2017 at Amsource Technology!

Thursday 21st December 2017

2017 has been another great year for Amsource Technology, now in our 7th year of operating, this year was a record breaking one in terms of revenue and growth!

Here we take a look back at some of  our 2017 highlights and what 2018 will bring for us…

Manchester office opening
Back in January we opened our second office in another location – Manchester. 

Manchester over recent years has been a key area driving the Digital Northern Powerhouse ideology and has established itself as one of the top 5 tech clusters in the UK, with the second highest GVA growth and has over 50,000 people employed in the digital sector. 
The team in Manchester has grown to four consultants with the out look to double this number by the end of 2018.

Brand new office In Leeds

In March we moved into our new office in Leeds. Having pretty much reached capacity at our former home at Calls Wharf, we have relocated into a bigger office space. Our new premises is part of an exciting redevelopment project, above the iconic Leeds Kirkgate Market called The Leeming Building.

Our new working environment was carefully thought out by our MD and a team of talented interior designers, (and of course with some important input from the team). An emphasis was put on creating a space that we can enjoy working in.

Along with a spacious sales floor, some of the features of our new office include a break out area complete with comfy seating, pool table, fully stocked beer fridge, TV and Play Station.

Shortlisted at the Recruiter Awards
Out of thousands of other impressive recruitment agency entrants, we were shortlisted for the "Recruitment Agency of the Year" - Micro category for businesses up to 10 employees at the Recruiter Awards 2017!

The recruiter awards are regarded as the benchmark within the recruitment industry; it recognises best practice and celebrates great work and achievements of in-house, agency, RPO teams and individuals. For our achievements and hard work over the last couple of years to be acknowledged on this scale was remarkable and one of many reasons for our team to continue pushing on and doing what we're doing!

Tech connect events – great feedback in both Leeds & Manchester
In 2016 we started hosting regular Tech//Connect events. 2017 was a milestone year for our events series which saw us hosting a whopping 12 events. We hosted events on a variety of topics including AI, Microservices and software testing and we were able to collaborate with the likes of Leeds Digital Festival and leading industry names such as BJSS, LightStart Apps and Infinity Works.

2018 will continue the success of 2017 with two events already in the pipeline for January (click here to find out more). We are always interested in hearing from people who want to attend our events or collaborate with us in presenting on a range of industry issues and topics.

Here's what our MD Andrew has to say...
"2017 was a record breaking year here at Amsource.  We doubled our turnover on the previous year to in excess of £3m.  We have increased our headcount by 30% and increased our permanent placement numbers and contract workers significantly.  All our team have contributed significantly and I really appreciate everyones efforts."

What’s next for 2018?
"2018 looks set to be another great year at Amsource.  We’ve already made our first hire joining the team in January 2018 and we will look to increase our headcount significantly.  A key ambition for the business is to scale, and to help this we’ve engaged a Non-Executive Director joining the board to provide support and guidance.   Heres to a bumper 2018"

From everyone here at Amsource Technology Merry Christmas and have a great 2018!
