Staffing Lab launches with support from The Recruit Venture Group
Ben Yale and Chris Steele have opened Staffing Lab in Telford with support from The Recruit Venture Group. The pair, who opened the agency on Monday 14th October, have 22 years’ combined experience in recruitment.
“We’re really excited about working for ourselves,” said Steele (pictured left). “It means we can now deliver exactly the kind of recruitment service for clients and people that we always wanted to as employees. We are in control.
“I don’t think we could have picked a better location for Staffing Lab than Telford. You see the development and investment coming forward at the business parks like T54, and big businesses choosing to locate in the area like Jaguar Landrover, Polytec and Cosma Castings.
“We’ve worked across the West Midlands and into London, but we firmly believe that Telford is as exciting a place to do business as anywhere in the UK.
“We’re also hugely proud to be contributing to the local economy and helping to boost the town’s growth
Staffing Lab will serve the temporary recruitment needs of the region’s key business sectors, including industrial, automotive, engineering, transport, driving and logistics food, and will also handle permanent staff recruitment.
Yale (pictured right) commented, “Our priority is fully engaging with both job candidates and our clients and really going the extra mile to meet their needs. In the current labour market, that’s all-important. We have several tools and processes which we think are going to really set us apart as a recruitment agency for the area and help us to deliver outstanding service.
“And our experience and local knowledge of course will be a huge advantage.”
After planning for a small profit in year one, they want to quickly scale up the business, leading to a fully developed multi-divisional operation and becoming one of the Telford area’s biggest recruitment agencies. Expansion into new territories through new offices is also a future goal.
“We are just raring to get started,” stated Steele. “We have a fantastic back office infrastructure already, so we are very much hitting the ground running.”
