Leeds was ranked 5th in Lonely Planet’s Best in Europe 2017 list thanks to its regeneration, cultural scene and thriving nightlife, restaurants and bars. Our 28-strong team who work for SThree brand, Real Staffing, in the heart of the city are certainly enjoying everything it has to offer, whilst progressing in a career with purpose.
David Jennings, Associate Partner, tells us what life is like at our office in Leeds.
“The team has grown considerably since our Leeds office opened. Many of the team have developed their career here, having benefitted from SThree’s learning and development programme and climbed the career ladder from trainee level. It’s a close knit and very friendly team. We have just returned from a full-team incentive trip to Dublin.’
The local area provides a really exciting context for a successful career in recruitment. Real Staffing in the North focusses on recruiting for the IT, Engineering and Life Sciences sectors.
Leeds is the largest UK city region outside of the capital. It has the largest concentration of Medical Device companies in the UK, and is home to 23 of the fastest growing tech businesses in the North. A career with Real Staffing in Leeds, focussing on these sectors, presents limitless opportunities. And those opportunities are only going to grow as investment into the region continues. Leeds is a fast growing city, already having seen significant investment and with a further £7.3 billion of investment to come. With annual STEM graduates from the Leeds City Region outstripping other northern university cities, the skills pool will continue to accelerate the growth, innovation and development the city currently enjoys.
‘It’s not just about placing candidates in their next role, it’s also very rewarding to think you are helping them progress their career while contributing to the bigger picture of these crucial industries, says David. ‘These are the candidates who will work on the next medical breakthrough or IT innovation’.
‘SThree offers the chance for really clear career progression. I’m very proud that so many of my team who joined as trainees have worked their way up to principal and manager levels. Leeds is a really exciting place to be at the moment and there are big opportunities for success in our office. If you want to make that success yours, we’d love to hear from you!’
