Recruitment Agencies based in Cornwall, South West, UK

Recruitment in Cornwall is strong across a range of sectors and employment firms in the area help support job markets in settlements such as Truro, Newquay, St Austell and Falmouth. The southwest county, neighboured by the English Channel and Celtic Sea, once relied heavily on tourism, however the local economy is now dependent on a wider array of vocations. As a result, recruitment agencies in the Cornwall area will commonly aid hires in multiple industries.

Key industries in the county

The tourism industry attracts 5 million visitors annually and this helps sustain more than 25% of the jobs in Cornwall. Recruitment in tourism is divided into subsectors such as leisure, food & drink and hospitality. Kitchen and chef jobs are therefore common across the county, as are those in housekeeping and hotel management. Attractions, including the Eden Project near St Austell or the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, also provide permanent or temporary recruitment opportunities.

Public sector staffing demands results in a constant level of demand for Cornish recruitment agencies. There are nearly 55,000 members of staff employed within the local public sector, with some of the most notable employers including the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust, Cornwall Council and Falmouth University. This means that teaching staff will find career opportunities here, as well as nurses and social workers.

Fishing and agriculture were traditionally important industries for employment in Cornwall, with Penzance Harbour and St Ives Bay prospering in particular. Despite this being in slight decline, Cornwall still has a proud farming economy and offers agricultural and horticultural job prospects. Some of the biggest local employers in this field include Boddingtons and Southern England Farms Ltd.
