Recruitment specialist is latest company to join Sunny Bank Mills’ revolution


Maze Recruitment Group, a leading Yorkshire-based education recruitment specialist, has moved to the historic Sunny Banks Mills in Farsley.

Maze has taken high-quality space in the iconic 1912 Mill and joins over 100 other companies which have moved to the renovated mill complex during the past 11 years.

Nicola Wilson, the managing director of Maze, explained the reasons behind the decision to relocate to Sunny Bank Mills.

“We set up our business in 2020 initially working from home but the plan was always to open our own office in the Leeds area,” she said. “We’re now in the second phase of scaling our business and have been looking for suitable office space for a while. 

“Our new offices in the 1912 Mill are perfect, and we now have the right space to expand. We love the amenities at Sunny Bank Mills – the gym, yoga rooms, eateries, pub and so on. It’s a little community all in one place. The grounds are lovely, the woodlands, local parks, the outdoor area and the fact Sunny Bank Mills is dog friendly was a bonus.”

Maze offers a range of comprehensive recruitment solutions, including business psychology services, which are tailor-made to suit individual client requirements and which help to create sustainable improvements in performance, whilst enhancing employee well-being. 

Since 2012 Sunny Bank Mills, one of the most famous family-owned mills in Yorkshire, has been transformed into a modern office and mixed-use complex for the 21st century, creating more than 400 sustainable new jobs.

John Gaunt commented: “We are delighted to welcome such a forward-thinking, dynamic and successful company like Maze to Sunny Bank Mills. This move is a resounding endorsement of the quality of our flagship 1912 Mill, where the flexible space will allow the company to thrive.

“The progress of Maze during the past three years speaks for itself and we are confident that their decision to join a vibrant business and cultural community here at Sunny Bank Mills will suit the company perfectly.”

The 1912 Mill is the most prominent and spacious building in the mill complex. Plans are now being drawn up to refurbish the building’s remaining 15,000 sq ft into quality office space over two floors, which will be available to let in a variety of configurations.
