At the start of 2022 engineering recruitment specialists NRL opened their latest local recruitment branch in Teesside, to meet the growing demand from clients to provide temporary and permanent recruitment solutions across the region. Now, less than a year after setting up, they’re looking to grow their team – thanks to continued success.
The team, based in the Wilton Centre, are welcoming applications for their Recruitment Resourcer vacancy, providing a great opportunity to develop a rewarding career in recruitment with the chance to work towards becoming a Trainee Recruitment Consultant.
NRL have supported projects and clients across Teesside for several years prior to setting up their Teesside branch in January 2022, including working on high profile renewable energy and net zero projects. As the region continues to progress regeneration plans at pace, NRL’s Teesside Divisional Manager Allan Stevenson sees the growth of his team as a great opportunity to forge a long-term career in recruitment:
“Since opening in January this year it feels like we’ve not stopped. From welcoming new clients, to getting to know our Wilton Centre neighbours and exploring how we can work collaboratively together. No day is the same, and there’s lots of different projects and initiatives we’re supporting clients with. So, once appointed, our new Recruitment Resourcer will be able to get involved in a lot of different recruitment solutions from the get go.
For anyone who’s never consider recruitment as a career option before, if you’re highly organised, like building connections with people and are a natural problem solver, then it’s a great industry to learn so many different skills.
There’s a real sense of satisfaction from helping people find the right job, working with clients to address skill shortages or develop their diversity and inclusion strategy. It’s also great to know that you’re playing your part in ensuring the region has the talent and skills to bring regeneration plans to life.”
Applications are now open for the newly established Recruitment Resourcer role to join NRL’s Teesside team.
New to recruitment?
When Sunderland Recruitment Consultant Connie Moscrop joined NRL in 2021 on the graduate trainee fast track programme, she quickly realised how rewarding she found working in recruitment.
In her first year at NRL, she embarked on several training courses and supported learning opportunities, and relished the support and mentoring from her Sunderland team colleagues.
“From my first day I knew I’d love working in the Sunderland branch team. I realised very quickly the energy in the office was infectious, with colleagues around me constantly celebrating success and motivating one another to strive for the best. Before long I noticed for the first time in my life I wasn’t dreading coming to work – I’d found a career that I really enjoyed.
A year later and I reflected on how much I’d learnt about the industry that had never previously crossed my mind. The encouragement I’ve had to progress my career has been fantastic, as well as the opportunities I’ve been given. Recruitment is all about being a good communicator, so I’ve forged some fantastic relationships, and it’s really rewarding when a client calls to show their appreciation, or a candidate takes to Trustpilot to say how much I’ve helped them.”
