Recruitment Agencies in Dumfries, Dumfriesshire, Scotland

Along Scotland's south west coast, Dumfries has always been known as a market town, rich with produce from its agricultural neighbouring landscape. It was also once a trade centre and was a booming textile manufacturer and the RAF had a base in the town until the late Fifties.
These days Dumfries continues to provide goods to the surrounding areas in the county in the form of major retailers and independent traders. While the Dumfries and Galloway Council offers more employment in the area than any other, there are also a number of firms which have large numbers of staff.
Recruitment agencies search for candidates for roles at retail outlets such as Tesco, Dunelm Mill and Homebase. In the manufacturing field, Gates Proven and Dupont also employ the towns residents, as do energy firm Kellwood and engineering products providers Gates Power.
While business is booming on the outskirts of town thanks to the creation of the Dumfries bypass, efforts are being made by the authorities to regenerate economy back to the town centre.
