South Tyneside firms join forces to increase client support

“In this respect, we are very keen to collaborate and work closely with fellow specialists who we feel will assist us to innovate and where there is great potential for referrals and joint marketing opportunities. Lynn Bennett Resourcing Ltd is a natural fit for us as it offers a niche service in the market.

“One of the areas we are already exploring is the gap in the market for clients requiring middle managers. They are often the unsung heroes of British industry and they play an essential role as the interface between the senior management team and the workforce. In many respects they are the glue that binds a company together, ensuring that everything runs smoothly.”

The company provides recruitment in areas including oil and gas, chemical and pharmaceuticals, energy, automotive, aerospace, electronics, FMCG, food and drink and sub-contract engineering.

Lynn Bennett, managing director at Lynn Bennett Resourcing Ltd, Newcastle, said: “Having met with Chris and the team at CDS Recruitment on a number of occasions it became clear that their company values and objectives were aligned with my own.

“Having worked in the sector for over 19 years as both an HR practitioner and HR recruiter, I fully understand the importance of human resources in shaping an organisation’s performance, and indeed how recruitment and selection has become pivotal as clients look to their workforce to offer and deliver a competitive advantage.

“It is great to see an increasing level of collaboration amongst businesses in the region. It leads to innovation, creativity and customers that feel they have received a service beyond their expectations.”
