Vertex Solutions International – a local specialist IT recruitment business headquartered in Hemel Hempstead were pleased to spend the afternoon with Mike Penning, MP for Hemel Hempstead and a Minister of State for Work and Pensions.
Mike was encouraged to see a thriving local business hiring consistently and Managing Director, Mark Beard emphasised that Vertex plans to continue growth locally in Hemel Hempstead as well as in Vertex’s London office. Mark commented: “Mike is a super guy – seems to be genuinely in touch with the local business community and the time we spent with him was most valuable…..Mike gave us some useful food for thought around our strategy for hiring locally”.
Vertex work with high technology Companies across Europe to ensure that they access the level of talent and skill they need in order to continue to innovate…..they are always looking for the next Google or Facebook! They however remain connected to the local community through their support of Hemel Hempstead Town Cricket Club, Hemel Hempstead School as well as encouraging all of their staff to engage in local community / charity work by offering a day a year fully paid to do this.
Mike did not seem surprised to see that Vertex were finding it a challenge to hire local talent (ironic for a recruitment business!!) due to that fact that Hemel Hempstead boasts a less than 2% unemployment rate – three times lower than the national average!
Mike also noted that the service that Vertex offers to its high technology clients across Europe may well be required closer to home here in Hemel Hempstead, as the industrial estate in Maylands avenue increasingly attracts IT and Technology businesses such as UTC aerospace and FFEI.
Vertex Solutions continue to grow here in Hemel Hempstead and Mark Beard suggested that anyone interested in a “potentially challenging and highly rewarding” career in recruitment can find out more through the Vertex web page or facebook page (www.vertex-solutions.co.uk / https://www.facebook.com/VertexSolutionsInternational)
