New recruitment business is launched

 A new Shrewsbury business will be recruiting skilled professionals in to white-collar job roles across Shropshire, Powys and the West Midlands.

Opus Vitae (which is Latin for Life's Work) has been launched by Stuart Danks, who is director of DM Recruitment. He believes he has found a gap in the region’s recruitment needs for skilled workers in the commercial, industrial, and FMCG sectors.

Despite Brexit uncertainty, Mr Danks’ DM Recruitment business has enjoyed a record turnover in the last year, and with the UK’s jobless rate still at its lowest since the 1970s, at 3.8%, it seems job opportunities are still being generated.

Mr Danks said: “I want Opus Vitae to tap in to the region’s highly-skilled workforce and connect them to the vast number of successful businesses here. By securing employees into permanent positions they will benefit from job security, which leads to improved morale and a better work life balance.

“The team at Opus Vitae have years of experience in the recruitment industry and through our comprehensive understanding of business needs, we can source the right candidates for our clients. Finding the right employees will lower staff turnover and reduce hire costs by increasing staff retention. We want employers to build long-lasting relationships with new employees, which will allow their business to grow.

“Brexit has far from slowed a thirst for labour growth in the region. The British Chamber of Commerce's quarterly recruitment outlook report showed that firms in the Midlands and the North of England are more likely to have attempted to recruit and expect their workforce to expand, than firms in the South of England.

“We are looking forward to helping more companies flourish with the right people for their teams. We are confident in our abilities and pledge to fill vacancies within 30 days.”
