Healthcare to benefit from recruitment acquisition

Healthcare and medical organisations will benefit from the recent acquisition of Affinity Workforce by CRG, a UK leader in the healthcare and social care staff market. The acquisition on the 11th October brings infrastructure, scale and expertise to the market, enabling quicker and more cost-effective access to permanent and temporary healthcare professionals, and excellent career opportunities for individuals.

As CRG’s second acquisition of the year in this sector, Affinity complements the impressive portfolio of businesses within CRG by incorporating the well-established brands of Team24 and Medicare First into their health and social care business.

All companies in the group embrace the ethos of developing a better way to deliver public and private sector staffing. With 27 branches across the UK, the CRG group is dedicated to providing great career opportunities for nurses, healthcare workers, teachers and social workers with respected employers across the UK.

Ian Munro, group CEO and Founder, says, “The addition of Affinity to the group brings together two forerunners in their sectors and more than 25 years’ combined workforce solutions delivery. The coalescence of Affinity’s experience and footprint in the health and social care sectors, plus education, provides a great opportunity for organisations to benefit from the scale of our experience and personal approach of our employees.”

Ian Munro and Tristan Ramus, the Founders of CRG, acquired Affinity Workforce from Endless LLP for an undisclosed sum.

Transactional due diligence was conducted by FRP Advisory LLP and Rob McCarthy, legal support from Chris King, Hemmingway’s Solicitors Limited and funding  for the transaction was provided by Close Brothers. Andrew Metcalfe Deputy Head of Sales for Close Brothers said ‘We are delighted to support CRG in this recent acquisition as the business continues to grow and develop’.

Endless LLP were advised by Deloitte (Katie Folwell-Davies), Osborne Clark (Tim Hewens and Max Millington) and PWC (Mike Seaton).
