TeamJobs seeks new recruiters as digital boom continues

Posted on: 18/09/2017

Increasing demand for IT professionals in Bournemouth and Poole has led to TeamJobs taking on new recruiters.
Karen Brodie, manager of TeamJobs’ new central Bournemouth office, said: “This week alone we have already been asked to recruit  for 20 permanent jobs, including web developers and IT consultants.
“People talk of a downturn, but it’s not the case.
“The boom in digital business is continuing, meaning a high demand for the right candidates.”
“As a result, we are looking for an IT recruitment specialist, a Commercial recruiter and an Engineering recruiter to join us as soon as possible.”
Bournemouth and Poole’s digital economy employs nearly 14,000 people and has been identified as one of the fastest growing ‘hubs’ outside of London.
According to the Tech Nation report, the industry grew by 68 per cent in gross value added (GVA) from 2010-14, to £350million.
TeamJobs opened new, three-storey premises at 7 Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth in May.
In June it appointed Sally Bennett to head up a new Executive Search division, sourcing candidates from senior manager to board level, both nationally and internationally.
TeamJobs MD Jason Gault, said: “The whole area is experiencing incredible growth and has become a magnet for professionals seeking great jobs and a great lifestyle – and that’s good news for everyone.”
Anthony Story is director of Silicon South Limited, the body driving the growth of the creative digital sector in Dorset.
He said: “Since launching in 2015, Tech Nation’s annual report has shown Bournemouth and Poole punching far above its weight to show consistent growth in the digital sector. This is great for a flourishing industry, but the opportunities are not just in the digital sector alone.
“We are seeing blossoming interest from the conurbation’s other leading sectors – such as financial services, health, tourism etc. as they embrace the opportunity to stay competitive and lead in innovation.”
