Vital Recruitment plans Christmas treat for one lucky worker

Working at Christmas can be miserable but one Peterborough-based recruiter is planning to make it a memorable occasion for one lucky worker this year.

Vital Recruitment, with an office in Kings Lynn, will be offering one of its foreign workers, who has to work on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the chance to win a free flight home in January.

Mark Taylor, Vital’s commercial director, said the recruiter, with offices in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, wanted to do something special this year for someone stuck far away from home.

“Many of these workers cover extremely busy shifts, often missing time spent with loved ones,” said Taylor. “We wanted to show our gratitude and thank them for all their hard work.”
