Top Recruiter Invest in New Technology Following Jobs Success


A new website will bring top employers and candidates together to meet a demand for recruits in the IT and executive job sectors.

North Wales recruitment leader Supertemps has unveiled, an online platform targeting candidates seeking IT, senior management and technical vacancies with salaries £30,000 and above.

Managing Director Sarah Ellwood believes laying the foundations for growth in this area and providing a tailor-made website to address skills shortages in the region will set the Colwyn Bay firm apart as a “one-stop shop” for recruitment.

“Our specialist division has undergone a rebrand in response to feedback from clients, as the previous name – Supertemps Specialist Division – was misleading for jobseekers and employers in the executive and IT sectors,” said Sarah.

“We are proud of our long-standing reputation and the Supertemps name but it did not reflect the executive arm of the business, so S2 was born.

“The division has grown rapidly so it seemed right to create an online presence that addresses demand while benefiting people on both sides of the job spectrum.”

She added: “We have a team of consultants who ensure our clients and candidates would benefit from expert knowledge with a strong brand and market footprint to back it up.

“Our new website makes the final stage of the refresh complete and marks an exciting new chapter not only for Supertemps and S2, but for executive recruitment in North Wales and beyond.”

The firm also launches a new construction arm this summer, and has just completed a nationwide contract with Blind Veterans UK.

Some of the leading companies already working closely with S2 and reaping the benefits are telecommunications pioneers Pinacl, Williams Denton chartered accountants, Loyalty Logistix, which provides customer retention solutions for the automotive industry and Wirral-based Survitec, a giant in safety survival.

Supertemps had launched a specialist division to take on the burgeoning executive market in 2012, but it has more than doubled – in terms of business and staff – to the point where a new, bespoke area of the business was the natural next step.

“S2 is a vital part of the Supertemps group, as is the new dedicated construction element of the business, but by offering these independent divisions – together with DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) – we can offer a wide range of services under one roof,” .

“We understand that clients recruiting at the executive end of the market often have different expectations and demands to those recruiting into more generalist positions. There is a different approach and we can meet those expectations by delivering quality outcomes” said Sarah.

“We are an independent agency moving to the next level, and with this new, refreshed addition to the group we really are now a one-stop shop for all of your recruitment needs.”
