JSA Group Aquires Liberty Bishop

We are delighted to announce our acquisition of Liberty Bishop’s UK Umbrella and PSC accountancy services businesses (Liberty Bishop’s international Umbrella businesses are unaffected by this exciting news).

This marks our 12th acquisition transaction since 2013, incorporating the consolidation of over a dozen brands in the sector into its scalable and highly-efficient operating platform and seeing the group now servicing around 18,000 customers via our online, multi-channel, subscription revenue model.

For over 30 years, JSA has provided outstanding service to many tens of thousands of flexible workers, and hundreds of recruitment and staffing businesses, with which we have developed long-term partnerships in support of the inexorable growth and importance of the UK’s flexible workforce.

John Hoskin, CEO of JSA, said: “Liberty Bishop is a well-known and well-established business within our core markets, with a great reputation within the recruitment agency and flexible working community. The company is FCSA accredited and has a reputation for providing excellent and compliant customer service. It has grown strongly over the last couple of years and will contribute meaningfully towards making JSA Group’s Umbrella payroll operations the largest in the UK. Liberty Bishop adds to our position as the established experts in delivering a comprehensive and practical solution set for the contingent supply chain. The quality of the business is a testament to the team that built it and whom we are delighted to welcome to the JSA group.”

He commented further: “This acquisition is the fifth transaction for us since securing external investment in 2018 and continues the execution of our strategy, backed by the significant minority ownership of the group by Universal Partners. We continue to look for more strategic acquisitions in what remains a market with scope for significant further consolidation.”
