Aligra celebrates 10 Years in business

By Nick Batten on 9 August, 2017

The Swindon-based recruitment agency, Aligra, celebrates its 10th anniversary this month.

The company, which was founded by Mark Neilson, started off with only three staff but now claims to see a turnover in excess of £6m a year and a client base that includes some of the UK’s “most recognisable” names.

According to Aligra, it has seen year on year “organic growth” and has developed from an industrial and driving sector recruiter to a “multi-sector specialist across a number of unrelated divisions.”

Managing director, Mark Neilson, said: “We started with a blank piece of paper and it took three weeks to get our first customer, things then moved pretty fast and we invoiced over £1m in our first year, which is some going considering the highly competitive industry we work in.”

He added: “As we have good, solid, financial footing, we have ambitious growth plans moving forward to include new locations along with being on the lookout for acquisition opportunities.”

Aligra is a specialist recruitment agency supplying temporary and permanent staff and on-site services to the Logistics, Professional & Executive, Accountancy and Automotive sectors throughout the UK.
