Transline said that it is close to securing inward investment, and is lodging a Notice of Intention, following media reports that the company is “facing administration”.
Transline is the employment agency that supplied 1,700 temporary workers to Sports Direct at its Shirebrook warehouse which was later found to be paying workers under the minimum wage.
A Transline spokesperson said: “The company has suffered as a result of a continued move to tighter margins in the recruitment industry. We are close to securing inward investment that will allow us to drive forward with continued growth and infrastructure development, and have lodged the Notice of Intention to protect the business, our employees and our customers as we complete this process.
“The welfare of our staff and our relationships with our customers are of paramount importance, and we are continuing our service and operations as normal. We expect to hear more regarding potential trading investments imminently.”
