BOSSES of a recruitment agency has issued a rallying call for job hunters after expanding to a new office in Kidderminster to deal with demand.

Masstemps, which provides temporary, contract and permanent recruitment solutions to companies and job seekers, has moved to bigger premises in Church Street, having outgrown its previous space in Blackwell Street.

The company is celebrating its 15th anniversary throughout 2021, having also opened an office in Wolverhampton in recent weeks.

Director Andy Jay said that the Kidderminster relocation was a sign that the future is bright for job-seekers, whilst stating that there was a massive shortage of candidates for unskilled, semi-skilled positions right now.

Mayor of Kidderminster, Councillor Juliet Smith, officially opened the new Masstemps branch on Friday (November 19) and Andy also expressed his pride at seeing his company emerge from the global pandemic in a position of such strength.

Mr Jay said: “Our Kidderminster move - coupled with the recent new office opening in Wolverhampton - gives you an idea of how busy we are as a recruitment consultancy right now.

Mayor of Kidderminster, Councillor Juliet Smith, said: “Masstemps’ investment in the town is fantastic news and the type of progress that Kidderminster needs to see. The business is clearly firing on all cylinders and I’m really pleased to see it.

Georgia Burgess, manager of Masstemps’ new Kidderminster office, said: “From a client perspective, we are looking to fill up to 50 positions at any one time. So there are lots of positions out there right now and levels of employment are high.

“This is encouraging when factoring in the difficult times we’ve all been through due to Covid-19 and Brexit. There is a huge shortage of semi-skilled and unskilled candidates, and it is our job to not only find suitable candidates for these roles, but to support those candidates in thereafter, as they embark on their career journeys.

"Our move to Church Street will help us to do this.”
