Lynn Battram


Lynn has been in the recruitment industry since 1983, initially working as a temporary PA/Administrator herself which was the ideal starting block for setting up her own company in 1986. “If you are going to be involved in any business, you can’t get much better than doing the job yourself – when I’m looking for staff for our clients I feel that my experience has given me a real insight to what’s expected from temporary staff and what it’s like to walk into a new situation and then the feeling of accomplishment when you manage to help out.”

Over the years a lot of things have changed in the recruitment industry. Agencies have started up and, just as quickly, disappeared. Due to the economic ups and downs, some of the initial clients are no longer trading but others are going strong and continue to use Workforce Unlimited to help with their staffing shortfalls. Over time we have built up really good working relationships with old and new clients, listening to their requirements and often helping with staffing shortfalls at short notice and that’s important – getting it right makes all the difference when things are ‘on the line’!

I thoroughly enjoy assisting people in their search for employment as well as helping local companies find the right people for their vacancies. Having a great team of Recruitment Consultants here at Workforce Unlimited helps us to ensure both companies and candidates are well looked after and I’m proud to head such a successful, well established local company”
