Stafflex and HTAFC 'Get Kirklees Working'

Friday, August 7, 2015
Celebrating fifteen years in business, Stafflex has increased its sponsorship commitments with Huddersfield Town
Stafflex has teamed up with Huddersfield Town – to realise a goal of getting more people into work.
We have launched Get Kirklees Working – an initiative to help employers find the skills they need.

During the 2015/16 season, the Club and the biggest independent recruitment company in West Yorkshire will team up to deliver a recruitment drive never previously been seen in the region.

“We are extremely proud of our loyalty towards the club and in turn their commitment to supporting the community we both serve. It makes perfect sense to us that we work together to help those who need it most to find jobs as a direct result of our partnership. We have already had strategic discussions with Sean Jarvis and his commercial team to explore ways in which we can reach out to the fan base with more information about the jobs on offer in the region. We are also keen to explore ways in which we can help people search for work, prepare for interviews, and improve their CVs and lots of other useful tips and tools that will enable them to find the right job for them,” says Brian Stahelin, founder and Managing Director of Stafflex.

Brian goes on to say:
“’Get Kirklees Working’ is not just about jobseekers. We have a growing number of employers in the region who require the right staff. From highly technical manufacturers to assembly line, retail, teachers and construction jobs. Finding staff with the skills they need is an increasingly difficult challenge for all employers. Stafflex exists so that employers can focus on what they do best whilst we take away the pain of selection and recruitment. By working with us and Huddersfield Town, we can identify the needs of local employers in advance and help attract good quality candidates who already exist as part of the fan base already here on the terraces. “
Stafflex will continue to sponsor the team’s First Team shorts during the new Championship campaign as Town’s Official Recruitment Partner.

This will mark the 11th consecutive year that the Huddersfield-based company has backed ‘The Yorkshire Club’, but is a first for the coming season. Stafflex will also be the official sponsor of the Club’s Facebook page, .
More information on the ‘Get Kirklees Working’ campaign will be released in due course.

Sean explained:
“Everyone at Huddersfield Town is delighted that Stafflex has renewed its support of the Club through a commercial partnership for an amazing 11th season.
“I’m even happier to report that this represents the largest sponsorship deal Stafflex has ever committed to, so it’s great to know that the company is getting such good returns from its partnership with Huddersfield Town.
“Stafflex is one of the most forward-thinking, progressive companies we deal with and together we’re already planning lots for the 2015/16 season, stemming around a new campaign to ‘Get Kirklees Working’.”
