Teem Recruitment has taken up residence in Cavendish House, in Duke Street, Barrow, from Victoria Hall in Rawlinson Street.

The firm was set up just three years ago and has gone from being a single-person operation to one which employs seven staff.

Hollie Hartley, the recruitment team leader, said that this is just the beginning.

"It is our third year and we are just looking at increasing our staff," she said.

"We have grown quite significantly.

"We have got to seven staff over three years and this is just somewhere that we can grow - the other office was not very big."

She added: "People will know we are here for the long-term."

The business is set to take on even more staff.

"We will be looking for a couple before the end of the year," said Miss Hartley.
"We are looking to double within a couple of years."

The firm specialises in offering a tailored recruitment service for around 400 clients both locally and nationally and was set up by recruitment specialist Claire Brennan.

Miss Hartley said: "We are doing really well generally with everyone and we are hoping with this base we can continue on with this."

The new office is more spacious and central and the team are keen for clients to pop in.

Unlike a lot of other recruitment companies, Teem has only charged its clients when it has delivered successful candidates who start on the job.

It also offers a quick and simple registration service for applicants and only suggests candidates who perfectly match job specifications.

It has a database of more than 6,000 candidates.

The business is also one which bucks the trend for recruitment services in another way.

Miss Hartley said: "We are quite keen to mention that recruitment is quite male-dominated and it is good for the local area that there are more women than men here. Four of the staff are women."

"We all have a lot of experience, a combined 30 years."
