Recruitment firm opens at Sports Village

A NEW recruitment and headhunting agency has become the latest business to move into the Leigh Sports Village.

Know How Recruitment, which also includes the brands Clever Recruit and CV Know How, will move into a new 700 square foot office in the stadium’s main stand in December.

The company has been created by splitting agency Discover Retail, which is currently based in Bolton, into two, with half the operation moving to Leigh and half to Clitheroe.

Know How will begin with four of its current staff moving into the new premises, but hopes to recruit and expand from early next year, creating around 10 new jobs in the Wigan and Leigh area. Their services include headhunting high-level managers for the retail, hospitality and catering sector, drawing up candidate lists for companies advertising job vacancies across the country under the brand Clever Recruit, and CV Know How, a new online CV writing service.

Director Matthew Evans said: “I live in Astley and several of the staff who are moving with me are from Atherton and Leigh, so it made sense to start up in Leigh. The LSV is just a brilliant location, it has everything we will need.

“There’s also excellent opportunities for working in partnership with some of the other businesses and organisations using the facilities.”
