Swift Temps on trail of fresh growth from new Redditch headquarters, secured with the aid of John Truslove

A new headquarters in Redditch is providing the platform for a major programme of growth for recruitment firm Swift Temps.

Managing director Damian Lee worked with commercial property agents John Truslove to secure more than 2,000 sq ft of office space at Brooklands on the Moons Moat industrial estate – giving it four times the amount of space of its previous base.

Additional staff have been recruited including an expanded permanent recruitment team and a new legal recruitment team as Swift Temps has grown to nine branches across the Midlands and the North.

It is also moving its Oldbury team into a bigger new Birmingham office and has just opened a new branch in  Yorkshire in addition to sites in Preston, Telford, Deeside, St Helens and a bigger new office in Manchester.

Mr Lee, who used his family home in Redditch as security when he set up Swift Temps in 2016, said: “There is tremendous growth at the moment. Companies are all competing to find the best new staff, while people are seizing the opportunity to secure better jobs and advance their careers.

“We have industrial, manufacturing, logistics, commercial and administrative services clients as well as one of the country’s biggest supermarket chains. We are placing thousands of people every year into both temporary and permanent roles, and we have launched a new service recruiting for the legal sector.

“One of our biggest selling points is that we save companies huge amounts of time in terms of recruitment. We deal with all the applicants, so the companies only need to interview the best candidates; we sort the wheat from the chaff.

“It was clear we needed a much bigger headquarters to service that growth and found Unit 4 at Brooklands. It was ideal and we are already filling it up. Ben Truslove, at John Truslove, was excellent throughout the negotiations with the landlord. He worked with real speed, enabling us to move in as quickly as possible. It was a flawless experience.”

Ben Truslove, joint managing director at commercial property agents John Truslove, helped Swift Temps secure a five-year lease with landlord Alliance Global Logistics on 2,391 sq ft of ground floor office space at 4 Brooklands.

He said: “Swift Temps has undergone major growth and needed a bigger new headquarters in a hurry. I am delighted we have been able to expedite matters, providing this company with an excellent platform for the next phase of its development.

“I hope we will be able to continue assisting them in the future.”

Lawyers from Irwin Mitchell solicitors acted for Swift Temps in the lease negotiations.

Grade II-listed barn conversion near Stratford-upon-Avon for sale at £775,000

An historic barn converted into a four-bedroomed residence in Warwickshire has come onto the market with DM & Co. Homes for offers in excess of £775,000.

The Grade II-listed property known as Wealden House on the Banbury Road, near Stratford-upon-Avon, dates back approximately 300 years and was converted in 1997.

Lisa Smith, sales director at DM & Co. Homes, explained that the barn is part of an exclusive courtyard of eight properties within the estate of Croft Farm.

Ms Smith said: “Wealden House is a unique Grade II-listed home in a stunning rural location, and just a short drive from the highly desirable medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

“The property has exposed beams throughout its spacious rooms, while outside is a detached double garage and a garden with incredible views.

“The impressive reception hall has a double-height ceiling and stairs leading to the galleried landing.

“The hall is flooded with natural light and is currently used as a further sitting room, but could also be used as a dining area.

“It enjoys floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden, with a door providing direct access to the garden and a useful cloaks cupboard.

“Leading off the hallway to the left is the stunning large lounge and dining room with an abundance of character, the brick fireplace and log burner being the focal point for the seating area.

“The dining area has plenty of space for a large table, and oak flooring runs throughout into the study and hall, with a step leading down to the study, perfect for home working, or as a playroom.

“To the right of the hallway is the breakfast kitchen with direct access to the garden, and a door leading to the utility area and rear lobby.

“The rear lobby leads to the downstairs bathroom and rear staircase to a double bedroom with a high-beamed ceiling and Velux windows, perfect for a teenager or family member seeking privacy.

“The main gallery landing has great views over the hallway and out to the garden and provides access to the remaining bedrooms and useful storage cupboard.

“All three first floor bedrooms feature exposed beams, the principal benefiting from an ensuite, and there is also a family bathroom.”

Wealden House is accessed off the Banbury Road, with a gravel driveway leading to the Croft Farm courtyard development.

There is parking directly outside the barn for two vehicles, and two further additional spaces are provided in front of the double garage.

The garage has stairs to a loft space perfect for storage, or it could easily be converted to a hobbies room subject to planning permission.

Ms Smith added: “The large mature rear garden has exceptional open countryside views, and the patio provides the perfect setting for alfresco entertaining, with spectacular views and tranquillity on offer.

“There is a large lawned area easy to maintain with mature borders and a useful shed, plus a rear gate to the shared driveway providing easy access to the garage.

