Elizabeth's Embroidery is a great example of a local business which provides employment opportunities for long-term unemployed jobseekers.

Elizabeth’s Embroidery is a family run company in full growth and expansion in and around Stockton, where the family originally started the business in their own home. With a production unit in town and owning various shops in the area, Elizabeth’s Embroidery is now a leading supplier of school uniforms and embroidered products with a reputable presence of over 25 years.

Lisa Halligan, one of business owners, was approached by the PeoplePlus team in Stockton to find out about the services and support they can offer with recruitment for the peak season. Lisa’s dedicated Job Coach, Keely, quickly identified the business’ needs and set out to find the right candidates for the opportunities available, ranging from customer service and warehouse assistants to quality control assistants, production assistants and a sales apprentice.

Within 6 weeks, Lisa welcomed 16 PeoplePlus jobseekers to the Elizabeth’s Embroidery family. The new employees are not only proving to be a great fit for their respective jobs but as Keely explains: “They all seem to have gelled together and there is a real sense of team spirit amongst them which is fantastic to see.”

The company is a great example of a local business which provides employment opportunities for long-term unemployed jobseekers, boosting their confidence and skill sets.

Lisa at Elizabeth’s Embroidery says:

Due to the seasonality of our business we recruit people to help every summer. This year was the first time I have used PeoplePlus and it has changed the way we are going to recruit in the future. The process is made so easy and I always have Keely on the end of the phone to discuss the people before interview and for support once they have been hired. The jobseekers are eager and willing to work and Keely has done all the hard work. I was dreading the whole recruitment process until I met PeoplePlus.

At PeoplePlus, we’re always happy to help you on your recruitment journey, dedication and professionalism being at the core of our service.
