Skilled workers are back in demand thanks to major building works in the South West.

Weymouth-based Frontline Recruitment currently has record numbers of vacancies all over Dorset waiting to be filled.

Despite this, recruitment boss Peter Brown says the company has been forced to look outside of the county for the right people.

"We've found that workers, especially in the construction industry, are now picking and choosing where they work and looking for higher pay rates and long runs of work, which means we're having to look outside the area to find people with the right skill sets.

"Many companies are willing to train people who show the right attitude and willingness to learn. With this in mind, we'd urge people looking for a change of career and who have transferrable skills to get in touch to take advantage of this high demand."

Careers specialists Frontline Recruitment is celebrating its third anniversary and has had its best start to a year since it first opened in 2012, with profits are up by 38% on 2014.

Peter added: "The figures from the first few months of the year have come about because we're using our knowledge of the local market to actively create jobs for people - be they on a temporary or permanent basis. We look forward to hearing from jobseekers from across Dorset who want to boost their earning power."
