Jane said:

“We recruit mainly in the commercial, catering and hospitality, industrial and driving sectors.

“It is very much a candidate-led industry and we pride ourselves on our customer service and the way that we treat candidates.

“Our location in the town has good footfall and the plan is to grow the team and move into new areas.

“I have experience in the public sector and that is one of many areas we will be looking at.

“I joined Berry Recruitment because it is a family group and things get done quickly because the board are so responsive.

“We really do offer local work for local people and the company looks after its staff.”

Berry Recruitment is part of Berry Recruitment Group (BRG) that works from nearly 40 locations across England and Wales.

Last year its turnover was a touch over £69m.
