We’re back in the Office!


From 12th April the majority of our staff have returned to office working and we hope that you have experienced no disruption during the last few months.

The office is not yet open for visitors so the best way to contact us remains by email or phone. If you wish to see a consultant we can arrange a TEAMS or Skype meeting and we will continue this service for the foreseeable future.

We continue to be very busy and we are still dealing with a large number of job seekers per vacancy. Please do be patient with our recruiters and apologies if they are taking time in replying to your query. Each application deserves attention and unfortunately this can slow down our response time.

In terms of the numbers of jobs we are recruiting for, the first quarter of the year has proven to be almost identical to the same period in 2020 before the pandemic took hold. Indeed and the BBC have also reported that Britain’s jobs growth is being led by cities and towns in the North and Midlands and we have certainly experienced a similar pattern.

The latest ONS figures also point to an upsurge in payrolled employees – so the signs of a recovery are mounting and at Essential Employment will continue to do all we can to help our candidates and clients in the months ahead.
