Commercial finance consultancy ABL Business has launched a recruitment drive as its joint managing directors chase growth plans and aim to turn over £6m by 2025.
The company, based in West Yorkshire, recently opened regional offices in the North East and South West of England, and aims to open a further 12 locations across the UK in the next three years.
Alex Beardsley, joint managing director, said: “The funding is out there for UK businesses looking to grow, but they and their advisors no longer know where to go to get independent, unaffiliated support to ensure they access the best deal.
“Add to this the fact that commercial lending is going to be more difficult to secure because of the pandemic – plus the lack of ability for businesses to access to bank managers unless they have a turnover of plus £5m or they are a prime customer – means the need for independent commercial finance advice is greater than ever.
“This represents a huge growth opportunity for ABL Business as we are uniquely positioned to help.
“We have a proven business model that works, and we are now actively recruiting for finance consultants, senior finance consultants and regional managing directors to help shape the future of the company.”
In February, the firm announced that former Handelsbanken UK chief operating officer, Andy Copsey, had joined its board as non-executive director to help advise on and deliver its growth plans.
