A Mansfield recruitment firm says business could not be better as it celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

Fresh Start Recruitment, based on Commercial Gate, has revealed that its landmark year has coincided with it homing in on its target of a 25 per cent turnover.

And with figures from September showing that unemployment dropped by 87,000 across the East Midlands, Fresh Start is certainly seeing the effects of this through new sales and existing business growth.

Said a spokeswoman for Fresh Start: “Alongside our success, we are seeing organic growth from our clients, many of whom we have an excellent retention rate with and as their workload increases and they win new contracts, they are requiring more and more staff, both temporary and permanent, enabling us to provide ever increasing opportunities for our candidates within the local community.

“This year alone, we have seen nearly 400 of our temporary candidates taken on by our clients into permanent positions, a testament to the local economy and the skills of our team.”

Fresh Start’s dedicated team of consultants is currently supporting a pool of around 800 candidates, alongside its front desk team which is available to interview new candidates on a daily basis.

Added the spokeswoman: “With a constant demand for staff and as we approach our busiest period, we require enthusiastic people for a variety of positions with immediate starts, all located within a 20 mile radius of Mansfield town centre, with shift patterns available to suit everyone.

“To take advantage of these fantastic opportunities, please come and see us at the job fayre at The Late Lounge on Saturday 25th October or call our office on 01623 676970.
