Back in 1989, entrepreneur Meta Oxley-Vale had a vision to develop a successful business which would improve candidate selection for local companies and source the best-fit jobs for the people of Basingstoke. Armed with her drive, enthusiasm and determination, Meta established Wote St. Employment Bureau. Originally set-up as a driving agency, Wote St. has evolved into one of the longest-standing employment companies in Basingstoke.
Over twenty years on and two recessions later, the independent recruiter continues to enjoy business growth and still stands by their same values and ethics. Now offering a bespoke recruitment service through the use of innovative tools such as profiling, Wote St. can deliver a tailored recruitment process which is valued by some of Basingstoke’s most prestigious small to medium sized businesses.
Although Meta is still heavily involved in the business, Maxine Hart has recently been appointed Director, in celebration of her ten years’ service. This partnership ensures that while Maxine heads-up the day-to-day running of the team, Meta can concentrate on overseeing the investment and vision for the business.
Together, Meta and Maxine continually campaign to change the negative perception of the recruitment industry. This passion gained them an industry award with The Employment Agents Movement as “Member of the Year”. TEAM is the largest independent networked group of recruitment and employment service providers in the UK. By linking their services together they can provide a comprehensive range of services covering the whole of ther recuruitment spectrum.
Being an Independent recruitment agency allows the company to continually evolve and adapt to the changing needs of its local community. Meta and Maxine see their team’s integrity and flexible approach to recruitment as the contributing factors that keep Clients loyal and make Candidates choose Wote St. Employment Bureau as their preferred recruiter.
