Demand for purchasers has played a key role in UK recruitment firm Morgan Law posting record growth.

The public sector recruitment specialists' annual results revealed that its turnover rose 50 per cent to almost £37 million in the past year, while net fee income increased by 30 per cent.

Morgan Law said its procurement division performed particularly well, placing more than 100 buyers in permanent and interim roles in the past year. These included the head of procurement at Kingston University and the CPO of the Pensions Regulator.

Gareth Elwin, head of the purchasing division at Morgan Law, told SM the company had enjoyed a high level of repeat business, despite difficult economic conditions.

"We are seeing greater demand for commercial people and increased demand for permanent staff. It is recognised that the public sector needs to cut costs and permanent staff can help it do that," he said.
