Outsource UK acquires engineering specialist PA Recruit

IT and engineering recruiter Outsource UK has acquired engineering recruiter PA Recruit.

PA Recruit specialises in providing high-level engineering personnel to the defence and engineering sectors.

In a statement, Outsource said it would be business as usual for PA Recruit’s former owner Peter Ainsworth and his staff, who will remain with the business.

The PA Recruit name, however, will disappear as the business is rebranded as Outsource.

In the same statement, Outsource chief executive Paul Jameson said defence and high-end engineering was a “strategically important business sector” for the company and Outsource will be investing in the business, having already increased headcount.

Wiltshire-headquartered Outsource was ranked 33 in Recruiter’s 2014 Fast 50 league table, which ranks the fastest-growing private recruitment businesses in the UK, the same position it achieved in 2013.

The value of the deal was not disclosed.
