New Jobs and Office Move as Warwickshire Recruitment Firm Expands


A Warwickshire recruitment firm is set to bring 15 new jobs to the county as part of an ambitious three-year expansion plan.

Path Selection, specialists in providing candidates for permanent roles in the accountancy, finance, marketing, HR and engineering sectors, will expand its team from six to 21 by 2020 as it helps businesses beat the ‘war for talent’.

The welcomed jobs pledge has also been fuelled by a move from Rugby to new 2,300 sq.ft. offices in Kenilworth’s Stoneleigh Business Park as the firm sets its sights on breaking a £1.2m revenue target in 2017.

The growth news from Path Selection, which in over 12 months has gone on to fill over 100 permanent roles for businesses across the region, also comes as general manager Chris Folly steps up to become managing director.

Chris Folly, managing director of Path Selection, said:

“Finding the right candidates has been tough for businesses in recent years as a war for talent has taken hold in a variety of specialist sectors.

“So I am delighted that we have been able to buck that trend and provide first-class service and candidates for our clients.

“That success has contributed to our future plans and meant that we can expand by moving from our current site in Rugby and into the well-connected Stoneleigh Park.

“It’s a move and an investment as part of our strategy working towards 2020 – a strategy that will see us trebling the size of the team with a variety of specialist recruiters, sales and administration roles.

“It’s great news for us but also for the economy in this corner of Warwickshire.”

Path Selection is a division of award-winning Midland employment and training group, eResponse. The group launched the division in January 2015 shortly after it was voted as one of the UK’s top employers and listed at number 45 in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100.

Joe Alekna, managing director of eResponse Group, added:

“Since we launched Path Selection 18 months ago Chris has led the business to unprecedented levels of success, working with PLCs and SMEs to help them bring in the best talent available.

“We’re thrilled to announce more jobs and our relocation to Stoneleigh Park. It’s the perfect move at the perfect time for Chris and the team.”
