Newton-Le-Willows based executive Search firm, Mercury Hampton Ltd, has become the most recent business to join the Government’s Northern Powerhouse Partnership Program.

The Northern Powerhouse has set out with the ambition to bring together the great cities, towns and regions of the north to become a powerhouse for our economy. In order to make this a reality relationship must be forged with local businesses, institutions and organisations who are passionate about the North.

Established in November 2017, Mercury Hampton deals solely in high end and, executive level recruitment, re-structuring and hiring for companies across the globe. Their primary focus is on placing Sales, Marketing, Operations and Engineering professionals throughout Technology, Manufacturing and Business service sectors.

Committed to investing in the region, they are well positioned to promote the NPH through their increasingly wide UK and Global recruitment projects.

Chris Hickey, Managing Director said: “We are excited to become official members of the Northern Powerhouse, we believe that a collective effort from businesses can help to shape the North as a better place to live and work. Our growth plans support this ethos and enable us to provide employment opportunities to local people within Mercury Hampton and also through our core activities as a recruitment company and the promotion of northern based employers to candidates globally.”

Since incorporation the company has seen impressive growth, from two Directors to a team of 10 people. Over the coming years Mercury Hampton plan to invest heavily in growth, namely their apprenticeship scheme and increasing trading with local clients and suppliers. Developing young talent and investing in innovation will undoubtably be key for their plans to becoming reality.

Minister for the Northern Powerhouse, Jake Berry, MP,  said:

“It’s great to welcome Mercury Hampton Ltd as the newest member of the Northern Powerhouse Partner Programme. Our partners represent an ever growing network of businesses who share our vision for the Northern Powerhouse and continue to work together to help the North reach its full economic potential.

“I’m excited to see the contribution Mercury Hampton Ltd will make as they support businesses to recruit the best talent in the Technology, Manufacturing and Business Service sectors and provide apprenticeship opportunities for young people in the Northern Powerhouse.”
