Recruitment agency Premier Placement Services is now open for business in the heart of Crewe with a new office based on Nantwich Road.
The new office marks an expansion for the agency into Cheshire, as it is already well established in Staffordshire having celebrated 20 years in business this year.
The Crewe base will serve employers and jobseekers within the driving, office, technical, industrial and skilled sectors within the railway town and surrounding areas. Existing clients include Bargain Booze, Rymans, Cheshire East Council and the supply of staff to the NHS.
Managing director Jonathan Harper said the expansion into Cheshire was essential to the continued growth of the business.
He said: “Opening an office in Crewe represents a great opportunity for us to serve employers and employees this side of the M6, and the arrival of HS2 will open up the jobs market here.
“With several housing projects already underway to create new homes in this area, HS2 will make a difference to the labour force here so there’s plenty of scope. For us it is the right time to be here to do business.”
The office has undergone a complete £100,000 refurbishment having been taken back to the bare brick, and further investment is planned for additional staff as the office expands.
He added: “We already offer our full range of services from here with jobs across driving, industrial, technical and office, and we’re planning to employ a further two staff for this branch very soon.
“Although we’ve only been open a short time and not really advertised ourselves here yet, the response we’ve had has been really positive and we’ve already had plenty of people coming through our door.
“Right now we’re looking for production staff, warehousing staff and in particular drivers of Large Goods Vehicles, but they have to be the right people, as we’ve always been about more than simply filling a seat which is why we’ve been in business this long.
“We can always find work for the right person and we undertake a detailed interview process to make sure we get it right for both the employer and employee. It’s that personal touch and attention to detail which has kept the majority of our clients with us since we began in business.”
