Health and social care recruitment specialist Sanctuary Personnel has created 20 new jobs to suppport growing demand.

Sanctuary, which has increased its turnover from £41million to £61m in the last year, has also secured additional office space in Holbrook House, opposite its premises in Wykes Bishop Street, Ipswich, and close to its head office on the town’s Waterfront.

The company, which now employs more than 150 people, was recently named Recruitment Agency of the Year at the UK’s largest awards event for the recruitment industry,being recognised by judges for its “industry-leading employee engagement”.

The new jobs involve a mix of business administrator and apprenticeship roles.

“As an organisation, we look to recruit individuals based on qualities, drive and ambition rather than experience only. With this, we have a superb working community who push and support each other to achieve individual and company goals.”
