Bluestones Group has launched its latest joint venture RPM Skilled and Technical, a North West based recruitment specialist business. Headquartered in Warrington the company will service UK clients operating primarily in the manufacturing and technical sectors.

Rob Millns has launched the business after more than two decades of working in skilled and technical recruitment.

On the launch, Rob said, “Over the years I’ve built up a large network of clients and candidates. Although I’ve always held senior roles in recruitment businesses I’ve wanted to set up my own recruitment business for some time. With the support and investment from the Bluestones Group, I’ve finally been able to realise my vision of setting up my own agency. I’m looking forward to the challenge today and providing the same high-level of service to my clients and candidates as I always have.”

Rob has been working with the Bluestones Group team and benefiting from all the shared services that joint ventures have access to – including marketing, finance, HR and IT – so the proven Bluestones approach to investing and supporting start-ups, both from a financial and operational perspective has meant the turnaround on the new brand launch has been quick and seamless.

Bluestones Group board sponsor and divisional CEO, Paul Broderick commented, “Rob has a fantastic background in his sector and he’s well regarded by both clients and candidates alike. His experience and commitment to quality make him exactly the type of person we look to invest in.”

RPM Skilled and Technical officially launched on 2nd August and is open for business now. The business operates within manufacturing, oil and gas, aerospace, automotive, power generation, food & FMCG and heavy engineering across the UK. To find out more about RPM Skilled and Technical, visit
