Some areas of the country may still be reporting negative effects from the economic downturn, and shortages in the local jobs market, but things are certainly looking up in Chester, according to one of the city’s fastest-growing recruitment agencies.
Axis Recruitment, based in the centre of Chester and spear-headed by Managing Director Glen Walsh, have recorded record growth figures and are 100% up in comparison to this time last year.
Axis have underlined their success this Summer by winning a major recruitment contract with a huge employer – HSBC. Axis Recruitment will now be working with the high street bank on all of their temporary positions on a national basis.
In terms of permanent positions, Walsh has looked to strengthen his hand by recruiting Nicola Forshaw from another of Chester’s recruitment firms, who will head the permanent recruitment desk at Axis.
Walsh has said of this appointment: “Nicola joins us with over 15 years of recruitment experience, with 10 of those years in the local area. We’re very excited to bring on board such a high calibre of consultant and we’re looking forward to the prospect of Nicola working with our local clients.”
The success of Glen and his team paints a positive image of the employment market in Chester, where the number of jobs available is on the constant rise and Walsh is optimistic about the future:
“We’ve never been so busy. Local employers are sending us new roles every day and it’s a pleasure to be able to send them potential candidates from Chester’s skilled workforce. Everything’s looking good for Chester at the moment and it’s exciting for us to be a part of it.”
Axis Recruitment is a specialist recruitment firm who work with the commercial sector placing temporary, contract and permanent positions throughout Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales.
