Established in 2008 by Roz Armitage, 247 Professional Health has grown rapidly and is now a leading north west based recruitment agency specialising in health and social care.
The family run agency employs 15 members of staff including sons Ryan Armitage, Head of Operations and Tom Armitage, Head of Sales and Marketing.
As a Tier 1 supplier of flexible nursing staff for a large number of NHS Foundation Trusts in the north west, 247 Professional Health specialises in the recruitment of all types of nursing staff, support workers and healthcare assistants.
The agency, which has offices in Manchester and Bolton, also supplies many private care homes, nursing homes, learning disability services and private mental health hospitals and services.
Achieving a turnover of approximately £3m last year, 247 Professional Health already has a large bank of agency workers across the region.
Husband and director Les Armitage has 15 years’ experience in setting up and developing franchises and once the original office in Southport had completed its first year of trading, he saw the opportunity to franchise the business.
Currently operating more than 20 franchises across the UK, 247 Professional Health each office is headed by an individual director to provide personal commitment and unrivalled local knowledge.
Roz said: “Since the company was created, we have actively sourced and filled a diverse range of healthcare roles as a result of obtaining an unrivalled bank of fully trained staff. In addition to operating from our head office, there is now a consortium of franchises spanning throughout of the UK to ensure that the same level of talent can be found on a national scale.
