Clearline Recruitment acquire Pier Recruitment


(November 3rd, 2021) – Clearline Recruitment, founded by Angela Potter would like to announce that they have purchased Pier Recruitment. The purchasing process was completed in July 2021.

Pier Recruitment is a well-established and successful recruitment agency which was established in 2012. Pier Recruitment worked to develop an exceptional relationship with both the candidates and clients. They took interest in their candidate’s career and how they wanted to progress while understanding the personal and professional development and growth each candidate required in their industry.

Additionally, Pier Recruitment took the time to understand their client’s business working environment as well as their mission and values. This in turn allowed them to find the perfect candidate for the perfect role. They were dedicated to helping grow their client’s team. We found that Pier Recruitment’s mission and values align with our own. We decided to purchase Pier Recruitment as we believe it would strengthen our company.

Clearline’s Managing DirectorAngela Potter further discusses the acquisition that has taken place: 

“This deal will see the best qualities of two very successful recruitment firms combined into one powerhouse organisation, and I am honoured to be charged with the responsibility of ensuring that Clearline Recruitment enjoys the full benefit of this acquisition,”

“From my own experiences of being MD at Clearline Recruitment, I know that both these organisations are filled with passionate, dedicated people who will be determined to meet the challenges of a more difficult market head-on”

The acquisition will continue to strengthen our market position with the Sussex area offering expertise in a range of areas that extend from permanent, temporary, and contract placement of high-calibre candidates in the general commercial sector.  

Our strong networks in each of the disciplines ensure we have direct and, in many cases exclusive, access to the best talent in the market. We combine targeted market knowledge, exceptional candidate and client networks, and leading-edge technology to create a collaborative process that is clear, efficient, and ultimately successful with every vacancy we take on.

 We have no immediate plans to change the very successful and tailored blend of both brands that sit within the organisation but will instead be looking at how we can enhance the company’s existing offering with the skills and talents that the acquisition of Pier Recruitment will bring.”
