The Only Way Is Up!
2012 proved that recruitment businesses continue to play a vital role in the growth of the UK economy. The past few years have seen companies look to more short-term solutions rather than committing to a permanent salary – so as a result the contract and interim market has been a solution for both. Jobshop UK has been particularly buoyant in this area, supplying the necessary staff to companies in Dorset and Hampshire.
The positive news for the Industry and employees in temporary contracts has been reiterated by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, whose latest report saw short-term staff needs increase for the third month running in October. Additionally, the rate of growth in this sector accelerated to the sharpest for one-and-a-half years. Also this last quarter of 2012 has seen the sharpest rise in permanent job vacancies since June 2011.
Those in business who have been forced to take drastic cuts in order to survive the recession, can now start to look to the future with confidence and a positive attitude. In fact, it was that positive attitude, along with a desire to grow the Jobshop UK brand, which led to Directors, Tracey Wood and Frances Miles, move to larger premises in Bournemouth and take the bold step of launching their new executive employment division, & lsquo;Engage,’ on 21st September 2012.
Having thoroughly researched their market, seen that senior and executive level positions were once again on the rise in Dorset and Hampshire, and with the knowledge that specialising was the key to success in their industry, Tracey and Frances brought Lucy York on board and launched Engage Executive Jobs, aimed at providing senior management and executive level positions.
With the launch of Engage, a division solely devoted to executive search, Companies in Dorset and Hampshire now have an ethical and honest, executive recruitment partner in whom to trust their business too.
