A recruitment company from Rotherham has won a contract to help a seafood business from Norfolk fill full and part time posts at its new crab processing plant in Cromer.

Stafforce has already started work for Jonas Seafood, founded by former fisherman and Cromer resident Kevin Jonas to fill the gap after the Cromer Crab company closed with the loss of more than 200 jobs last year.

“It was a major blow to the town when crab processing ceased in Cromer and since then I’ve been working hard to bring it back to its rightful place,” said Mr Jonas, who runs the business with Nick Samujlik.

“I am pleased to be working with Stafforce, which has lots of experience in our industry, to create some great career opportunities in Cromer and to put the town back on the map for high quality crab processing.”

Stafforce, which was founded 35 years ago in South Yorkshire and has more than 25 branches and onsite operations nationwide, is no stranger to Norfolk.

The company supplies more than 200 temporary workers to local employers every week and counts Norwich City Council and The Big Prawn Company amongst its clients.
