HRC Recruitment, which also has bases in Glasgow and Edinburgh, is looking to add at least three recruiters to its Dundee team and increase its expertise in the facilities management; engineering; healthcare; and electronics, control and instrumentation sectors.
The firm has recently taken more space at its office in the Marketgait area to accommodate rapid growth, with the Dundee team recording a 45 per cent increase in revenues between the third and final quarters of 2018-19.
HRC cited the office’s particular strength in the engineering and manufacturing jobs markets, and pointed to a “robust” pipeline as demand for specialist skills remains high.
The appointment of experienced recruiter Sally Russell, who joined from Entrust People as a principal consultant, and Kirsty McRae, a specialist in facilities management and property services recruitment from Hays, also bolstered the team. HRC said its Dundee operation was spearheading the growth of its 11-strong Scotland-wide manufacturing and engineering offering.
Director for Scotland and head of Dundee Ian McHardy said: “While the Dundee jobs market has experienced some challenges, the overall picture for the city is still positive.
“The past 12 months have exceeded our expectations: we have taken additional office space and added to our team to meet the demand for staff.
“We expect that to continue as we align ourselves with new emerging projects – there are opportunities in abundance in Dundee and we’re poised to support businesses across Tayside, Fife and Aberdeen with the additions to our specialist recruitment teams.”
