Recruitment Agencies in Poole

Based in the South West of the UK, Poole is a sizeable coastal town in the county of Dorset. The seaport is one of the top tourist destinations in the country, and as such, job opportunities are common within the tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors. Despite this, the town's economy is well balanced and recruitment agencies in Poole will fill a broad range of vacancies.

Employment in Poole

More than 75% of the Poole population are employed in permanent, temporary or contract jobs, with many of these located in the towns / suburbs of Broadstone, Canford Heath and Hamworthy. Unemployment in the town is considerably less than that of the rest of Great Britain, with only 4.6% of people (compared to 6.2% nationwide) being thought of as out of work. In fact, this figure is lower than that of surrounding Dorset towns such as Bournemouth and Weymouth.

Key industries for recruitment

Manufacturing is one of the leading fields of recruitment within Poole and is responsible for around 12% of local jobs. These can range from welders to quality assurance professionals. A high volume of manufacturing firms base themselves in the coastal resort and candidates may find opportunities for work within firms such as Sunseeker, Sealed Air and Lush. Poole Pottery was also situated here before being moved in 2007. As a result, there are a number of recruitment agencies within close proximity of the town centre that have expertise in filling manufacturing jobs.

Poole Harbour once made the town a key shipping port, and despite its general decline, still remains an important channel for trading vessels and passenger ferries. Agencies that recruit maritime, logistics and distribution staff are therefore commonly in demand, and many can be found close to the quay and bay areas.

Due to the impact that tourism has on the local economy, food, hospitality and retail vacancies are largely dictated by seasonal trends. Employers may look to take on contract and temp staff, such as kitchen porters or sales assistants, to address an increase of tourist demand during summer months. Other strong employment fields in Poole include education, finance and business support.
