“The hard work put in by our staff during the tough years of the recession has laid a solid foundation that we are now building on.
“We are aiming to expand our reach in professional and managerial level roles, while continuing to grow our core, existing business.
“With the economy looking up we are seeing growth in the number of jobs, both permanent and temporary, in all sectors right across the country.
