GROWING demand for executive, professional and IT staff to fill jobs in north Wales has prompted an employment agency to launch a specialist recruitment division.
Supertemps has appointed David Brian, who previously recruited senior and technical IT staff for London-based government, financial and legal sectors, to head up the new “Supertemps Specialist Recruitment” a division of Supertemps Ltd, working across north Wales and the north West.
His previous position in the company has been backfilled by new addition Tanya Roberts, who will look after the agency’s public sector clients in North Wales.
David, 28 from Colwyn Bay, previously worked for national recruitment agencies such as Badenoch and Clark in London. As one of its best recruiters, he was invited to present to the likes of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on matters such as IT procurement.
He said many employers mistakenly believe they require larger, national recruitment firms to find the best talent for specific jobs.
“Some employers have a mindset that local recruiters are only for lower level jobs, for example data inputting, rather than directors or professional IT or finance managers,” he said.
“So they often use two employment agencies, local and national, to cover all bases. But research amongst some of our clients has shown that with national agencies they are losing the local knowledge, flexibility and accessibility a local recruiter can offer.
“Provided that the local agency has a specialist team with proven experience in filling senior jobs, and that they utilise cutting edge systems, there should be no need to use two agencies. Most nationals recruit locally to the employer anyway - we all tap in to the same candidate pool. Some of our larger clients are now realising this and are loving the efficiencies gained by placing all their requirements with one local, but extremely proficient, provider”.
As an agency local to north Wales employers, Supertemps will ensure clients can fill all jobs through just one competent agency. Permanent recruitment has also become a large part of the Company’s business over recent years alongside the temporary job sector for which it was historically known throughout north Wales.
During a year-out, David taught English in a Swahili-speaking school in Tanzania, and has travelled around the world.
Previously a temporary worker, Tanya has lots of experience in the recruitment industry thanks to roles with JobCentre Plus and employment service A4E.
Supertemps is the longest established recruitment agency in North Wales. It has a mix of private and public sector clients and fills permanent and temporary jobs across many sectors including engineering, finance, IT, manufacturing, hospitality and commercial throughout north Wales and the north west.
