Increased business confidence leads to rise in hiring staff!

Increased business confidence leads to rise in hiring staff!

The latest report by the REC (Recruitment Employment Confederation) shows that figures released in February by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that the UK jobs market grew in the three months to December 2019.  The number of available jobs was 810,000, an increase of 7,000 which was the first quarterly increase for more than a year.  There was almost 33 million people in employment which is a new record and the employment rate grew to a high of 76.5%.  The unemployment figure remains at 3.8%, which is 0.2% lower than the same period last year.

The REC have also found that permanent hires are increasing as confidence in the economy rises again.  This could be attributed to the December election and the previous Brexit issues finally being resolved.

Intro Personnel continues to recruit for a wide range of both temporary and permanent vacancies, offering attractive opportunities to the diverse workforce of North Staffordshire and South Cheshire and we are pleased to see that business confidence is improving after an unsettling 2019.

Intro Personnel are proud to be a member of the REC and further reading can be found at – https://www.rec.uk.com/news-and-policy/press-releases/ons-labour-market-statistics-businesses-hiring-again-as-confidence-grows

May also sees the work anniversary of Nichola Hubball joining Intro Personnel.  Nichola joined in May 2014 as an Apprentice Administrator and has been an integral part of the Intro Personnel team since then.  She progressed into a Branch Administrator role and in 2017, was promoted to her current position of Recruitment Assistant.  Intro Personnel would like to take the opportunity to thank Nichola for all her hard work and dedication in the last 5 years and the huge part she has played in our success!

Update on the Love Gin event!

Update on the Love Gin event!

Friday 15th March was Gin Night at the Tillington Hall Stafford. The Love Gin event was sponsored by Intro Personnel with proceeds equally benefiting The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice & Katharine House Hospice, which are Intro Personnel’s 2 nominated charities.

Following a great deal of organising and hard work behind the scenes, from cutting up fruit to keeping thirsty supporters’ glasses full, the venue looked great, 220 attendees enjoyed a hugely successful event and hopefully there were not too many sore heads the following morning!

The final figures will be confirmed very soon but early predictions of the event raising £5K look likely to be smashed! Thank you very very much to everyone who supported the event!

Gin Tasting Evening!
