Juice Recruitment launches in Swindon
On Thursday September 14, Juice Recruitment hosted their Swindon launch party. The evening was held at The Old Bank in Old Town, Swindon and guests enjoyed dancing, drinks and Italian nibbles from Marco Pierre White’s famous Bardolino.
The opening of the Swindon office situated in Kingston House, Lydiard Fields, brings the total number of Juice Recruitment branches to five. The firm’s head office is in Bath with further offices in Bristol, Cheltenham and Trowbridge.
Managing Director of Juice Recruitment, Emma Summers said: “At Juice we have many fantastic and loyal clients in and around Swindon and it has become fundamental for us to have a firm base in the town.”
The Swindon office opened for business at the end of August under the management of James Lovejoy. Emma added: “James brings a wealth of recruitment knowledge and experience gained in the Wiltshire recruitment market and commercial sectors. It’s an exciting time for James to join the firm, as the Swindon opening will see Juice grow further into the Wiltshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire markets.”
Commenting on his new role James said: “I have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and excitement organisations have shown with regards to Juice’s launch into the Swindon market. Juice’s offering is so unique and this is demonstrated in the candidates we provide and the service we deliver. I am really looking forward to expanding Juice’s strong ethos and culture in Swindon.”

Full Employment Intensifies Skills Challenge for Employers
Juice reads with interest, Recruitment & Employment Confederation chief executive Kevin Green's comments on the publication of labour market statistics by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which shows that the employment rate reached 75.3 per cent in the three months to July, the highest level since records began in 1971.
“Businesses continue to hire despite economic and political uncertainty. The fact that 379,000 more people are in jobs compared to a year ago is great news.“However, inflation is increasing and real wages are failing to keep up, so many people will be feeling a pay squeeze. Our data suggests that in many areas of the jobs market employers are offering more money to new recruits in order to secure people with the skills they need. This is a response to the tightening labour market and skills shortages which are affecting many different sectors, from engineering to food production.
“With unemployment now at 4.3 per cent it’s going to get even harder for employers to fill jobs. There are just 1.9 unemployed people for every vacancy. This challenge is being exacerbated by a fall in net migration from the EU. The idea that there are enough people in the UK ready and willing to take the jobs available is unrealistic.
“Businesses can only grow if they have access to the people and skills they need. It is essential that the government recognises this by developing an evidence-based immigration system that will support the economy.” Click here to learn more!
