Burnley succeeded in reinventing itself in the years following the industrial revolution, when the city had an important influence in the national, as well as the global economy. Once a world centre for cotton cloth production and home to several deep coal mines, the last century saw that importance dwindling, with the demise of cloth factories and the closing of the mines. Today, however, it is not cotton that drives the local economy, but a healthy and varied business environment that spans many sectors.
This change in the economic base and the introduction of a more diverse private business sector has seen an increasing number of recruitment agencies set up in Burnley and the surrounding areas. The best agencies such as Daniel Adams offer a large variety of services to both companies looking to employees and people looking for work. Such services may include seeking out a very specialised potential employee with an job-specific skill set, or broader services for job seekers such as providing tips on how to write a job application or how to properly fill out an application form or a CV. Potential employees may also use a professional recruitment agency such as Daniel Adams to familiarise themselves with local regulations and pay structures. Well-reputed agencies like this draw on strong connections with the local business environment and are therefore able to provide detailed information on business trends and vacancies that never make it to the general public.
Companies can save a lot of time and in-house human resource management by using a recruitment agency. The agency can help find the right candidate for a specific job. Well-reputed agencies like Daniel Adams will also be able to draw on their experience and utilise broad media coverage to create the most exposure for a company, both locally and across the country as a whole. Companies such as Daniel Adams may act as the employer and link between a company and an employee, saving valuable time for both.
Apart from ensure the right match between employer and employee, recruitment agencies may also in some cases be useful for information about life in a certain area. Burnley offers various types of good quality housing and its location on the confluence of the River Calder and River Brun makes it attractive for those seeking an attractive place to live and work in the Lancashire region.
