A LOCAL recruitment business has celebrated a milestone in helping people in Somerset find jobs for the last 15 years.

Working with job seekers across the South West, Simple Recruitment, from Midsomer Norton, has been consulting for both temporary and permanent roles within the industrial and commercial sectors on a variety of levels.

Opening its doors at the height of the recession in 2009, the company has faced challenging conditions since the start but has managed to survive.

Originally covering only the Somerset area, they have expanded their branches over the course of time to cover Bath, further into Somerset, then North Devon, and finally Wiltshire with great success.

Jayla Wilcox, managing director, Simple Recruitment, said: “I founded Simple Recruitment to deliver ‘simple’, trusted, and inexpensive recruitment solutions to local businesses.

“I was, and always will be passionate about providing candidates with reliable, varied, and honest job opportunities that cater to their needs and experiences. 15 years is a monumental achievement but we’re nowhere near close to resting on our laurels just yet.”

Looking to the future, Simple Recruitment plans to continue to partner with local businesses and candidates to offer great opportunities.
