David Wright, director at CBRE's office & industrial agency team, said: “We're thrilled to secure this letting for Rutledge as it looks to build on its impressive business growth over the past 18-months.

“Companies are seeking more flexible, hybrid, efficient and modern office accommodation that is conducive to attracting and retaining a talented workforce, and Rutledge Group's newoffices on Franklin Street certainly fit the bill in this regard.

Rutledge Group offers a range of recruitment and training services across Northern Ireland and RoI with a branch network of 17 sites.

It employs 25 people in Belfast but plans to significantly increase its headcount over the next 12 months.
