Minister Heather Humphreys opens Irish company’s new Manchester office as part of Enterprise Ireland’s Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission

TTM Healthcare Manchester office will employ 15 and build on existing London presence to become UK’s largest provider of healthcare professionals

During Enterprise Ireland’s trade mission to Manchester, which aims to reaffirm Ireland’s important trading relationship with the UK, Minister for Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, today officially opened a new Manchester office for Ennis-headquartered international healthcare specialist recruitment company, TTM Healthcare. The new office forms part of a three year multi-million-euro capital investment by TTM Healthcare to deliver on its ambition to become the largest provider of multidisciplinary healthcare professionals to UK’s hospitals and healthcare facilities. The opening marks the latest phase in the continued expansion of TTM Healthcare, which already has an office in London which currently manages the placement of one in five nurses recruited to the NHS from overseas.

The Enterprise Ireland supported company, which also has operations in Northern Ireland and the Middle East, is already on target to exceed €100 million in revenues for the first time in 2018 and the new Manchester office is part of broader expansion plans for TTM Group to double its revenues and workforce within five years. These ambitious plans extend beyond its traditional healthcare staffing business to its Resilience Care division where it runs its own care facilities that provide outreach, respite and residential services for children and adults with disabilities and home-based services for those with complex medical needs.

Speaking at the opening today, Minister for Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, said: “It is always with a great sense of pride that I hear of Irish businesses expanding internationally, so I am particularly pleased to see at first hand the progress that TTM Healthcare is making. Historically, Ireland was known for the quality of healthcare professionals we trained in Ireland but who developed great careers in the UK. With TTM Healthcare, we’re seeing the Irish continuing with a spirit of excellence in healthcare, this time by providing multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals to a range of healthcare providers across the UK.” 

Pat Breen TD, Minister for Trade, Enterprise and Business said: “TTM Healthcare is a very valued member of the enterprise community in County Clare and it is wonderful to see them developing their international presence.  They have been enormously successful to date and I am confident they will achieve the very ambitious targets they have set for themselves.  I wish them well for their operations in Manchester.”

Paula McDonnell, Managing Director of TTM Healthcare said: “Opening a new Manchester office marks the latest expansion of our international business adding to our existing presence in London and other markets such as Northern Ireland and the Middle East. By having a presence in Manchester it will support the delivery of ambitious plans to be a best-in-class provider of staffing, complex care and disability solutions to organizations and service users right across Europe.”

Marina Donohoe, Enterprise Ireland’s Director of the UK and Northern Europe, said: “There are significant business and partnership opportunities for Irish companies in the UK and particularly so within the Northern Powerhouse region, including Manchester; a dynamic region which is now growing faster than London. TTM Healthcare has achieved outstanding growth in the UK market, and the opening of its Manchester office illustrates that the UK also presents Irish companies with an opportunity to achieve scale. By achieving scale and strong reference customers in the UK, this provides companies with the experience and resource to diversify into other markets.”
