Castle View Group is an employer and vacancy-led recruitment and training provider. The company was founded in 2001 by CEO Tony Healer and now works across a range of sectors including manufacturing, advanced manufacturing, engineering, health and social care, production and food production, warehouse and storage, and facilities management.

Unlike other pre-employment recruitment and training businesses, Castle View Group offers a unique commitment to providing guaranteed interviews for each candidate, as well as successful employment outcomes for applicants and employers. The business initially started as a recruitment agency, and opened its training division in 2010, from which it has had continued success and has established a reputation as a trusted provider of high-quality service delivery. The business has enjoyed a sustained period of growth and is now a leading provider of pre-employment services, providing training to over 3,000 candidates a year and placing them into roles in over 250 companies nationwide.

The funding will be used to support the continued growth of the business’ training division as a prime contractor, providing a greater depth of pre-employment programs to motivated job seekers in the North East and beyond. The business will also focus on the expansion of its bespoke health and social care service across the region.

Castle View Group

Tony has built a strong business and is now recognised as a well-established national provider dedicated to training and recruitment services. The company addresses a genuine need in the recruitment industry, and we’re delighted to invest following an impressive period of growth. Today’s transaction will support the business on its next phase of growth.
