There has been double cause for celebration in the Wisbech Horsefair Shopping Centre.

Recruitment agency The Workshop is marking 16 years of success in the town shopping centre by expanding to its neighbouring unit – meaning the Horsefair is now at its maximum occupancy.

Owner of The Workshop, Ruth Whitehurst says expanding will help the company go from strength-to-strength. She said: “I’m very pleased with our new offices; they are so bright and welcoming – it’s a far better environment for us to do business from. We aim to support all of the local professional staffing companies and clients. This extension will help us to achieve that.”

Centre manager of the Horsefair, Kevin Smith, said: “I’ve worked closely with Ruth since she first came to the Horsefair in 2000. I’ve seen how hard she and her team have worked over the years so I’m very pleased for them to be expanding the business.

“Their new office looks fantastic and I’m sure it will help them fill the numerous temporary and permanent positions that they constantly have available. A big well done to them.”
