webrecruit helps new neighbour to increase headcount
A fast-growing Building Services Engineering Company has increased its team to sixty people, thanks to the help of new neighbour, webrecruit.
Cannings, based in Exeter, increased its team of engineers, and are interviewing for a further five appointments, following business growth and their decision to try an alternative recruitment method.
The company, one of the largest Building Services Engineering companies in the South West, enlisted the help of the online recruitment agency after it realised it needed to increase the team to cope with demand. By chance, the recruiter moved into the building and was able to help increase the team thanks to its use of the internet.
Bradley Cannings, Managing Director of Cannings, said: ‘Our company keeps on going from strength to strength. We’re now up to 60 people, and still growing. I’d previously relied on traditional agencies to recruit, but it was just by chance our new neighbour was a different kind of recruiter. We decided to try something new – and it paid off’.
webrecruit CEO, Phil Roebuck, commented: ‘It’s great to see that despite the current economic climate, businesses in Exeter are still experiencing growth and that SME owners, such as Bradley, are willing to think creatively when it comes to recruiting new staff.’
