Page Personnel recruitment in Southampton
Southampton's natural geography has been the powerhouse of its economy for many years. It sits at the far north of The Solent, a stretch of water that splits Great Britain from the Isle of Wight. A quirk of The Solent's shape extends high tide over a longer period each day, allowing Southampton to cater for larger ships over more hours. The Southampton Water tidal estuary and the New Forest add to the natural beauty of the land and sea surrounding the city.
Page Personnel are proud to provide market-leading Southampton recruitment services, helping more people to live in this vibrant city and enjoy the quality of life that comes from its picturesque coastal location and proximity to seaside resorts like Bournemouth. Whether you make Southampton your home for your whole career, or just the first step along your path to greater success, our experts can help you find employment in the area.
A total student population of 40,000 people is split across two higher education institutions, the University of Southampton and Solent University. Of these, the former has the bigger intake each year and plays an important role in marine research thanks to the university's National Oceanography Centre.
