Hunter Selection Limited, Abbots Leigh

Established in Abbots Leigh in 2004 Hunter Selection now has three offices serving the South West, Midlands and Wales. The North Somerset based recruitment firm continues to go from strength to strength with the second quarter of 2012 showing a record number of permanent placements of engineers, technical and manufacturing professionals, a 22% increase on the same period in 2011.

The Abbots Leigh office covers the South West of England and is currently the leading team in the business. Regional Director, Nick Stovold puts their success down to the quality of service they offer. "There has always been a shortage of engineering talent as long as I've been in the industry. Our job is to consistently make the best candidates available to our clients at a cost and within a timescale that meets their business needs. I believe that our reputation for delivery is second to none and this reputation is absolutely fundamental to our success".

As well as the traditionally strong regional markets of Aerospace and Food & Drink, Hunter Selection has seen increased demand for Engineers in Renewable Energy, Special Purpose Machinery, Automotive and Innovative Technology much of this driven by export demand which shows no signs of diminishing in the South West.

“Being based in North Somerset has allowed us to serve the south west region very well”, says Managing Director, Russell Smith. “I was born and bred here, but the strategic advantages of the motorway network coupled with a high quality supply of staff have been essential factors in our success and subsequent growth.

"Where possible we make a real effort to use local suppliers for our products and services and have always been served well.

"I expect these local and regional commitments to go from strength to strength from our Abbots Leigh Headquarters whilst we continue to build the business nationally”

Hunter Selection plans to invest further in their South West operation and will be expanding the team and capabilities in both permanent and temporary contract recruitment in 2012/13.
