Encore Personnel ramps up recruitment for Pets at Home

Pet supplies retailer Pets at Home is ramping up recruitment for its training academy in 2019.

In a statement released today, recruitment agency Encore Personnel, which has an onsite team hiring and supports agency workers at Pets at Home, revealed it will enhance the training programme further by training up to 10 new recruits each month.

The Academy, which has been up and running for four months, prepares those who have had years of difficulty finding a job by equipping them with the skills to perform well in interviews and the necessary training to work for potential experience at Pets at Home.

A total of 35 people have gone through the training programme, with 15 recruits receiving employment as agency staff at Pets at Home’s national distribution centre in Stoke on Trent. 

Encore Personnel, which launched the academy in partnership with the job centre to tackle unemployment issues, provides a two-week warehousing course with Dudley College, covering key skills such as manual handling to improve performance levels.
