Central Employment, the North East-based independent recruitment specialists, has continued its expansion on Teesside with the addition of a new recruitment consultant, Molly Thompson.
Molly, 20, from Redcar, joins the business from the automotive industry and will work closely with both candidates and clients as part of Central Employment’s strategy to support Teesside’s evolving industrial and commercial landscape.
From its office at the Cleveland Business Centre, Middlesbrough, Molly will be responsible for interviewing candidates, carrying out on-site inductions and maintaining client relationships.
Central Employment employs 40 people across the North East, including a team of four based in its Teesside office, which is a key part of its growth ambitions. Having reported strong results for its 2021 financial year, the business is looking to further increase its presence in key sectors and regional industrial hubs.
Predominantly supplying workers to the manufacturing, industrial and pharmaceutical sectors, the business has seen a rise in demand for its permanent employment recruitment services, particularly from growth areas such as clean energy.
Collette Bolton, Teesside branch manager, said: “Molly is a great addition to our team, who will contribute to our continued expansion in the Tees Valley supporting a growing number of clients and candidates. We are keen to help our colleagues develop a long-term career with the business and Molly’s enthusiasm and people skills, together with the experience she brings from the automotive sector, will be valuable to her and the business.”
“This area is experiencing a strong period of investment, particularly in clean energy industries, including hydrogen, and at major development sites such as TeesWorks. We are building strong relationships with both established and new businesses, which are keen to tap into the talented workforce that we can bring to them.”
Molly Thompson, recruitment consultant, said: “Growing up in Redcar I have seen the industrial landscape of the area change and I am keen to play my part in the area’s future. I really enjoyed working in the automotive sector, but I want to help candidates and clients in a range of sectors. Being part of the team at Central Employment is a great opportunity for me and I am looking forward to developing my career with the business.”
