Nine Twenty secures £500k from IGF Group for job creation and office expansion PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 19 July 2016
IGF, the leading commercial finance provider for SMEs, has provided a £500,000 asset based lending line to Nine Twenty, the leading technology recruiter, to support the company’s extensive growth period. 

The loan has created significant recruitment opportunities, with Nine Twenty currently finalising three senior appointments and opening a new office in Edinburgh in 2017. This forms part of the company’s wider expansion programme, focussing on its three main divisions; Technology, Engineering & Manufacturing and Professional Services.

Nine Twenty boasts an impressive reputation with an approach to recruitment which sees it being the partner of choice for so many. Its leadership under Gordon Brown and financial injection from IGF Group has seen the value of the company increase 10 fold in five years.

Alan Anderson, Director of Scotland, IGF Group, said: “Nine Twenty has an impressive reputation and ambitious growth plans, and has recognised the importance of buying in to its people in order to expand sustainably. We’re extremely pleased that IGF Group could provide not only the finance, but also the advice required to make this a reality.”

Gordon Brown, CEO, Nine Twenty, said: “IGF Group was a natural choice for us, as we were looking for a business partner, not just a financier. Having the whole team sitting alongside us on our journey to growth has been an enjoyable and exciting experience, providing the support and guidance we have needed.”

This deal comes as the latest in a string of partnerships from IGF Group, which is rapidly increasing its reach amongst businesses in Scotland.
