NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The president of a Wilmington-based company says he's in the middle of a hiring boom.
Castle Branch, an employment screening company, plans to hire 300 people over the next few years. This move will double the size of the business.
Employers are currently hiring 50 new people to fill its office building on Sir Tyler Drive, across from Mayfaire.
The company recently expanded to California, so some of the new positions will be based there. However, he reiterated that the company is committed to the Wilmington community. Company president Joe Finley says they may have to build a new facility here to accommodate the company's growth.
"We really want to take care of our employees," he said. "We really want to be a strong company in this community and really support this community. So it is exciting to be part of something that is growing and seeing that and seeing how the community gets behind that."
The company hires a lot of UNCW graduates. However, Finley said they expect to hire more experienced workers during this hiring boom.
Castle Branch does employee background checks and recently grew into screening those in the health care industry.
