Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Business Kent Update - By Sam Wil­liams

Ash­ford’s an­gels are on a high af­ter win­ning big at their com­pany’s an­nual awards cer­e­mony.

Of­fice An­gels, a re­cruit­ment firm based in Park Mall, was named top per­form­ing branch for a record third year in a row at the cer­e­mony, held in Ham­mer­smith.

In ad­di­tion, con­sul­tant Lind­say Bon­ner re­tained her crown as num­ber one Temps Con­sul­tant in the UK.

As a re­ward, the team have won a trip to Mi­ami.

Man­ager He­lana Barnes said: “Ash­ford has al­ways had a great va­ri­ety of busi­nesses in the town but re­cruiters un­der­stood that their busi­ness is based on the peo­ple they have work for them.

“I am tes­ta­ment to that here in Ash­ford my­self, your team are the most im­por­tant peo­ple.

“Can­di­dates re­quire­ments are chang­ing, re­cruiters want to know how as a com­pany they can en­gage them, and we talk to our clients not just about re­cruit­ment but re­tain­ing their team.”

The Ash­ford branch cel­e­brated its 10th an­niver­sary last year, and con­tin­ues to set com­pany records in of­fice re­cruit­ment.

Lind­say Bon­ner who has been with the com­pany for eight years added: “I have the big­gest temp desk in the coun­try be­cause our can­di­dates trust we know a good em­ployer and clients trust we know how to se­lect the best can­di­dates even for a short term con­tract.

“We match well and our lo­cal clients leave us to do this.

“Many of our temps who were taken on per­ma­nently have gone on to be­come our clients in lo­cal busi­nesses so per­haps this is why 2015 saw a 26% in­crease in temp to per­ma­nent roles as they see value in this method of re­cruit­ment.”
