A recruitment firm based in the region has had a double boost as it appoints a new member of staff to its training division and posts a healthy turnover of £2.75million.
South Tyneside based Zenith People, which traditionally recruits for the Engineering and Manufacturing sectors, has built on its successes of 2010 with a healthy improvement in turnover in what remains a challenging market.
Angela Anderson, Managing Director commented: “Although we’re still operating in a subdued market place there is room for success for dynamic companies who offer a quality and professional service. We’ve taken the initiative and diversified our offering; we’re now a turnkey employment service incorporating Recruitment, Training and Payroll”.
As part of this process, Zenith has recently added Lisa Waller as Partnership Development Manager to the team. Lisa, who has a wealth of experience in training and employer engagement, joins the company from NAC Group.
Lisa said: “I’m excited to be a part of Zenith’s expansion and look forward to helping grow the training element of our service. We’ve already had great success in delivering training and recruitment campaigns for Bridon Ropes and Faerch Plast UK which will create around 200 jobs.
There is certainly an appetite for this type of offering and I can’t wait to see what the rest of 2012 brings”.
Angela continued: “We’re delighted to welcome Lisa to the team and we’re confident we now have the expertise in place to grow what we believe is a unique and cost-effective solution for our Clients. Our aim is always to get people into jobs and we’re now in a position to use our training packages effectively to help that happen.”
