Jobs In Dorset – Update

City Centre are pleased to announce a sharp uplift in the number of newly placed vacancies and  jobs in Dorset over the past week. Whilst January has seen a steady start across Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset for newly created jobs, February has seen a marked upward trend.

The outlook for the retail sector appears to still be a challenging one with the news that Blockbuster in Weymouth and Millets in Dorchester are set to close  Speaking in the Daily Echo, Incoming president of the Weymouth Chamber of Commerce Mark Blunden said the closure could be as much to do with a change in society’s habits as a downturn in the economy.

“I think we are all guilty of using online services for DVD rentals, and it is perhaps a demographic reason why the Weymouth store is closing and the Bridport store is staying open for now, because maybe people are more likely to download.” But he said more could be done to support businesses, citing parking as one of the issues in the town centre that is failing to help boost the economy for local independant traders.

On a positive note for Dorset jobseekers however a number of sectors continue to show strong growth.

In particular the manufacturing and engineering sectors have a shown a sharp increase in demand for skilled and semi-skilled staff in Dorset over the past few weeks, with City Centre taking on an additional 23 jobs across its 4 offices in the past week alone

If you are a skilled or semi skilled engineer looking for work in Dorset, Hampshire or Somerset, or know of someone that is, please ask them to contact their local City Centre office to discuss a wide range of contract jobs and permanent jobs that we are currently recruiting for.
