Management buyout at Ford & Stanley

Ford & Stanley Recruitment has been bought from its previous owners by its senior management. Specialising in rail, but working across a spectrum of sectors such as digital technology and infrastructure, the company now has its own training academy at its head office on Derby’s Pride Park, as well as offices in Birmingham and London.

Pete and Kate Schofield founded Ford & Stanley in Derby in 2008. 10 years later, Ford & Stanley Group specialises in performance improvement and has several business areas, including GENIUS Performance, which works on improving performance through coaching, leadership development, teamwork and occupational mental ‘healthiness’. It has 35 staff and a £13 million turnover.

Schofield will continue to drive the GENIUS Performance area of the business, while the recruitment side will now be run by senior managers Sam Ford, Daniel Taylor, Chris Jones and Eoin Grindley.

Director Daniel Taylor said: “Employers and candidates recognised right away we were bringing a different approach to recruitment and one that brought them the results they wanted. It’s been an incredible experience so far and genuinely rewarding that the Ford & Stanley team and our customers buy-in to what we set out to do.

“Speaking on behalf of the new owners, we are totally committed to continuing the growth trajectory whilst protecting the legacy Pete and Kate leave behind.”
