Multitask Personnel, the Rotherham based specialist recruitment partner, are continuing their growth phase with an internal promotion and a new recruit, as the business comes out of the lockdown period in a stronger position than ever.
As the recruitment market starts to show signs of recovery, the demand for temporary, contract and permanent positions has increased as many of the sectors Multitask operate in are opening up for business once again.
During the early stages of the lockdown period, Managing Director, Claire Lee used the time to review the wider activities of the business, re-structuring the roles of existing staff to ensure they were focused on the right areas to allow for future business growth, with staff split into teams to focus primarily on client management and business development.
Claire Lee comments: “Our new structure seems to have worked really well and played to the strengths of the individuals in the team. As we start to get even busier, we clearly need to keep developing this new structure and resource, not only to ensure it continues, but also to make sure no-one in the team is put under too much pressure.
“After careful thought and new forecasts, it was clear the best course of action would be to promote from within, and to recruit new faces into the team. So, we’re delighted to announce that from 1st September 2020, Beth Childs has accepted a promotion into a Senior Recruiter role in our technical department. Beth will be responsible for managing client relationships, increasing the candidate database and ensuring the technical team hit the annual forecast.
“In addition to Beth’s promotion, we have also set on Shauna Towey, technical Recruiter to work alongside Beth and the Technical team. Shauna brings over two years of experience in trade recruitment and will be a vital addition to the team. We would like to wish both team members every success with their new roles at Multitask Personnel.”

Beth Childs, new Senior Technical Recruiter at Multitask Personnel adds: “I’m delighted to progress into a senior role and be given the chance to develop the Technical recruitment division along with Shauna. I have been with Multitask since 2016, starting out in an administrator role before working my way up as a recruitment consultant, so it’s a fantastic feeling to be given a division of my own to run.
“I’m so grateful to Claire and the team for their support and advice over the past few years that have enabled me to progress within the business.”

Shauna Towey, Technical Recruiter at Multitask Personnel comments on her appointment: “I am excited and grateful to be given the opportunity to work alongside Beth, growing the Technical division, after a busy couple of weeks I feel like I have settled nicely into the team and am excited to see what the future brings at Multitask.”
Claire Lee concludes: “We’re building a fantastic team at Multitask, ensuring we have a good spread of people across all our departments. I honestly thought this year would be the toughest we ever faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but with such a fantastic, committed team, and a great client bank, it could end up being the best ever, with us in a much stronger position in the market.”
The new appointments coincide with Multitask celebrating 10 years in business in September 2020. Multitask Personnel’s Technical division helps place candidates into contract and permanent roles throughout the UK across both M&E and Building trades.
