High street recruitment firm in business awards final
It’s the first time that Swindon-based Field Recruitment has entered the awards, and the team are in contention for the hotly-fought Small Business of the Year category. The awards ceremony takes place in April.
High street recruiter Field was set up in 1974 - the year of the three-day week and two General Elections – and last year celebrated 40 years in business. The company has two Swindon offices and is run by Andrew Careswell, who joined in 1999 as a member of the team, was promoted to branch manager in 2003 and bought the business in 2008.
“We’re delighted to be through to the finals of these awards, particularly as this is the first time we have entered,” said Careswell. “We have a really strong team of people at Field, who work incredibly hard to provide a great service to our clients and our candidates, so this award is really recognition of all the effort they put in. Field is only as good as our people.”
Field has a team of around 20, placing permanent, temporary and contract staff to a range of clients throughout the South West and beyond. Field has also extended its services beyond recruitment, offering a skills testing service to businesses and organisations such as the NHS for both new recruits and existing staff it also hosts a free jobs board, where any employer can post a vacancy.
