We are immensely proud to partner with Soho Square. In 20 years, we have achieved an international presence with a globally recognised brand. While the operational structure of the business will remain the same, this investment will allow us to achieve our ambitious growth plans of trebling the size of the business over the next 5 years and will enable us to accelerate our professionalisation at scale, increase our service lines, and take our high-quality services to wider markets and geographies. It is a very exciting time for the business, and we look forward to expanding our offering to businesses and job seekers across the world.Oliver Castle, Co-CEO at Oliver James.
With a turnover of £220 million, Oliver James is growing at an impressive above-market rate and is a very successful business led by an ambitious and experienced team. We were particularly attracted to their bespoke supporting systems and operations that were developed in-house and put in place to enable the firm’s rapid growth and development of their deep sector knowledge within focused verticals. We are excited to be backing and working with this forward-thinking team and to be investing in a high growth and resilient business that continues to grow market share. Our investment in Oliver James, which sits senior in the capital structure, is typical of the type of investment that Soho Square is pursuing in the UK and northern European markets.David Steel, Director at Soho Square.
