Bournemouthrecruitment company invests in a positive future
In a display of confidence and optimism, Bournemouth-based Towngate Personnel is investing in an upgraded IT system to help maintain their position as one of the UK’s leading specialist hospitality recruiters.
Towngate currently holds the CVs of more than 100,000 industry professionals on its database and recruits for hundreds of clients. Working with long-standing IT partners QiC Systems in Eastleigh the upgrade will create much more storage space and speed up access to files.
“This is the first step of a planned overhaul of our IT system,” says director Chris Goles. “We are also planning a brand new, inter-active website and a smartphone app that will make the company even more accessible to both candidates and clients alike.
“Everyone is aware that all business markets are quite difficult at the moment, but we are still very buoyant and this new system shows how positive we are about the future.”
The new server means Towngate can search for and find the most suitable candidates much more quickly.
“When clients contact us they want to know we can supply quality candidates with the necessary experience and qualifications,” adds Chris. “For candidates, they know their details will be maintained and updated quicker than before so that we are able to match them with the right vacancies.”