“One further highlight is that the property lies within the catchment areas of well sought-after schools in Stratford, including the outstanding King Edwards VI, Stratford Girls and Alcester Grammar Schools.”

High praise for Principle from new client on idyllic river island location in Cambridgeshire

Directors of a premium collection of 146 homes on an unusual river island setting in Cambridgeshire have praised Principle Estate Management for its swift start in looking after its properties.

The development is a private estate of leasehold and freehold properties based within a protection zone at Skipper Way on The Island, sitting on the Great River Ouse that runs through St Neots.

Joe Jobson, joint managing director at Principle, explained that Principle had been initially appointed to start as the new management agent for the client this January, with a handover period from November 2022.

But because of difficulties with the previous management agency, Principle was asked if the handover could take place sooner, which was quickly agreed.

Alison Gledhill, chair of The Island (St Neots) Management Company Ltd, said: “The service we have received from Jason King, the senior property manager at Principle, and his team since 1 November  has been fantastic.

“Despite only just starting with Principle himself, Jason has provided professional advice, clarity and calmness to a really challenging situation.

“He has communicated well with the board, handled challenges to enable an appropriate handover from the previous agency brilliantly, and despite all the issues has managed to quickly deliver urgent pieces of work.

“We feel that with Jason and his colleague James Lucas now working with us we will soon have an evidenced and appropriate plan for the short and medium term, and the work will be delivered to our expected standards of quality and safety.

“The subcontractors used to date appear to be excellent, and the board has no doubt that over time a consistent standard of contractor will be procured by Principle based on our mutual expectations regarding process and health and safety.”

Ms Gledhill added: “We are midway through what was supposed to be the first month of engagement, and I speak for the whole board when I say that Jason and his team have already provided the reassurance and professionalism we hoped for in our decision to move agencies.”

The St Neots development includes common areas and landscaped grounds that are bordered by two riverbanks and ten blocks of leasehold flats, made up with 85 leasehold and 61 freehold properties.

Mr Jobson of Principle said: “We’re always pleased to hear from clients on how Principle is performing, and we are especially delighted with this feedback from a new customer where we had to tackle some challenges early on.

“We are very proud to be the new managing agents of The Island, and this development is already fitting well into perfectly into our expanding portfolio.”

Principle looks after nearly 10,000 property units in more than 300 developments across the UK with offices in Birmingham and London.

Prime commercial property overlooking Birmingham cathedral bought for £1.425 million

A private investment company has bought an impressive building overlooking St Philip’s Square in Birmingham city centre for £1.425 million, thanks to commercial property agency Bond Wolfe.

Bond Wolfe acted for Swali Investments & Holdings Ltd in their purchase of Portman House at 5-7 Temple Row West, which extends to an approximate total space of 6,200 sq ft.

The building is currently bringing in rents totalling £59,000 per annum from Middle Eastern café Damascena on the ground floor, and the Baron Davenport’s Charity for local hospices, young people and women in need on the first floor.

Bond Wolfe has now been retained by Swali to market the currently vacant floors of the property, with offers based on a rent of £15,000 per annum being sought for each floor.

James Mattin, managing director – agency at Bond Wolfe, explained that Portman House was in the heart of the city’s business district, within easy walking distance of mainline railway stations, the extended Metro tram route and quality restaurants, bars and shops.

Mr Mattin said: “We are delighted to have secured this prime mixed-use investment on behalf of a retained client.

“The property is in a superb location directly opposite St Philip’s Cathedral and provides the buyer with ample asset management opportunities.

“The investment is anchored by a highly profitable ground floor retail tenant, and we are already in advanced talks with potential tenants for the two void upper floors.

“We continue to see attractive off market investment opportunities and urge buyers to contact us to see how we can assist with their investment requirements.”

Portman House has a shared entrance door leading to the ground floor reception foyer, with staircases to the upper floors.

The property benefits from 24-hour access, gas central heating, kitchen facilities, secondary glazing and views over the square.

The third floor is currently configured as four offices, with refurbished communal toilet facilities on the floor below

Paul Warder of commercial property firm KWB represented the undisclosed seller in the deal.

The seller’s legal advice came from Solomon Taylor & Shaw in London, while Swali was advised by Blackhams Solicitors of Birmingham.

Tushar Batra, a director of Frontier Raas, said: “There’s a big Asian market in Birmingham, which is why we have chosen the city as our second location in the UK.

“It is not just about the Indians but Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Sri Lankans who all love wearing ethic Indian outfit for special occasions.”

“The information we take from this report provides us with a fantastic overview of where we are now, the challenges companies are dealing with and the potential solutions available. All of this will help industry leaders formulate their plans for 2023.”
