It’s been six months since we moved into our plush new offices at 15-21 Library Street in Wigan, so we thought that it would be a good time to give you a little tour of new premises and to discuss the Recruitment market in general.
With space for up to 18 consultants, our fully air-conditioned premises have proved a huge hit with clients, candidates and our Intro team. Based on the main commercial street in Wigan town centre, we have over 25 metres of advertising space in our windows, full canteen facilities for staff as well as a welcoming reception and brand-new board room.
2018 has seen an enormous change in the behaviour of our clients and the market in terms of their buying strategy. 90% of the roles that we are currently working with are permanent positions. In the past, lower level roles such as Warehouse Operatives and Junior Engineers were recruited for by way of a temp to perm, this has however moved to straight permanent recruitment. The main cause of this has been the low levels of unemployment experienced in the UK with a lack of skilled people who are currently out of work.
Our staff are experts in their individual fields: Commercial, Sales, Bi-Lingual or Engineering, Trades and Labour thus, we have complete flexibility to provide both Temporary and Permanent staff within these areas.
With the requirement for skilled positions never being greater in the UK, we can offer straight permanent positions for our candidates with some of the region’s top businesses. Our average life-cycle with our clients is approaching the 12-year mark. As our motto states, ‘An Introduction is Just the Beginning’ for any potential clients or candidates who are looking for their next recruit or position.
Why not pop along and say ‘hello’ to us at 15-21 Library Street in Wigan. A friendly face will always be there to greet you 9-5:30 Monday to Thursday and 9-5pm on Fridays.
