North Wales recruiters started the year on a high with new partnerships and expansion plans.

The team at Colwyn Bay and Bangor-based Supertemps have been inundated with clients seeking employees in multiple industries over the winter months.

Managing Director Sarah Ellwood says demand is increasing for staff in sectors including IT, hospitality, retail, and manufacturing, but warned bosses to move fast for fear of losing out on their ideal applicant.

“The market has been candidate-driven for quite some time but since the onset of the pandemic it has reached new levels,” said Sarah.

“Often businesses will have to make the decision immediately because if they wait even a few hours another offer will have been made and the applicant snapped up.


“We are urging managers and their HR departments to move quickly or miss out.”

With burgeoning private and public sector contracts in place – North Wales Fire and Rescue Service among them – and plans to take on new staff of their own, Sarah is thrilled to see the long-standing firm make its way back from the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis.

Llinos Gutierrez-Jones, Head of Human Resources for North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We have a number of support staff vacancies being advertised currently, and Supertemps are playing a key role in helping us recruit the right people for these rewarding roles.”

Sarah added: “It has been a tough time, for Supertemps and so many of the companies we work with in this region and beyond, but the green shoots are appearing.


“As before we have a lot in store for the year, including our annual employment law event with Manchester-based JMW Solicitors, so we hope to see lots of people join us for that.

“The pandemic has raised many HR and recruitment issues that were unprecedented, so they will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

“Thanks as always to our amazing clients, collaborators and partners for your support – we wish you all the best of luck for 2022.”
