The agency specialises in the commercial, office and professional and industrial and driving sectors.Recently it won a major contract with a financial services company to recruit 60 staff and another with a waste management company to supply 50 workers.
Wild Recruitment has other branches in Portsmouth, Milton Keynes and London and is part of the national Berry Recruitment Group (BRG).
Its Poole branch has been a major success and manager Kate Foley said: “Since we started our growth has been phenomenal and that is due to the improving local economy. In all the sectors in which we work we have seen a definite upturn and it really is a candidate-driven market with salaries increasing for permanent staff. We outgrew our previous premises and our new site is strategically-placed and means we are easily seen – and we are also benefitingf rom an increase in footfall. We welcome people popping in and having a coffee and a chat to see what we are able to do for them. The jobs market is improving across east Dorset and we have just picked up two major contracts to supply workers.'
