Page Personnel recruitment in Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes is one of the success stories of the UK government's 'new towns' experiment. It was created in 1967 in a rural area with a total population of 45,000 people. By 2011 it had passed its initial target of 250,000 residents, with a workforce of over 200,000 people employed in jobs in Milton Keynes and its suburbs.
Page Personnel work to continue the town's prosperity by sourcing local talent and placing those individuals into jobs with Milton Keynes employers. We support candidates to improve their CV and strengthen their application, as well as collaborating with clients to recruit the best applicants into permanent, contract, temporary and remote jobs.
Modern-day Milton Keynes is known for its American-style grid layout of roads, with different parts of the town often containing residential and commercial premises to reduce the need to commute. Roads are labelled V or H, for Vertical and Horizontal, and typically meet at roundabouts to encourage free-flowing traffic, rather than at traffic-light-controlled junctions. Cyclists and pedestrians are also given their own uninterrupted routes around the town, in the form of the Redways, which pass beneath bridges that carry the roads overhead rather than crossing them directly.
Recruitment advice from Page Personnel
Page Personnel play an important role in supporting local employers in the search for local talent. ONS figures show local labour demand of 200,000 jobs in Milton Keynes in total, yet the working-age population is only 170,000. This means there is considerable competition for the most highly skilled individuals and a need to look to remote workers and commuters if talent is unavailable in the town itself.
Our team works hard to recruit for jobs in Milton Keynes and can also source candidates from across Buckinghamshire who are able to commute or work from home. For candidates, the ratio can be a valuable negotiating tool when applying for skilled jobs. You may find our recruitment advice, news updates and expert insights useful:
