A RECRUITMENT firm has unveiled the team to lead its eastern expansion.
Natasha Jones has joined Supertemps as a Senior Recruitment Consultant and will partner Alex Russell in launching the award-winning firm in north east Wales.
Supertemps and its executive division S2 Recruitment have a strong foothold in the rest of North Wales with bases in Colwyn Bay, Bangor and at M-Sparc on Anglesey.
Managing director Sarah Ellwood says the addition of Natasha, 32, will help them to break new ground in the east of the region.
“Our clients have long called for us to open an office in north east Wales, so we are extending the Supertemps footprint to meet that demand,” said Sarah.
“Natasha has settled in well and hit the ground running having worked in recruitment for several years, so she’s a brilliant addition to the team and we are thrilled to have her on board.”
She added: “We celebrate 40 years in business next year and have a growing workforce with vast experience and passion for our clients and the organisations we work with, so this is the logical next step for us.”
For Natasha, who lives with husband Craig and children Jessica and Oliver in Rhyl, it’s a dream come true.
Ironically, she spent almost a decade in retail and was once herself a candidate with Supertemps before landing her “perfect job”.
“When I was younger and still deciding what I wanted to do Supertemps did help me find a position, so I guess things have come full circle,” she said.
“I enjoyed the retail sector but always wanted to be in recruitment and would not give up until I got there, eventually working for two firms over several years before getting this role with Supertemps.”
Natasha added: “We are focused on our opening in Wrexham or Flintshire and Alex and I are already in touch with current clients and new businesses, to let them know we are on our way.
“There’s already a buzz about Supertemps having more of a presence there and it means we can work even closer with industry in those areas.
“I’m so looking forward to a future with the company, it’s a strong and respected business delivering a first-class service with a brilliant reputation so to be a part of that is really exciting.”
Alex, from Flint, echoed those words and says the advancement of Supertemps complements the success of areas including Deeside Enterprise Zone, Wrexham Industrial Estate and business parks along the A55.
The 22 year-old said: “Being part of the company as it grows into an area I know so well, and playing a key role in that, is something I’m really looking forward to.
“North east Wales is fantastic region with many different types of industry so we are all really excited to see how things develop and will work hard to establish ourselves in that part of the country.”
