Berry Recruits

New positions taken in Berry Recruitment following successful year.

Berry Recruitment has appointed Rebecca Hilling as regional manager for the South West – overseeing branches in Cornwall, Devon and Wales. Hilling is an experienced consultant and has been with the group since it took over the company she worked for in 2010. She oversaw the branch’s move from Falmouth to Truro and its expansion to cover the whole of Cornwall.

After a year of lockdowns and Covid restrictions in which the business prospered by supplying temporary workers across numerous sectors, she has been promoted. Succeeding her in Truro is Katy Thomas who has worked her way up the branch after starting as a resource consultant. Ella Arnold, who has eight years in recruitment management, has been appointed to take on the Exeter branch.

“My aim is to develop the three branches and add staff as we groe,” said Hilling. “Hopefully we will then be able to launch new branches and really establish ourselves across the South West and South Wales.

“We recruit mainly temporary workers for driving jobs, warehouse, factory and cleaning roles as well as office-based jobs, construction, hospitality and catering with some tech and IT roles too. Permanent placements have also done well, especially in the office and professional sectors.

“We had to adapt massively throughout the pandemic,” she admits, “but our consultants have been superb throughout and the group has given us huge support, both practical and in terms of positivity.”

Lee Gamble, managing director of Berry Recruitment, said: “Rebecca has shown over the last decade how capable she is, moving from a consultant role to a managerial role. When we were looking for someone to oversee the South West, Rebecca was the best choice.

“We have great teams in our three branches and I’m confident that we will see continued growth.”
