HR Recruitment Lancashire
Having been one of the UK’s business hubs for a long time, Lancashire is constantly seeing positive changes. Job seekers can take advantage of the rapid pace of economic development in the area, whether they seek a new position, new company or even a new industry or type of job.
New and exciting opportunities are often announced within the region’s industrial and engineering firms, along with almost constant hiring and turnover in traditional support services such as transport, sales and administration. In recent years, marketing, financing, high-tech and green industries have been added to the mix of opportunities, broadening the options available to job hunters.
As an example of the growth in the area, Preston-based marketing communications consultancy, Freshfield, recently landed a contract providing central marketing services to Boost Business Lancashire, the new £7.2m Lancashire Business Growth Hub. The Lancashire Local Enterprise Partnership led Boost in this venture, and continues to support schemes to bring more work and positions to the area.
Job seekers might also consider engineering positions with Torotrak, which recently agreed to a £23m deal to buy auto tech firm Flybrid Automotive. Silverstone-based Flybrid developed fuel efficiency equipment for Formula 1 cars that is now being used in general autos and commercial vehicles. Then there’s Cuadrilla Resources, one of the area’s shale gas ‘fracking’ businesses, which amongst other related companies will possibly add about 1,700 jobs to Lancashire’s vacancy lists.
Of course, savvy job seekers know that using a recruitment agency to narrow down their search to companies specifically seeking their skills saves time and energy. Companies also enlist recruitment firms to help focus their time on business growth, rather than taking days and weeks doing initial screening of candidates for each position. They might even not openly advertise some positions.
Using a professional recruitment firm like Daniel Adams positions job seekers and employers right where they should be. A good recruitment firm knows each company’s Human Resources department’s specific needs, and endeavours to match these with candidates skills and aspirations. By evaluating each individual’s unique job path and helping update their skills, they can create a happy union between the two parties and create a fruitful and profitable relationship.
