John Sutton Invests in the Company as a New Shareholder - Director.
John Sutton exited the recruitment industry in 2017 after the sale of his own successful industrial and driving recruitment business, which he built from zero in 2009 to a £10 million-plus turnover business. After four years away from the industry, and after hearing Phil’s vision, who had also been a long-standing friend of his for many years, John decided he missed the industry too much and was excited about the vision for Multistaff. John agreed to invest in the company and joins as a new shareholder - director to work alongside Phil Ellson to help drive and expand the company to reach its full potential. John Sutton comes with over 20 years of recruitment experience within the Industrial and driving sector.

Upgraded Investment into the Entire Front and Back-Office Systems.
After the successful launch of two new divisions and the continued growth of Multistaff, it was decided we must have the very best and most robust systems in place within our front and back-office functions. This included our main CRM to ensure that the quality of service and compliance we currently deliver does not dilute with growth and expansion. After many trials and assessments, a large investment was made into a new system that not only ensures the continued quality of supply but also enables us to offer our clients even further services in the future - designed to not only enhance compliance but also reduce our client’s admin and the time spent dealing with red tape.
Employment Agency Standards (EAS) Compliance Audit Passed in Full.
As Multistaff expanded and its brand became known further across the region for its supply and service, it was common within the industry for a compliance inspection audit to be carried out by the Employment Agency Standards (EAS). This was conducted in August of 2022 and after a 3-day full audit, Multistaff passed its inspection.

The Launch of the Auriga app has enabled clients and workers to have everything at their fingertips via their mobile phones, this includes, but is not limited to, live timesheets, processing and authorisations, attendance tracking, instant messaging, live KPIs, financial reporting and much more.

Sharon joins Multistaff at an exciting time of growth and brings a wealth of experience to its entire back-office function.
Chris Thomas is Appointed as Branch Manager
Multistaff was now supplying both the driving and industrial sector, and it was important that its managers have experience in both areas.
