New branch pays dividends for Wiltshire recruitment company

By Anita Jaynes on 25 November, 2015

A recruitment company’s new high street office has beaten its targets and is set for further growth, as the area it supports expands to accommodate more residents and businesses.

24-7 Staffing opened its Amesbury office in the summer and the branch is performing better than predicted, beating targets by more than 60 per cent.

“Opening an office in Amesbury was a strategic decision, which is reaping rewards,” said Julian Thompson, Managing Director at 24-7 Staffing, which has its head office in Chippenham and another branch in Yate.

“Amesbury is a smaller town for us to be in than our other two offices , but we chose it because there are 2,500 more homes planned to be built here in the future, along with allocated employment land. Neighbouring Tidworth is also the site of one of the Ministry of Defence’s new super garrisons, which will bring a large military population and their families into the area.

“Opening in Amesbury was part of planning ahead for the business, but already the branch is doing incredibly well.”

Amesbury’s 24-7 Staffing, which is in Salisbury Street, is managed by Shane Stevens together with consultant Beverley Winning, who have many years recruitment experience between them and have plans to recruit more staff.

24-7 Staffing specialises in providing permanent, temporary and contract staff for the driving, industrial, commercial and healthcare sectors. It is an accredited centre with JAUPT (Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training) for driver CPC training, and also has training provisions for its industrial, commercial and healthcare sectors, as well as First Aid training.

Julian added: “Driving and healthcare sectors often go hand-in-hand in families, particularly in the military, as the jobs are usually shift-based and can be worked around family life.”
