North Wales based
recruitment marketing and support specialist JVP Group is charging forward with its growth
plans, securing a number of prestigious contracts with some of the UK’s best
loved zoos and leisure attractions.
In early 2018, JVP were appointed to support the HR team at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire with developing and managing their in-house recruitment function, with vacancies ranging from Visitor Experience roles to Animal Keepers, along with professional and office support positions.
The fast-growing business has also recently secured a contract with Longleat in Wiltshire to deliver a talent attraction strategy for over 200 recruitment advertising campaigns, for job vacancies across Longleat’s diverse portfolio of attractions.
The contract wins have been a direct result of JVP Group’s continued success supporting employers within the animal kingdom and wider leisure, tourism and hospitality sectors.
Over the past 12 months JVP has extended its comprehensive and tailored service offering, introducing a range of additional solutions focused on saving employers even more time with the recruitment process, and helping promote a professional and positive employer brand.
These recent service enhancements have proved great benefit to Twycross Zoo, with in-house recruitment support including a fully managed recruitment helpdesk, application management and assessment, along with improved talent attraction through enhanced employer brand development and extended audience reach.
Karen Clarke, Chief Operating Officer at Twycross Zoo said “Here at Twycross Zoo we have an ambitious 20-year masterplan, and to achieve this we need to attract more fantastic people to our organisation as we continue to grow.
“We engaged with JVP six months ago and already we’ve seen the huge benefits in the quality of applications, the time-saving support we’ve received, and the technology which is ensuring an efficient process for everyone.”
In addition to Twycross Zoo and Longleat, JVP has developed an impressive portfolio of high-profile clients across the UK including Arriva TrainCare, Boots Hearingcare, NSPCC, Luxfer Group and Business Wales.
Cath Harrison, Founder and Managing Director of JVP Group, said: “Whilst we support a wide range of sectors, the leisure industry and particularly the animal kingdom, is becoming a specialist area of significant growth at JVP.
“The world of HR and recruitment is constantly evolving, particularly in relation to technology, social media, and the importance of employer branding. As the landscape changes, we adapt our services to ensure our clients achieve the best results for their recruitment campaigns and in the most efficient manner.
“We’ve recently invested in the development of a fresh new website, to showcase our enhanced solutions and how we work with employers to attract the very best talent, significantly reduce the time spent on recruitment administration, and minimise their recruitment spend.”
