Page Personnel recruitment in Reading
Page Personnel provide leading recruitment services in Reading, with several specialist areas of focus on sectors that are of extra significance to the town. These include disciplines such as legal, digital, human resources, finance, facilities management, sales and marketing. We also provide general recruitment consultancy for professional roles including permanent, temporary and contract positions.
Reading is the location of about 125,000 jobs according to the ONS, although the town itself has a population of working age of only 108,000. Across the built-up area surrounding Reading, the population totals almost 320,000 people, including Arborfield, Earley, Woodley, Crowthorne, Theale and Wokingham. This no longer includes Bracknell, which is now officially part of Greater London, but in 2001 before this reclassification, Reading's total population was around 370,000.
The town is home to the University of Reading, as well as a campus of the University of West London, and these together add a significant student population to the area, as well as an annual cohort of new graduates seeking employment in Reading. Page Personnel work with first-time graduates looking to enter the workforce at ground level, as well as those already in employment who are taking the next step along their career path.
Recruitment advice from Page Personnel
There is a slight excess of jobs in Reading itself, as the town has only six residents of working age for every seven employment opportunities. As such, it is essential for employers to advertise vacancies in compelling terms, and consider commuters from slightly further afield if suitable talent is not available within the town. Page Personnel can advise on the best ways to fill highly skilled roles, by sourcing qualified individuals from our candidate talent pool.
