The Work Shop sees job opportunities soaring

The Work Shop sees job opportunities soaringA Hampshire recruitment agency has a record number of vacancies on offer, a fact which could put the lie to doom-laden claims by pundits that 2011 will be an horrendous year for job seekers.Ringwood-based agency The Work Shop has seen the number of job vacancies on their books soar by 25% compared with this time last year.Phil Harmsworth, co-founder and joint-director of The Work Shop said: Obviously we are very pleased with the way 2011 has started and it only goes to show that if you work hard, charge realistic fees and provide a good, honest service then you will succeed.The Work Shop are seeking applications for a wide range of jobs on behalf of their clients, including general office administration positions, design engineers, customer service and account managers.Despite the increased number of jobs available at The Work Shop the economic pessimism pervading the country appears to be deterring job seekers from availing of these opportunities. New applicants registering with the agency are down compared with the same period in 2010.The Work Shop fellow director and co-founder Shelley Alger explained: It might be that employees are nervous to start looking for a new position whilst there is so much speculation in the press regarding high unemployment figures.But in some ways that makes our life easier as it is down to us to find the right applicant rather than spending our time wading through high volume applications that are not right.
