The recruitment drive takes Sheffield Haworth's employees to 50. In 2000 the firm had a record year with turnover increasing by 80% year-on-year.
In spite of the note of caution in the current climate among investment banks, Tim Sheffield, group chief executive and founder of Sheffield Haworth, is taking a long-term view. "This is not the end of the hiring drive and we plan to announce further hires over the next six months," he said.
