National recruitment firm Encore Personnel has announced the expansion of its Derby branch with a new city centre office and several jobs created.
The move saw the firm’s Derby branch relocate from its previous base in Morledge to Gervase House in historic Friar Gate.
Alan Worth will continue to spearhead the growth and development of the Derby office as branch manager. Leading a team of five existing staff, Alan will also oversee the appointment of two additional employees over the coming weeks.
Speaking of the move, Alan said: “Since we opened our Derby office in 2016, there has been exponential growth and increased demand for our services across Derbyshire.
“On average, we are placing 80 to 90 temporary workers each week in positions across multiple sectors including driving and industrial. With that number set to increase, we were in real need of a bigger space to operate from.
“Friar Gate is one of the key cultural, historical and architectural focal points of the city centre and is the perfect location for us to grow as a branch and expand the services we are able to offer our clients.”
The deal was overseen by commercial property agency Innes England on behalf of Chevin Homes.
Alan added, “With multiple new contract wins and pipeline business on the way, this is a really exciting time for Encore Personnel and we look forward to seeing what the next 12 months brings for the team.”
