Hays opens doors in Lancaster and Burnley

17 June 2016

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, has cemented its commitment to the business community in Lancashire and South Cumbria with the opening of new offices in Lancaster and Burnley. 


The Lancaster office, on North Road in the City, will be home to recruitment consultants recruiting for professionals in the education, finance, office support and construction sectors. The team at the new office on St James Row, Burnley, will recruit for roles in finance, office support, human resources and education and will manage recruitment for engineering businesses across Lancashire. 

Jeff Taylor, Director at Hays in the North West, commented on the opening of the new offices: “The opening of these two new offices is a sign of the many exciting opportunities for job seekers across Lancashire and the South Lakes areas. We have been part of the business community in Lancashire for well over 20 years, and have seen a recent boost to local job prospects thanks to investment in infrastructure in the region.

Both Lancaster and Burnley have competitive jobs markets and employers and jobseekers alike need to be able to understand where the opportunities are for their business and careers. By opening these new offices we will be able to bring our consultants’ excellent networks and knowledge of these professions closer to businesses and individuals in Lancaster and Burnley.” 

The new offices join Hays’ network of 11 offices across the North West of England, and 100 offices in the UK and Ireland.
