Andersplus rebrands as Fresh Horticultural Careers

Andersplus has rebranded to reflect the need for fresh approaches to sector skills shortages, the recruitment agency has said.

After nearly 17 years as Andersplus "we felt it was the right time to re position ourselves in the market place and to better reflect the service we provide". 

The change will take place from 6 November and the company added: "With increased social and economic pressures facing all business, we are having to respond to different demands and expectations within the Industry and to become more resourceful in solving recruitment requirements and issues.

"Our new name signals our belief that it is time to take a fresh approach in tackling the skills shortage within the industry and to help us identify and develop new directions in our service.

"Throughout the coming year we will be concentrating on finding fresh ways to source candidates at all levels. We will be working with our clients and professional bodies to broaden the appeal of a career in horticulture, particularly amongst young people.

"Our aim is to spend more time in the field, going to schools colleges and job fairs and with industry professionals to better meet the expectations of clients and candidates.

"Above all we see ourselves as recruitment mentors for clients and candidates alike, helping to identify and retain the best people for this diverse, challenging and very rewarding industry."
