Projected growth for 2017

So 2017 started with a bang, the Brexit bang.  All the scaremongering is a thing of the past.

At MAS we have seen growth in excess of 30% over the last 12 months.  This pattern has been mainly as a result of new and dormant client accounts, with jobs coming in on an almost weekly basis with requests for support in both theTemporary and Permanent jobs sector.

In order to deliver results, we have invested in our new website which was designed by our management team having spent some time looking at how job seekers prefer quick and easy access to available jobs, the online job boards process and information needs.

Quite simply, a simple and direct approach has been applied in order to stimulate candidate interest as well as ensure a constant candidate flow is available with skilled workers in short supply, this has been essential to our ongoing success.

Additional investments in Jobs boards, social media and internal marketing operations are constantly being reviewed and re-directed if necessary, to maintain interest and attraction. As a people business, it's imperative we never lose sight of what the people want.  Quality assignments, progressive career options, direct and approachable services to the jobs market and reward and appreciation.

Well , Thank You for your continued confidence in MAS and we look forward to working with you all in 2018 and beyond.

Working to keep you working since 1989
