Vibe Recruit merges with Paterson Personnel and expands into South England

Welsh-based recruitment firm Vibe Recruit is marking the new year by expanding into the South of England with the merger and subsequent rebranding of Paterson Personnel.

Both businesses are part of the Personas Group of recruitment companies, and “this represents a dedicated focus of the group to operate under one brand for general recruitment, Vibe Recruit”, a company statement said. In the healthcare sector, the group will continue under the already established brand, Paterson Health and Social Care.

With a presence in South Wales, Vibe will expand the brand with additional offices based in Abingdon, Bicester and Milton Keynes.

With its head office in Cwmbran and other offices in Swansea, Bridgend and Caerphilly, the move will see Vibe able to expand its service offering to clients with a footprint in both Wales and England.

Vibe Recruit acquired Centric Recruitment in 2019 and since then, the company has established itself across South Wales, offering a full range of temporary, contract and permanent recruitment solutions across a variety of sectors.
