In recent times job creation announcements in the northwest of England, including Bolton Borough, have been dominated by service sector growth. Call centres, data processing companies and service centres continue to proliferate and the retail and distribution industries are not far behind.
The most useful recruitment agencies have a good knowledge of the local area and will be in constant touch with large and small businesses who want to fill specialised niches in their companies. Firms such as Daniel Adams conduct face to face interviews in order to ensure that candidates can be appropriately matched to the right position. This takes a lot of the leg work out of looking for employment and can make the process into a more streamlined and successful experience.
Over forty percent of all overseas-owned companies in the region originate from the EU, with Dutch and German companies investing the most, while more than twenty-five percent of overseas companies are North American. This creates a good mix of international and locally-based employment prospects with particular advantages for new graduates.
The growth industries in the Bolton area are by nature inclined towards using agency workers and positions in accounts or secretarial and administration positions are advertised on a regular basis. Professional agencies such as Daniel Adams can offer valuable support services such as help with job applications and interview techniques. They constantly liaise with the companies located in Bolton to make sure that successful candidates can be matched to the required position within the company.
