A recruiter who has spent the last few years bringing workers to the UK from other ES countries has taken advantage of the UK downturn by supplying British workers to Poland.
Marc Van Ling, managing director of Nottingham based engineering recruiter Europe Solutions, told Recruiter that he been contacted by a subcontractor for Cadbury to find four pipefitters with UK experience.
“We found them quite easily. We had a big response to the advert,” said Marc, adding “it’s a bit of a role reversal”.
Marc said the company opened an office in Poland in January and had already placed UK workers into contracts there. “I think that the Polish economy will do better than the UK as it is less exposed to the financial markets,” he added.
