Encore Celebrates 14 Years In Telford, And It’s Just The Beginning

Opening in January 2004, Midlands based Recruitment Agency, Encore Personnel are delighted with the 14th anniversary of their Telford Branch

Since opening their doors, they had a vision to become the leading supplier of blue collar temporary workers within Telford & the surround areas. Now 14 years down the line, they have supplied over 10,000 workers to over 400 companies and continue to build on their ever-growing success.

Encore Telford employs over 350 temporary staff per week covering the Telford, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton areas for businesses in a multitude of sectors, namely production, manufacturing, food production and warehouse/distribution.

Jon Morris, Branch Manager commented, “Our Telford office has had some great successes over the past 14 years. During my 3 years with the company I’m pleased to report that success has continued including some record breaking weeks in 2017.

This has only been possible due to the hard work, commitment and professionalism of my team, our workers and our working relationships with our clients.

As a Business, we have continued to help many people to gain employment and in many cases provided permanent work opportunities. I’m very honoured to be part of the continued success of the Encore Telford Branch and to remain as a premier supplier of temporary labourer in Telford and surrounding areas for years to come.”

Internally Encore employs 20 staff within the Telford location, which is 20% growth on the previous year to cover the demands on our business. They have also added 2 apprentices to their ranks.

Jon Morris Commented, “Seeing the business was growing, we hired a Resource apprentice to help cover the demands of our customers. As resourcing staff is as challenging as ever due to skills shortages and the initial impact from Brexit, Encore have taken steps across the business to support staff resourcing, mainly through investments such as hiring Resource specialists within our business.

The value this adds to the business is measured in the short, medium and long term. The long-term goal is to develop our budding apprentice into an Account Manager over the coming years. The onboarding and development of apprentices is key – we take time for them to learn our business from top to bottom, whilst developing the individual’s skill sets and meeting the aspirations of all.

Encore have outlined the biggest challenge over the next 2 years is the uncertainty over Brexit, with its potential impact, also the well documented challenges in terms of skill shortages and the decreasing unemployment levels within our local area and the country as a whole.

However, Encore have invested within the business to help combat these issues and aides our delivery to provide a quality service to our customers and workers.

Maddy O’Donnell, Area Manager commented “It only seems like yesterday that myself along with directors Chris and Ian were hammering the phones introducing Encore to Telford. Who would have thought that we would of has so much success from a relatively small Geographical area. Our vision was for Telford to be one of the leading agencies in the area, which I believe we have achieved. Not only that, I’m proud that we are also considered as one of the most profitable branches within the Encore Family.
