Local recruitment services
Recruitment agencies in Salisbury will often have experience sourcing staff within the defence and associated engineering industries, but this is by no means the limit of their scope. Being a rural area, agricultural industries are also popular around the city. Although it might seem at odds with Salisbury’s status as a historic settlement, it is also a vibrant commercial hub.
