Specialist construction and engineering recruitment agency Project Resource is to open in Bury St Edmunds on Monday (25).
It is the company’s fifth office. It said it chose Bury as a central location for the East of England.
It will start with a team of four but plans to double by the end of the year.
The firm has offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Reading.
Anthony Quinn, former regional director of Hays recruitment will be in charge of the new office.
He has 15 years of experience in construction recruitment.
“We have made a very considered strategic decision to provide the specialist local services that businesses struggle to find in the current recruitment market,” he said.
“Our main aim at Bury St Edmunds will be to deliver a well-tailored and dedicated recruitment service to customers throughout the East of England.
“Businesses that we talk to think that it is a shame more recruiters aren’t more committed to a local office strategy.
“Clients and candidates really like dealing face to face with local recruiters but they also want a really high quality of service.
“This, along with honest, detailed advice, will be the cornerstone of our working ethos.
“Another advantage we offer to clients is our specialist focus on recruiting white collar professionals in our key sectors, such as construction and infrastructure.
“This means that we fully understand clients’ requirements and can access a really strong network of exceptional candidates.
“Nearly all agencies locally are generalists and cannot offer the comprehensive range of recruitment solutions available at Project Resource.”
In October 2012, Project Resource celebrated its tenth anniversary.
The business originally focused on commercial and quantity surveying and planners and project controllers, and now employs 45 staff.
