Sugarman sold to Cordant Group

Leading medical, education and social work recruiter the Sugarman Group has been acquired by Cordant Group plc, in a deal advised by Clearwater International.

The move is the first of several planned acquisitions by Cordant Group over the next couple of years, as the business continues to expand into new vertical markets and penetrate existing industry sectors.

The acquisition of the long-established Sugarman brand will allow Cordant Group to have a strong presence in the medical, allied and mental health professions and education sectors. It will also build on the success of Sugarman to further strengthen its reputation in the social care arena including the areas of fostering, adoption and social work. Sugarman will continue to operate as normal under the leadership of Tim Wheeler, underpinned by the support and shared services of the Cordant Group. Internal training programmes and an advanced IT infrastructure are just some of the benefits that will enhance the Sugarman candidate and client experience and intensify the agency's competitive position in its markets.

Cordant Group is a family business which consists of three independent business divisions including recruitment and facilities management solutions.
