Kemp Recruitment celebrates 13th Birthday with new office in Bournemouth Town Centre

by | May 2, 2023

Due to rapid growth, Kemp Recruitment is extremely pleased to announce relocation to their newly refurbished offices in Bournemouth town centre.

The leading specialist in Commercial Vehicle Recruitment celebrated their official ‘office warming’ on 28th April 2023, with staff revelling in the remarkable success the Kemp Recruitment team has achieved over the past few years – despite the challenges posed by the Covid19 pandemic. The move coincided with Kemp Recruitment’s 13th anniversary!

The exciting move comes after acquisition of the office space in the latter half of 2022. And, since purchasing, Mark Kemp (Managing Director) has completely redesigned and renovated the three-storey office to suit the purpose and feel of the business, with the décor reflecting the stunning rebrand that Kemp Recruitment underwent in 2020.

“We are thrilled to see our hard work pay off with such impressive financial growth and team expansion,” said Mark Kemp, Managing Director. “Our team has worked tirelessly to provide outstanding recruitment services to our clients, and this growth is a reflection of our dedication and commitment to excellence.”

Founded by Mark in 2010, Kemp Recruitment has just reached the 13-year milestone. The business has gone from strength to strength in the last decade – already significantly outgrowing (by four-fold) the 10-employee hurdle that many recruitment companies fail to ever reach. Their continued success is a testament to their commitment to providing exceptional service to clients, along with building a talented and dedicated team.

The move will also serve as a real boost to Bournemouth town centre, after filling the vacant building and increasing footfall in the area for nearby businesses. The once empty space on Old Christchurch Road has now welcomed 40 Kemp Recruitment staff and is set to accommodate a further 25 new team members shortly.

“Kemp Recruitment is currently on the lookout for new talent as we continue to expand our team and services. We remain committed to providing exceptional recruitment solutions to our clients and look forward to continuing our growth and success in the years to come.” Sam Paterson-Crofts, Operations Director
