Star Employment Services & MNA Recruitment Merge To Offer One Stop Shop For Recruitment

A leading regional publisher has combined its comprehensive job offers under one brand to offer tailored recruitment packages.

Star Employment Services, from the Midland News Association, will be the all-encompassing brand for jobs and will include the previous MNA Recruitment offering.

Situated in the Express & Star offices in Wolverhampton, the agency services are now streamlined to be a one stop shop offer for all recruitment needs, but with a personal approach.

Star Employment is promoting both fixed fee recruitment packages or a bespoke managed service, taking the hard work out of recruitment. The expert team will handpick applicants, providing the best qualified candidates, as well as getting a vacancy noticed across different platforms.

Focus can be made on print and online, and will use both the employment agency and smart search tools. Jobs will appear on the Shropshire Star and Express & Star websites, plus daily newspapers, as well as magazines, weekly editions and the Star Employment jobs board.

Staff at the agency have also attained their gold audited status with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).

Currently, there are more than 25,000 agencies in the UK and Star Employment are one of only 51 agencies to have the gold audit status. The audit provides confirmation that the agency is conducting its business ethically, in accordance with the legal requirements and with the REC code.

Star Employment Services operations manager Kylee Russon said: “Star Employment Services definitely do take the hard work out of recruitment.

“A business will send our expert team a vacancy. We will then turn it into an attractive job advert, optimised to get your vacancy noticed in print and online to find your ideal candidate.

“We’ll save you time by using the latest recruitment technology to advertise your vacancy across all major job boards. Your job will  also be promoted on social media and our own local job boards.”

A new September offer is being launched, with the agency promising three qualified candidates for £475. This ties into a campaign of outdoor and radio advertising which is being used to spread the word. Find out more about this offer here.

Recruitment director Lee Smith said: “Unlike many agencies we won’t just promote your vacancy. Instead of sending you the unfiltered applications to trawl through, we shortlist the applicants and provide you with the qualified candidates.

“We are looking forward to putting our streamlined services and bespoke packages into practice.”

Star Employment Services uses the slogan ‘Spend less. Save Time. Hire Better.’

The agency, which was launched in January 2013, is owned by the Midland News Association, publisher of the Express & Star and Shropshire Star.
