Manufacturing jobs on the increase

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has today reported a 1.4% increase in output for the first quarter in Manufacturing giving a boost for temporary and permanent Jobs in this sector.

The principle drivers for this increase in output came from plastics and rubber which grew by an impressive 7.4% over the quarter.

This area was closely followed by Tobacco, Food, Beverages and Machinery & Equipment.

The BBC Website quotes Martin Beck, senior economic adviser to the EY ITEM Club, as saying :

“The ‘march of the makers’ continues.”

He noted that given recent upbeat manufacturing surveys in April, the second quarter of the year seemed “set fair for further strong growth in the manufacturing sector”.

City Centre Recruitment with offices in Yeovil, Weymouth, Bournemouth and Southampton operate a very successful Engineering and Industrial Division spread across the counties of Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire. Nick Graff, Business Development Manager for City Centre Recruitment in West Dorset and Somerset commented on the figures;

These figures confirm what we at City Centre have been seeing over the past 6 months in the Engineering and Manufacturing Job Sector. Our clients operating in these sectors in all locations we recruit in are recruiting, and recruiting hard. We are currently looking for temp and perm candidates for a variety of jobs from both our Yeovil and Weymouth office which I look after. All my clients are saying they expect demand for the variety of products they provide to at least stay the same, if not increase, and some significantly increase, over the short to medium term. I dont think any business dares think, or at least voice their opinion on anything further than this in light of the recent recession.

My job now is to find the very best candidates for these jobs and sometimes this means going further afield that just Somerset or Dorset. We live in the most beautiful part of the UK and it is possible to have a dream job coupled with a dream place to live.

Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire have a very strong Manufacturing and Engineering industry focused around a variety of industries, in particular aerospace and precision engineering. There are pockets of very specialised companies throughout the counties for example, Bridport in the South West of Dorset, is one of the worlds centres for net making. The companies based in this small Dorset town make netting for a variety of different sectors including military, fishing, sporting and search & rescue.

This economic optimism mirrors the latest reports by the Western Gazette based in Yeovil, showing the Uk economy growing by 0.8% as a whole.
