Supertemps come to the rescue of MCM workers

A North Wales recruitment agency has said it is confident it will help workers affected by the closure of Marco Cable Management’s factory in Llangefni find new jobs.

In a statement this morning, Supertemps reveals its Bangor office (pictured) is helping the affected workers following MCM’s announcement back in October that it was to shut down its Anglesey site, leaving 40 people to either relocate to West Bromwich or find work elsewhere.

Supertemps, which has offices in Bangor, Colwyn Bay and at M-Sparc in Gaerwen, already had an existing relationship with MCM and has placed several employees there. Over the Christmas period, consultants from Supertemps were on hand to attend employee fairs and workshops, help staff search for alternative roles, provide interview and CV tips, and offer advice.

Supertemps business manager Vicki Armstrong-Smith, based at the new Bangor office, hopes the recruiter will be able to source suitable positions for those still searching for employment.

“It is always devastating when any job is lost, let alone so many at one of the island’s biggest firms,” she said. “The majority were not in a position to uproot their lives and move to the Midlands, so we are on hand to help these candidates into new jobs, on a temporary or permanent basis.

“There are opportunities out there on Anglesey and across Gwynedd into Conwy, so we will be here if they need us and wish them the best of luck for the future.”

In the statement, MCM HR manager Nicola Jones, who said the factory will be empty from February onwards, said Supertemps – and its IT, executive and engineering brand S2 Recruitment – had been hugely supportive.

“As this has been a phased closure, we are hopeful, with the help of Supertemps, the Job Centre and the local authority, that the staff will find alternative employment as soon as possible,” she added.
