Stamford recruitment firm MorePeople is looking to realise its full potential with a dynamic team in new colourful offices
A specialist recruitment firm that has huge ambitions is looking for dynamic people to help it grow.
Stamford-based MorePeople has recently moved into a colourful and lively new home in Cherryholt Road. At their previous base in Belton Street, Stamford, the company’s desire to grow was limited not by ambition, but by room.
Now, in Cherryholt House, there is space to grow the team and develop new ideas.
MorePeople has 23 employees but wants to double that in the next three years and has opportunities for Stamford-based graduates or those looking for a new challenge.
The move represents an exciting time for MorePeople, as Chief Executive Officer Andrew Fitzmaurice explained.
“There are lots of careers in recruitment but not as many in as strong a position as we are to create opportunities for people where they can make a difference, earn good money, unlock their potential, and have fun at the same time.
“We have been ready to grow our business for some time but the missing piece of the puzzle has been the physical space to do it. Now we have that here.”
Traditionally seen as specialising in fresh produce and commercial horticulture, that in fact only represents about half of MorePeople’s work - the other half of clients coming from across the food supply chain and rural affairs.
At the helm of the business are executive chairman Guy Moreton - who founded the firm 22 years ago with Peter Hunt - alongside Managing Director Richard Hanwell and Andrew.
They have invested heavily in the impressive new open plan office, which gives the team the chance to interact in a unique and innovative space. The decor reflects the company’s links to agriculture, with plants adorning the desks and artificial grass featuring in a break-out space where team meetings are held, and staff can relax with a cool drink from the fridge.
“Creating a workspace and environment where the team can really express themselves was very important to us and our growth,” explains Richard.
“What we have now, we believe, can enable us to attract, retain and improve our team and bring to life our business plan.”
If they’re feeling competitive, staff can take on their colleagues at a game of table tennis but, back at their desks, a team atmosphere is promoted with new ideas shared across the room and everyone joining in with a round of applause when someone seals a deal.
Team members work hard, whether finding clients from across the food production chain or matching the correct candidates into middle management roles across the UK, but working hard leads to rewards at MorePeople.
Each week, the peer-nominated ‘Player Of The Week’ spins a wheel to select their prize from a host of Stamford-based businesses, and team days out have included trips to Rutland Water’s AquaPark and monthly high performer lunches across Stamford and surrounding villages.
It doesn’t stop there. As well as the potential to earn salaries most graduates could only dream of, hitting targets can lead to the chance to dine at The Ivy and Duck and Waffle in London as staff did last year.
Those joining the team are supported just by their colleagues but an in-house academy training programme.
Andrew says: “We have worked hard to create an environment that is motivational, and that people want to work in in the heart of Stamford, and we want the very best people to join us.”
