First Choice Recruitment is celebrating after reaching a key milestone – 25 years in business.
Launched by Andy Turner and Anne Lockwood in 1993, the business has since become the longest standing independent agency in Wakefield, supporting thousands of people to find employment across a diverse range of sectors including manufacturing, retail, hospitality and leisure.
The team of eight, based in the centre of Wakefield, work with a range of clients including leading blue-chip companies, SME’s and ‘one-man bands’ to meet with their recruitment needs and find the candidates that are right for each role.
Andy Turner said: “Turning 25 is a big deal. Times have changed, there is no doubt about it, but we are very pleased to be one of the longest serving independent agencies in the Yorkshire region. Very few organisations can say that they have been around a quarter of a century and that they still love what they do!
“We have so many stories to share and that’s what makes our day job so rewarding. Knowing you have made a difference to someone’s life and that you have helped them to reach their potential is a great feeling. It’s about building relationships and offering a personal service and that’s what we have always been about.”
