Specialist manpower and recruitment services provider – Newcastle headquartered Samuel Knight International – has announced the growth of its EMEA division which – since breaking into the market – has achieved a turnover double its original forecast and standing at £14.5 million.

The announcement comes on the back of the agency last month predicting a record year with a projected turnover exceeding £25 million for the year 2023/2024.

Speaking about the success of the division, Alison Lowrie, Samuel Knight’s Strategic Business Director for EMEA said: “The team is obviously delighted to have recorded figures of this nature, double what we originally forecast at the start of the year.

“We put this down to a number of factors, most notably, the continued and rapid growth of the energy transition space across Europe, the Middle East and Africa and importantly – as a team working purely in this sector – our ability to understand the drivers within this industry and meet the expectations of those working within it.”

Working for some of the largest energy companies operating across the EMEA regions – and in 2023 securing exclusivity on some of the most high-profile projects operating in this space – Samuel Knight International continues to build its EMEA division, doubling headcount this year.

Speaking about the agency’s continued success, founder and CEO, Steve Rawlingson said: “The success of our EMEA division and the above forecast figures that have come out of there is a testament to the people driving this business unit and their incredible knowledge of the energy sector, all of which has helped contribute to what we predict will be our most successful year to date.”

Samuel Knight International was formed purely to service the renewable energy and sustainable transport industries.  The team running the EMEA division has over 60 years’ combined experience in the energy industry working both in this sector and as recruiters and manpower specialists within it.

Samuel Knight International aims to be 100% owned by its employees and – as its business purpose – champions achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 through the support of community initiatives and programmes that drive green and environmentally friendly initiatives. In 2022 the business turned over £18.5 million and is expected to exceed £25 million in this financial year.
