A RECRUITMENT firm in Huddersfield has made two key appointments as it gears up to help boost local employment figures.
Nicky Battye, who heads Fartown-based Boomerang Recruitment, has been joined by Rob Bamford as resourcer and recruiter and Liam Townsend, an apprentice IT administrator, who is helping the business develop its social media provision.
Mr Bamford was brought on board in the wake of Boomerang securing a contract to supply support workers to the Mirfield-based Hollybank Trust. His appointment underlines the firm’s growing involvement in the health and social care sector.
Mr Townsend is working on Boomerang’s presence on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Boomerang continues to operate in commercial and engineering sectors.
Said Mr Bamford: “We are keen to help get people back into employment and help the local economy grow and climb out of recession.
“The health and social care sector offers opportunities for a substantial increase in business over the next decade or so as the ‘baby boomers’ approach their later years.”
Ms Battye added: “Despite the economic climate, our business is doing well.
