Leading supply chain management recruitment firm, Strive, hasannounced its commitment to Stockport and Orbit Development’sBeckwith House and made it the base for a new sister company.

Initially tempted to look for separate offices in Manchestercity centre, Strive’s Managing Partner Javed Ashraf has opted toexpand his existing premises in Stockport.

The new venture, called Reactive Recruit, will extend theexisting business model into sales/call centre, HR, finance,IT/e-com, engineering & secretarial. In what Javed describes asa natural progression the move will enable the company to offer awider service to established and new clients without diluting thehugely successful Strive brand.

The firm is currently looking to add to its team at BeckwithHouse to support the expansion and hopes to recruit locally.

Javed said: “Beckwith House and Stockport town centre has beenour home for three years and we are committed to being part of itsexciting plans. When I looked at options in Manchester I took intoconsideration cost, commute time and energy of the environment andfound that Stockport compared very favourably.

“I think there is a buzz around the town with a great deal ofpotential in all areas.”

“Likewise Orbit have been exceptional, not only as a provider ofgood quality premises, but in its commitment to being genuinely’hands on’ in the local business community. That too was acontributing factor.”

Strive has consistently raised the bar in the recruitment sectorand boasts an enviable client list of household names and acommitted team of employees who specialise in becoming resourcefuland caring recruiting partners to their clients.

Javed Ashraf again: “Our supply chain clients are already usingour new service and we will be looking to launch Reactive Recruitinto new markets with serious intent in the next few months.”

Orbit Developments is Stockport’s largest landlord with 12buildings in the town centre, including Beckwith House.

Tony Jones, Managing Director of Orbit Developments, said thatanticipation of future improvements in and around the town centrehad a played a major part in Strive’s decision.

“It is what we campaign for constantly. A vibrant town centrewith an ambitious future will retain dynamic and successfulbusinesses like Strive and its new sister business.”

“We are delighted to hear that Javed is so committed to the townand the building and we wish him every success with the newventure.”
