Recruitment company rehires staff made redundant in recession

A travel recruitment company is rehiring staff it was forced to make redundant at the peak of the recession.

C&M Recruitment business development director Barbara Kolosinska said the company was forced to make 10 members of staff redundant, starting in October 2008, with the bulk of redundancies being made between January and April 2009.

However, with an upturn in the market she said the company has already re-employed two former members of staff. One is due to start next week, with one returning in November 2009.

The company is in talks with some of the other staff it made redundant and hopes to bring more back on board.

Kolosinska said: “It is absolutely fantastic. It is a positive message that our staff want to come back to us as it is imperative that when you make redundancies that they are managed properly as it’s not personal, it’s business.”

She said the recruitment company first saw an upswing in the market last August, which had been sustained ever since.
