Athonas Expansion Brings Job Opportunities to the Local Community
Athona’s Expansion Brings Job Opportunities to the Local Community
Professional boxer Joe Mullender officially opened the new Athona offices on Thursday, 23rd May in Warley Hill Business Park, Brentwood. Local press and our office interiors contractor Southwark & Boon were also in attendance.
Athona focuses on specialist recruitment in the Medical, Health and Education markets. Medical and health professionals are supplied to clients across the UK and teaching staff are supplied to nurseries, schools, colleges and universities in the South East of England.
The relocation to larger premises took place as a result of the company doubling its employees in the past 18 months and plans are in place to expand the company further over the course of the next year.
Athona Celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary
The Athona group will be celebrating a successful 10 years of supplying Permanent, Contract and Temporary staff to clients throughout the UK in August. The team have been working hard to make the next 10 years even better for our candidates, clients and Athona employees.
In this present climate, in terms of workforce we understand the difficulty graduates and entry level workers are experiencing obtaining their first job. Two years ago we launched an internal trainee scheme offering new workers the opportunity to gain experience working at Athona’s head office across different functions of public sector recruitment. This proved to be a huge success and these trainees have gained valid work experience. This year we launch our first of many Talent Assessment Centres for entry level workers and graduates, who if successfully appointed will commence their career in recruitment.
We hold our first Talent Assessment Centre on Thursday 30th May where we invite prospective employees to learn more about Athona and test their key competencies through various workshops. If successful, we hope to hold these events on a monthly basis alongside our regular recruitment strategy.
We recognise that our employees play an integral part in us achieving successes in the future therefore put employees at the heart of our business. We are looking for talented people with a drive to succeed, who in return will be offered competitive salaries, structured career development and most importantly a professional, motivated and ambitious culture.
