region.
“The North West has a great talent pool within our industry, but we’re not the only business looking to recruit from that pool,” explained Dominic. “Working with Fresh Perspective, we want to become the leading name in our catchment area and attract that talent to us.”
