Expansion is on the cards!

A STOKE-ON-TRENT recruitment firm is celebrating a successful first year in business.

Directors at Intro Personnel, in Penkhull, say they doubled their initial annual sales target and have made a “record-breaking” start to their second financial year.

Rob Hulse and Stuart Nicholson are now planning to move into bigger premises next year and hope to be able to take on their first members of staff.

Rob said: “We started up in a tough climate but we’re doing well – better than we expected in fact.

“Our plans for 2012 include expansion into new office premises and increasing our workforce.

“At the moment we’re recruiting for quite a different range of positions and we’re still very busy a week before Christmas, which shows that there are companies out there taking people on.”


Intro-duction is going well for personnel firm

RECRUITMENT agency Intro Personnel is celebrating a successful first five months in business.

When it launched in September, the Penkhull-based business targeted placing 25 candidates in permanent positions in its first year of trading.

But by last month it had already found placements for 14 people in the commercial, office, technical engineering and industrial sectors.

A planned expansion into temporary positions in February was brought forward, and by December, six people had been placed.

Director Rob Hulse said: “I feel the reason that we have been successful so far is that we have worked in partnership with both our candidates and clients and have listened to what both parties actually want. It’s very simple but effective.

“We offer a very flexible service.”


Agency Aims to Find Jobs!

TWO experienced recruitment consultants are launching their own business

Rob Hulse and Stuart Nicholson, who have a combined total of 20 years’ experience between them, have set up Intro Personnel, in Penkhull.

The pair say they are aiming to place a minimum of 25 people into local, permanent jobs in their first 12 months, and are also hoping to be able to take on new recruits of their own further down the line.

Rob said the new agency will focus on working in partnership with both job candidates and clients.

He said: “It is vital to listen to what is important to both and not everyone does that. We will meet every client and work-seeker face-to-face to identify the most important things to them.”

Intro, which started trading today, will specialise in vacancies in the commercial and technical sectors, both temporary and permanent.

Rob added: “Due to our previous experience we have built up very strong relationships with businesses in the local area, and are very confident that Intro Personnel will be successful.”

Stuart said part of the firm’s role will be to balance the needs of the candidates and the clients.

He said: “Recruitment is unique in that you have got two customers, the candidate and the company, and both are just as important as the other. We really want to listen to what our customers are saying and offer an honest, professional service.”

Stuart added that although the jobs market has suffered in the economic downturn, he and Rob believe it is showing signs of recovery.

He said: “We want to spread the message that the local job market isn’t as bad as some people believe. It has been a tough two years for every business, but this year is showing some positive signs of recovery.

“Our aim is to place a minimum of 25 people in local, permanent jobs in our first 12 months – we genuinely believe we can help the large number of people in the area looking for employment.”
