PASSING ON THE RECRUITMENT BATON
A Burgess Hill recruitment specialist has welcomed a new pair of hands to oversee co-ordination between clients and candidates.
Travail Employment Group is delighted to have secured the services of Gemma Craig who lives nearby in mid Sussex and has recruitment consultancy experience.
A nationwide franchise, Travail is the French word for ‘work’. Judi Arditi formed the Burgess Hill operation, with her late husband Loni, in 2006 and it is now a highly-respected consultancy across the town and beyond.
“Within just days of joining the team, Gemma has already made an impact”, said Travail MD Judi Arditi. “She has slotted in seamlessly and already placed her first candidate.”
While welcoming Gemma to the team, the company has had to say a fond farewell to Elle Simpson who has been a tremendous asset but is moving to London. While at Travail, Elle won an award for Administrator of the Year after colleagues remarked that “clients love Elle, she has a great rapport with many of them”, and how “she thrives on deadlines and rises to the challenge on every occasion”.
In her spare time, Gemma has many interests and hobbies such as playing football for Hassocks ladies, a sport she has enjoyed since she was eight years-old. She is very much looking forward to working with the Travail team and getting to know all their clients.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
