Monday 7th September 2020

Gordons has advised a Leeds-based company providing funding and back office services to recruitment agencies on its acquisition by Workr Group, a leading international employment services provider

Founded in 2003, Easypay, employs a team of 25 experts who deeply understand the recruitment funding landscape. The company is uniquely equipped to provide personalised solutions that support the growth of their existing and start-up recruitment agency clients.

Easypay will join Workr Solutions, an existing business unit of Workr Group, that specialises in accelerating time to value for recruitment agencies and end-clients by providing specialist consultancy services and innovative back office solutions.

A team from Gordons led by corporate solicitor Amy Pierechod advised Easypays shareholders on the deal.

The acquisition will extend Workr Solutions’ services to include funding capabilities and will be headed by Yves Bizimana, managing director of Workr Solutions.

Bizimana said; “At Workr Solutions we have seen an increase in opportunities to manage more of our clients’ back office functions, allowing them to focus on recruiting. Funding is a key challenge for many of our partners and Easypay’s expertise will allow us to add even more value to the industry.”

Stephen Mix, director at Workr Group, led the acquisition and commented: “Easypay is a fantastic business with strong core fundamentals, focusing on customer service and good operational controls. The acquisition adds to our portfolio of complementary companies that have been designed to simplify flexible working across the supply chain. It is the sixth acquisition we have made in the last five years and will help fuel our continued growth.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Easypay founder, Amanda Hobson, said: ‘Workr Group stood out in the sale process as their strong values-led culture closely aligned to that of our own. Our management team are looking forward to becoming an integral part of Workr Solutions and supporting one another to continue our strong growth trajectories.”
