Experts in their fields - Keeping it local

As Europe’s 20th fastest growing business, serving 97,000 customers and sending up to 25 million text messages per month, Worcestershire business Textlocal takes the recruitment of its growing team very seriously.

Now employing 20 staff, and based on the Malvern Hills Science Park, Textlocal requires experts in the IT field to help service its clients and grow the business.  And as the largest provider of mobile messaging services for any business, charity or community group in the UK, Textlocal’s philosophy is to exceed the expectations of its customers.   

In order to help meet these objectives, and get the best people for the job, multi award-winning Textlocal chooses Hewett Recruitment in Worcester and Kidderminster for its recruitment services.

Textlocal’s Chief Executive and Founder, Alastair Shortland has been using Hewett Recruitment for 4 years and admires their ability to really understand his business.  “I need experts in my field, but the Hewett team are experts in their field, so they help me find exceptional candidates,” Alastair says.  “Hewett Recruitment stand out over and above any other recruitment agency I’ve used.  They undertake in-depth research and find me top notch candidates, which saves me huge time in the recruitment process and provides the calibre of expertise Textlocal needs.  What’s more, their local ethos complements that of Textlocal:  we like to employ local people.  Indeed, I myself temped through Hewetts in past days, I even won a ‘Temp of the Month’ award from them!  It’s useful now I’m recruiting as the client company to have had the experience of dealing with Hewett Recruitment too as a candidate,” Alastair smiles.

To date, Hewett has provided Textlocal with IT specialists from developers to senior managers.
