Looking For
Industrial Staff?

One Step Recruitment’s largest department is our Industrial division – with consultants in every branch, we’ve been supporting our county’s manufacturing, warehousing, factory, production, building and supply businesses for nearly 20 years.

We are award winning consultants in the Industrial sector: Adriana, our Chard Branch Manager, has won national recruiting awards for her candidate management and we’ve maintained and grown our Industrial client base to cover the whole of the South West.

However, our strengths lie in our locality and our relationships – like every division at One Step, we work on quality over quantity. Industrial staff are hard to find, and the changing demands of the work place can make for difficult hiring. But we’re the county’s leading independent recruiter for a reason, and our speedy service and wide industry knowledge stand us in prime stead to help your company.

Seeking Industrial Staff?

All 3 of our branches have Industrial consultants, focused entirely on recruiting in your sector. Our rates are reasonable, and based on a “no placement, no fee” basis.

As we operate independently, we have our own accounts team, which mean our staffing service is “on payroll”, entirely in-house and designed to make hiring staff quick and easy.

Our database of candidates is now 15,000 deep and growing. With 20 years of recruiting under our belt, we have hundreds of active Industrial job seekers ready to work with short notice.

Looking for Industrial work?

One Step have been working in the Industrial sector for 2 decades – our consultants have flexible, temporary and full time permanent roles on offer and Somerset is booming in manufacturing. There has never been a better time to job hunt for Industrial jobs in Somerset, so get in touch if you want to know more!
