Samuel Knight International is celebrating four years of successful growth during which time over 40 new jobs have been created. The company has supported some of the world’s most exciting engineering projects in over 30 countries and placed over 1,000 engineers globally. The firm is now enjoying a turnover of £16 million.
Since its launch in 2014, the company has specialised in the global energy and rail sectors and has increased net profit from £125,000 to £1.3 million. With continued success the firm is looking to expand further as part of its growth strategy.
“As we have gone from strength to strength, there can be no doubt that our success is a result of the incredible talent we have hired,” said Samuel Knight CEO Steve Rawlingson. “Over the past year we have significantly invested in growing the team and creating a culture that people want to be a part of. Our ethos when it comes to talent is to focus less on individual backgrounds or previous experience, and instead on identifying people with the right work ethic and attitude.
“As we recruit new talent, we are also very committed to nurturing existing staff,” he continues. “We are hugely proud of the team we have built and our approach of potential over background. We recruited a consultant in our early days with no prior recruitment experience who is now an associate director which shows determination, hard work and the right training really does pay off. While we continue to strive to offer our clients and candidates the best-in-class service, to do this, we need to have the right people on board. I look forward to welcoming new talent to join us on the journey to success.”
