A WESTON-BASED recruitment firm is celebrating its third year in business and has welcomed a visit from the town’s MP, John Penrose, to mark its success.

The founders of GBRS, Gary Higgins and Ben Milson, got the chance to quiz the politician on some issues facing the town.

The company focuses on recruitment within the construction industry and Mr Higgins said: “It was great to welcome John to the offices and discuss the issues affecting the construction industry and our local town and find out about what plans the Government has to alleviate these problems.”

Ben Milson said: “The construction industry has huge growth and earning potential and we should be encouraging young people to forge a career in the industry.”

In three years GBRS has more than doubled its workforce and now has a turnover just shy of £2.5million a year.
