Times two is the winning equation for Belfast-based recruitment consultancy iMultiply as the company marks its second anniversary in Northern Ireland and the announcement of a new Strategic Advisory Board, with the hiring of three new staff.
iMultiply currently boasts a team of 20 based across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast, with the focus being on growing that number significantly. Belfast is seen as key to this growth strategy with three new hires planned over the next six months.
The finance recruitment firm is also celebrating 50 per cent growth in its local customer base and its revenue in the last 12 months alone.
The hiring of the new Strategic Advisory Board which includes prominent business leaders, Judith Totten MBE, Paul Campbell and Cara Macklin, will provide iMultiply with an insightful on-the-ground perspective and expertise which reflects the burgeoning business’ outstanding success and expansion plans for continued growth.
The award-winning consultancy’s new strategic board members bring impressive experience, contacts and inspiration that will greatly benefit the Northern Ireland operation, and the companies that partner with iMultiply for both permanent and interim finance recruitment solutions.
Judith Totten MBE enjoyed a successful career in banking, principally with Danske Bank, and went on to found Upstream, an independent provider of working capital funding for Northern Ireland SMEs. She is a Non-Executive Board Member of Invest NI and is recognised as a provider of finance solutions for business and a respected financial commentator.
Paul Campbell is a multi-disciplined Director and Chairman with a proven track record over the last three decades of establishing and growing successful businesses. He is Non-Executive Chair at Electronic & Security Services Ltd, Chair of the Growth and Scaling Board at Catalyst, and a long-standing business mentor to the start-up community in Northern Ireland.
An entrepreneur and professional coach, Cara Macklin uses both her business experience and leadership coaching to help successful leaders achieve greater results developing themselves and their business. Cara was previously a Director of the award-winning Macklin Healthcare group and Malone Lodge Hotel, which has grown to become a multi-million pound organisation with 600 employees across seven businesses.
iMultiply Director, Billy McCarthy said: “I am beyond delighted with our double celebration – two hugely successful years of trading and the welcoming of such an exciting strategic board – who bring a fresh, new challenge and impetus to our expanding team.
“The time is right for iMultiply to build on its foundation of success. We are now fully established in the Northern Ireland business community, which we feel is reflected by our ability to attract strategic advisors of the calibre of Judith, Paul and Cara.
“We want our objectives and thinking to be continually challenged as we grow the business and consider new ventures – establishing an advisory board of entrepreneurs who have built and led their own successful enterprises represents a pivotal moment in our journey.”
