Bournemouth was voted the ‘happiest place in Britain’ in a 2007 poll, which may explain why the economy has retained a certain amount of buoyancy compared to the rest of the country. Being a tourist destination also helps, as the service sector offers the largest amount of employment opportunities in this town of over 150,000 people. Job seekers have the pleasure of knowing firms are still hiring and that more and more permanent positions are being advertised in contrast to temporary placements.
Employment agencies are a useful tool for job-seekers in towns such as Bournemouth as they have established close working relationships with the local firms and employers. They have their ear to the ground when it comes to trends, skills requirements and in depth information about what particular companies are searching for. Employment agencies combine all the knowledge gleaned by potential employees from online searches, newspaper vacancy pages and general advertisements and present the information in a more approachable and helpful way.Daniel Adams is an example of a recruitment agency which specializes in local employment knowledge, and is dedicated to helping people find the perfect job.
