Inverness opening the right move for Search
More than 500 people in Inverness found jobs last year thanks to recruitment specialist Search Consultancy.
The Inverness base of the company – its most recent office opening – attracted more than 3,600 job applications in the last 12 months and was able to place 527 in work.
Construction sector and technical recruitment are the most busy areas at the office which has saw business booming in the area in 2014.
The Inverness base is one of 13 Search offices across the UK and recruits across a range of sectors.
Andrew Stephen, Search’s Director for Construction, said: “This is the newest addition to our well-established network of offices and we believe it was the right move at the right time. We enjoyed a strong 2014 in Inverness where construction recruitment accounts for a significant proportion our business, and much of that success is down to repeat business from happy clients.
“Last year also saw the establishment of a new division in Inverness as we spotted a gap in the market. Over the past two years Britain’s manufacturing sector has been growing and there have been developments in the oil and gas fabrication industry so we established Search Technical and are using our sector expertise to provide skilled personnel for these industries.
“We look forward to a prosperous 2015 working with our existing clients as well as attracting new ones.”
Search’s Inverness office, is one of 13 Search offices across the UK, opened in August 2012 in response to client demand.
Its dedicated and experienced consultants cover a range of areas from trades and labour to white collar recruitment.
Temporary recruitment accounted for the majority of business in 2014, with 489 people taking up positions ranging from one-day and one-week contracts through to 12 month contracts. Meanwhile 38 people took up full-time permanent roles.
Search Inverness has recruited for a range of high-profile local projects recently including Inverness Campus and Inverness Royal Academy.
