Better outlook for businesses

Have your say

A RISING number of firms in South Yorkshire are looking to expand workforces in the next few months, according to recruitment specialists.

Rotherham-based Elevation Recruitment has reported a rise in demand from local businesses hoping to take on engineers this year, despite it being branded a ‘critical time’ for the UK economy.

John Bohan, of Elevation, said: “Over the past years we’ve seen few engineering firms looking to take on new recruits, with many instead choosing to strip down their work force.

“This rise is hopefully an indication of things to come.”
