Growing recruitment

Councillor Allen said: “We must also remember that the domestic UK economy has been relatively stable compared with France, Spain, Italy and Greece – which may account for the growing recruitment numbers into our workforce.
“I’m looking to the excellent businesses across our area to help our younger people into work by using apprenticeship subsidies to improve their skills. I’d also urge them to hire in experienced administrative staff to help expansion and retrain them too.

“With the Exeter Science Park developing and land for expansion coming available in our proposed Local Plan, there is a special future for businesses in our outstanding environment and community”.
