One of the region’s leading recruitment agencies has a lot to look forward to in 2012 and to celebrate its rapid growth they have launched a new website and laid the foundations for their own custom built office complex in the heart of Newcastle city centre.
MTrec Recruitment, currently based in the All Saints Centre in Newcastle started life in 2006 with just two members of staff, a small rented office and minimal investment. Now, just six years later, the business has a multi-million pound turnover, employs more than 20 staff and proudly supplies permanent staff and temporary flexible labour to many of the region’s largest multi-nationals and established SME’s.
The business specialises in supplying temporary and permanent staff to the manufacturing, engineering and warehouse/distribution sectors throughout the North East, with a particularly strong automotive customer base. Currently, MTrec Recruitment have close to a 1000 temporary workers on their books working from Teesside to Northumberland with a growing market in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
The new web site is only the start of MTrec’s ambitious plans for the business this year as Technical Manager, James Doyle explains.
“Our new web site has kicked started a very exciting year for us” he said. “ It was created by the highly talented Box Model Digital Agency and they have developed a unique on line portal that candidates can use to create their own private web account to receive job alerts, send CV’s and search MTrec’ s latest vacancies. Employers are able to submit and track vacancies as well as gain access to industry advice and resources.”
“We are also building our own state of the art office complex in the city centre which should be completed in the summer and this will give us a permanent platform from which we can grow the business even further.”
As well as investing in bricks and mortar, MTrec are also making sure that their own workforce is given the very best training and professional development possible.
“Four of our Recruitment Consultants have just completed their Certificate in Recruitment Practice through the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), the governing body for the recruitment industry in the UK, demonstrating how seriously we take our commitment to our staff and the industry itself.” said James.
“We have also implemented a new human resources strategy to help us achieve our business targets and as part of that we are being audited with a view to achieving the prestigious Investors In People (IIP) award.”
“All in all, 2012 looks like it is going to be a great year for our business, our staff and our clients.”
