Pure has supported 20,000 people to find their next step on the professional career ladder

Professional recruitment specialists Pure has celebrated the milestone of supporting over 20,000 candidates across the East of England to find their next career role.

The placement of Helen Turner, who has started her new role as Head of Group Reporting at Cambridge University, marked the 20,000th role successfully filled by Pure and we are delighted to have assisted so many people to secure their next step on the professional career ladder.

Pure, which has offices in Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich and Chelmsford, was originally founded in 2002 with the key aim of supporting the region’s businesses at the same time as helping candidates at every step of their career. Today it specialises in Accountancy, Financial Services, IT, Human Resources, Marketing and Office Support recruitment solutions at all levels, including board level appointments through its specialist Executive division.

David Culley, Associate Director at Pure, visited Helen in her new place of work to present her a hamper filled with special treats to celebrate the milestone.

He said: “To have supported 20,000 people to find their next career step, and to have worked in partnership with organisations across the region to find these high-calibre candidates, is a fantastic achievement. Pure is committed to contributing to the growth of our region, as well as making a difference to people’s lives, and this milestone shows just one of the ways in which we achieve this. We wish Helen all the best in her new role and look forward to continuing to support thousands more local people and organisations by providing high quality recruitment and advice.”

Pure has supported Cambridge University with its recruitment needs for more than 10 years and has placed over 30 candidates in positions across the university and its colleges, ranging from HR through to accountancy and financial services roles.

Steve Hutson, Assistant Director of Finance at Cambridge University, said: “We have had a very productive relationship with Pure for a number of years. The main contributor to this is they have taken the time to understand our culture and only put forward candidates with the right profile. Congratulations on reaching such a milestone, we look forward to a continuing fruitful partnership.”

As well as having successfully supported 20,000 professional job seekers since it was founded, Pure has also raised over £129,000 for local charities and it has created several initiatives to help businesses to continue attracting and retaining the best people. These include the Best Employers Eastern Region initiative which celebrates the region’s best employers and assists organisations to create inspiring, innovative and engaging places to work.
