Ongo Recruitment launches

We are launching Ongo Recruitment as the new name for Crosby Employment.

In 2014, Crosby Employment Bureau joined Ongo. Both companies have shared values and a purpose which is to support people. The move came as part of the company’s continual growth and now the time is right to rebrand as Ongo Recruitment.

Ongo Recruitment is an agency with a social purpose. All profit madeis invested back into local homes and communities as part of our commitment to supporting North Lincolnshire.

Ongo Recruitment has a specialist team to focus on employment support and getting the people of North Lincolnshire work ready. They can secure volunteer placements to offer work experience, assist with job applications and CV writing as well as supporting with interview preparation.

Jan Williams, Head of Community Investment at Ongo, said: “Crosby Employment has gained a strong positive reputation over the 13 years it has been running, and Ongo aims to build on this reputation in the future.

“Since being part of the Ongo group, our recruitment and training agency has grown and we’ve been able to expand in the different services we can offer along with the sectors we can now recruit for.”

The rebrand will be launched on 1 November.

“This is a very exciting time for us, and the team can’t wait to launch as Ongo Recruitment. Ongo has such a strong reputation locally and we believe this will help us to grow our business even further and be able to support more people in the community,” added Jan.

Andy Orrey, Chief Executive, said: “One of our commitments is to support our tenants into work and training, so having our own in house recruitment agency is of huge benefit. The team’s expertise in recruitment and training has supported over 1,000 of our tenants and North Lincolnshire residents since they joined the group.

Ongo Recruitment is now looking to partner with local businesses to help them recruit temporary and permanent staff and apprentices.

“Ongo Recruitment is just one part of a larger, long term plan of growth for the group, as we look to increase our commercial services over the coming years,” Andy Orrey added.

“As well as a recruitment agency and, of course our housing association Ongo Homes, we also have a well established roofing company – Ashbridge Roofing and further exciting plans for growth in the future.”
