Employment in South Oxfordshire is set to expand again if the views of local employment agencies are anything to go by…

Two recruitment firms have expanded to bigger offices within Howbery Business Park in Wallingford.

Atlas Employment Group has launched a new education division, Key Stage Teachers, and intends to double its staff from four to 10 by the years’ end.  Director Liam Nugent said “Our turnover has increased by 200 per cent since we moved into the park in August last year.  Oxfordshire has an entrepreneurial spirit and we hope our expansion mirrors the business growth of our clients.”

Construction and engineering recruitment Edge International moved to the park two years ago. Director Victoria Ricketts said “Its fantastic the park has been able to accommodate our growth”

Howbery Park’s finance director Lauren Patterson said “Edge International and Atlas Employment Group clearly have a wealth of experience in their specialist recruitment areas.”
