Hays relocates to larger office in Chelmsford to house growing team

14 January 2016

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, has shown its on-going commitment to Chelmsford and the surrounding areas with the opening of a new much larger office to house a growing team of 18 continuing to serve local businesses.

The office move reflects the growth in the local economy as both large and small organisations across Chelmsford and the surrounding towns are looking to hire. The Hays UK Salary & Recruiting Trends 2016 report found that three quarters of employers in the region are looking to hire additional staff in the next 12 months. In addition to this, roles within the construction sector have increased dramatically fuelled by local house building activity.

The official new office opening by Mayor, Councillor Paul Hutchinson, took place on Thursday 14 January at 5pm, and the new office is located at Summit House on Waterloo Lane in the city centre. The new office allows space to accommodate more interview rooms and space for the growing team.

Jane Donnelly, Director at Hays in Chelmsford, commented on the new office opening, “In the past year we have seen a real surge in confidence in the Essex market, we have even launched a mechanical and electrical division as the increase in house building activity has led to a demand for skilled, experienced trades people.
“This is a great move for the team and also allows space for our plans to take on new staff in the near future as we continue to develop our service to local individuals and businesses. We invite local professionals to make an appointment to meet the team for one-to-one career advice.”

The Hays team has had a presence in Chelmsford for over 10 years and recruits for roles across office support, accountancy and finance, senior finance, human resources and construction and property and can provide recruitment advice to local businesses.
