Servoca was formerly known as Multi Group. It originally floated as a tool hire company but those operations ran into financial difficulties and were sold. Multi then moved into recruitment but its initial acquisitions did not perform as well as it hoped. Dream Group reversed into Multi in June in order to form Servoca. Dream’s core business supplies staff to the police and the rest of the criminal justice sector. Other recruitment activities cover the medical, care and education sectors.
