Berry Recruitment’s branch in Falmouth has relocated to Truro as it expands to cover the entire county of Cornwall.
The agency – part of the national recruiter Berry Recruitment Group (BRG) – is also looking to add to its team of five.
Manager Rebecca Hilling said that there were plenty of good quality jobs in Cornwall and finding suitable candidates was the main issue for many employers.
The branch – now re-branded as Berry Recruitment Cornwall – had been in Falmouth for more than a decade but Rebecca decided a move to Truro would aid the expansion.
In the last year the branch has added a ‘commercial’ desk and has been recruiting heavily in the finance sector and within office recruitment.
It is continuing to recruit in the construction, driving, industrial, hospitality and catering sectors from the new premises in Charles Street.
Rebecca said: “The move will benefit us in many ways, not least because there are more people here so we are getting more walk-ins and access to more candidates.
“The market is very much weighted in favour of job-seekers and we have opportunities in all sectors that we cover.
“We are looking to bring in two or three more consultants to assist with the workload which indicates that the economy is buoyant.
“Being in Truro means we are more centrally located in the county and therefore it is easier for candidates to visit us.
“Our existing clients will notice no change in our service and we look forward to engaging with the business community in Truro.
“Having the weight of a national company behind us really helps and we are able to draw on all that expertise and experience.”
Berry Recruitment has 34 branches across England and Wales.
