Now settled into impressive new premises at the Oldham Business Centre, staff at Hays Recruitment in the town centre are gearing up to welcome lots of new clients and new prospective job seekers.

Hays plc is a leading British (Global) company providing recruitment and human resources services across 33 countries around the world.

It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

On a much more local level, however, business is booming following the recent move of Oldham headquarters from nearby Brunswick Square as local job-seekers seek top quality advice and exciting placements, both temporary and permanent.

Asked about the eagerly-awaited move of premises, Office manager Sarah Costin said: “We’re the busiest we’ve been for a number of years. The market is absolutely booming.

“It seems like there’s jobs out there for everybody.

“We felt we needed to modernise the Hays office environment.

“We’d been at the previous building for 20 years, so we did need to make it a bit more exciting and basically bring Hays Oldham into the 21st century.

“The Oldham Business Centre offers a more welcoming environment.

“It’s slightly bigger here too, and we can comfortably seat more people in the office as we look to expand the business – that’s definitely something we want to do.

“Our new office base is much easier to find and there’s good parking facilities in the area.

“This is just a much better spot all round.”

Hays Oldham specialises in handling office support, and accountancy and finance (both qualified and unqualified) temporary and permanent job opportunities.

“We always have a mixture of temporary and permanent roles on offer,” added Sarah.

A candidate open day is taking place at Hays Oldham next Wednesday, November 14, and a client open day on Thursday, November 15, giving job seekers and recruiters the opportunity to speak with their expert and highly experienced recruitment team.

Get along to the office, which is situated at the Oldham Business Centre (adjoining University College Oldham), anytime between 8.30am-6pm.

Sarah added: “We are really happy in our new office and with over 50 years recruitment experience at Hays between the team.

"We are very well placed to meet our local recruitment needs both from a client and candidate perspective” 

“Come along and have a confidential chat or give us a call on 0161 624 4232 - we are ready to change your life!”
