June marks the 13th year anniversary of Bond Williams Professional Recruitment and are proud to be able to report another successful year of business. Over the past 13 years we have outgrown five (yes, five) offices, expanded into 4 specialist divisions (Accounting & Finance, IT, HR and Office & Commercial) and now have close to 20 employees working in the business.
In November 2016 we were thrilled to announce our business relocation to larger, recently refurbished, new offices in the heart of Bournemouth that will allow our business to flourish over the mid to long term. The new office is on the 3rd (top) floor of Heliting House on Richmond Hill in the town centre and located in close proximity to a number of prestigious local companies, including the Nationwide Building Society HQ on the opposite side of the road.
The move enabled space for continued expansion and growth of the team with the appointment of Adam Rich to the firm’s Human Resources division as a Recruitment Consultant in December of last year. The move to new offices has also provided an impressive environment and capacity for meetings with both clients and candidates holding their workshops, confidential meetings and training days in our new boardroom.
Robert Bond, Director at Bond Williams, comments:
“The last 12 months have been full of activity and exciting developments which included strengthening our team of consultants and engaging with many new clients. The opening of our new facilities in November 2016 has been a real boost for the team as we were starting to burst at the seams a little in the older office in The Square. The new open plan office enables all our business teams to collaborate more effectively, we have state of the art interview suites, private meeting rooms and a boardroom that seats 10 comfortably. To top it all off we have a fully stocked kitchen, male and female showers (for the more energetic among us) and an excellent staff break-out area with some fabulous sea views over the town.”
Claire Bond, Director at Bond Williams, says:
“A sense of pride goes a long way and reflects the values that are important to your company and we are immensely proud of what we have achieved as a team over the past 13 years. Our business relocation was influenced by this, our old offices no longer reflected the quality of our brand and we wanted our team to be proud of their environment. The new office is largely open plan so our teams are now able to work much more collaboratively, which has already proved beneficial in our ability to place professional, high-quality staff into work with clients across the divisions.
We are also now able to offer our clients meeting room and boardroom space that was in high demand previously, so they can continue with confidential offsite interviews or if they are lacking space internally.
We are delighted to be able to be celebrating our 13th year of business in such a strong and optimistic position and as always we would like to thank all of our employees, candidates and clients for their continued support over the years.”
