AN expanding Horwich recruitment firm has appointed a new commercial head.

Earlier this year Four Recruitment, in Mansell Way, confirmed it had secured a £250,000 investment package.

This has been rounded by the installation of Steve Benson, by owners Phil and Claire Sofield, to drive business forward.

Mr Benson said: "I am very much looking forward to what the next few months will bring.

"With a team that’s already grown by 50 per cent in a matter of weeks, and new initiatives already being incredibly well received in the market, it’s exciting times for anyone connected with Four."

Mr Sofield added: "Steve has an excellent track record in developing new products and services and taking them to market."
