The opening of a new recruitment agency in Redditch is a “sign the town’s economy is bouncing back” Rachel has said following a visit.

Last Friday (June 25th), the town’s MP was joined on a visit to Quest Employment with Emma Marshall, Borough Councillor for Greenlands and County Councillor for Arrow Valley West.

Rachel and Emma met with Izabela Cooper, the branch manager of the recruitment agency which has opened at the Excalibur Serviced Office in Greenlands.

During their visit, Rachel and Emma heard about the hundreds of jobs currently available and the pent-up demand in the local jobs market.

Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch, said:

“A new recruitment agency opening up in Redditch is a great sign that our town’s economy will bounce back from the impact of the pandemic.

“Sadly, people have lost their job during the pandemic, but Redditch’s unemployment rate has consistently remained lower than the national average.

“With this recruitment agency opening, clearly local businesses are looking to recruit, and with Amazon’s Fulfilment Centre due to open this year, hundreds of jobs will be available for local residents to apply for.”

Emma Marshall, Borough Councillor for Greenlands and County Councillor for Arrow Valley West, said:

“It’s fantastic to see a new business opening up in Greenlands, and it was great to hear from Izabela about the pent-up demand in the jobs markets.”
