PRESS RELEASE: Major independent recruiter continues expansion into Southampton
One of the UK’s largest independent recruitment organisations today (Monday) opened a new office in Southampton to increase support for businesses in the region.
Sanderson Recruitment is part of Resource Source Group (RSG) headquartered in Bristol and specialising in the IT, finance, business change, corporate services and Government sectors.
It has operated in Southampton for 15 years but has not had a presence in the city until now.The office in Ocean Village will start out with three members of skilled recruiters and the team will be actively recruiting young talent from the region to put through RSG’s Training Academy.The first task will be cementing ongoing relationships with clients such as Carnival, Specsavers, SSE, Kingfisher Plc and Old Mutual Wealth.
The office will be led by Hannah Waddington, who went to Peter Symonds College in nearby Winchester. Hannah joined Sanderson as a consultant in January 2014, and is moving down from Edinburgh to take the regional manager role.
She said: “With this opening we can operate more effectively as a business partner to applicants and clients.“By recruiting from the heart of our client organisations we’re delivering the best results for customers, and serving the local economy.”
The opening adds to Sanderson offices in Cardiff, Dublin, Edinburgh, London, Manchester, Munich, Reading and Bristol. RSG Managing Director Jon Ball said: “We’ve worked with clients from Southampton for 15 years, and have wanted to open a Sanderson office here for some time.
“Companies in and around Southampton continue to invest in top talent and also volume recruitment - contract and permanent - which has opened significant opportunities within the jobs market. “We’re proud to be opening this office in Ocean Village, and look forward to supporting its growth as a thriving part of the business community.”
