               HELPHIRE GROUP PLC ("Helphire" or the "Company")
                 Appointment of new Group Finance Director


Helphire Group (HHR) is pleased to announce the following management changes.
After a lengthy search process which commenced in November 2007 the Company is
delighted to announce the appointment, with effect from 1 April 2008, of Mark
Adams as the new Group Finance Director. Mark, aged 43, qualified as a Chartered
Accountant with Spicer and Oppenheimer.

He has held a number of finance appointments, most recently as Group Finance
Director of Alpha Airports Group plc, one of the world's leading aviation
support companies which provides retail and catering services to airports and
airlines operating through subsidiaries, joint ventures and associate companies
across Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.

He has previously served as Finance Director at three public companies
(Burnfield plc, Field Group plc and Prism Rail plc) and immediately prior to
joining Alpha Airports spent over five years as CFO at another international
business, STA Travel Group.

His background will be invaluable as the Company explores expansion
opportunities in both the UK and Europe.

There are no other matters required to be reported pursuant to LR9.6.3 (2) to
(6) inclusive.

At the same time the current Finance Director, David Lindsay, who has been a
member of the management team since 1996, will assume the responsibilities of
Group Operations Director. David Robertson will continue with his current
responsibilities for Sales and Marketing and he will now be able to focus
increasingly on foreign expansion.

Commenting on these changes Chairman Rodney Baker-Bates said

"We are very happy that we are able to bring to the Company a Finance Director
of the highest calibre. Mark's experience is exactly what we need at this time.
 David Lindsay's experience will continue to be invaluable in the development of
our rapidly evolving operational base and David Robertson will focus
increasingly on our international strategy.  We are faced with opportunities in
our traditional business as well as in new markets and the increased strength of
our top management team gives us the ability to exploit them".
