FORMER Worcester Warrior turned entrepreneur Nick Baxter is celebrating after his city recruitment firm was able to purchase its first ever commercial property.
Founded in 2017, Baxter Williams has developed a strong reputation regionally for its recruitment services and expertise across the property, construction, commercial and executive-level sectors.
Thanks to a mortgage from HSBC, the firm has been able to purchase the 3,000 sq ft property it had previously leased which will provide the business with the stability to grow and expand into other areas of the country including Birmingham, where Nick grew up.
The business prides itself on developing a team of homegrown talent and, after creating four new jobs during the pandemic, will continue to recruit locally as it continues to expand.
Nick Baxter, founder and CEO at Baxter Williams, said: “From day one, we have been committed to developing meaningful and long-lasting relationships with our clients.
“Our ethos, together with an amazing and vibrant team culture, has spearheaded our growth across a diverse spread of sectors in the recruitment industry.
Ian Coulson, HSBC UK area director for West Midlands Business Banking, said: “HSBC UK was pleased to support Baxter Williams as they continue to experience growth even in a challenging and uncertain marketplace.
“The new commercial property in Worcester is the first step for the business as it looks to develop its physical footprint across the country.”
