Hays opens its doors in Exeter

12 March

Cementing its presence in Exeter, Hays, the leading recruiting expert, has marked its ongoing commitment to the area by launching a new office in the city centre. Over 15 expert consultants will be based in the office at Dix’s Field, Exeter, EX1 1QA. The official launch on Tuesday 12th March is being marked with an event where the Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Rob Newby, will be speaking about employment in the area.

Hays’ recruiting experts in Exeter cover 9 disciplines including education, human resources, office support, accountancy and finance, senior finance, procurement & supply chain, social housing, legal and IT. Our experts have seen an increase in demand in all of these areas over the last 12 months. This demand for qualified professionals is partly due to the significant investment into the planned economic and retail development programme in the area which will strengthen Exeter’s economy.

Geoff Sims, Managing Director of Hays in Exeter, comments: “Exeter is an exciting marketplace, with a number of new initiatives in development such as the Science Park and the City of Science. However, we are still in a challenging economic environment so employers and jobseekers need to be able to access recruitment experts who understand exactly where the opportunities are and have an extensive network of contacts in the area. We look forward to continuing to work closely with local employers over the year ahead.”

Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Rob Newby, comments: "I was very pleased to open the new Hays office in Exeter. In the current financial climate it is great to see an existing business expand in the city to help strengthen the local economy."
