Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, a franchise opportunity for plumbing contractors, has agreed to work with Plumbing Agent, an online employment resource.

“Our business is growing rapidly, and as a result, our managers spend a significant portion of their day recruiting and hiring the best plumbers in our industry,” said Rebecca Cassel, president, One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating. “We are looking to Plumbing Agent for help in adding hundreds of positions nationwide as we strive to become the No. 1 provider of residential plumbing services in the United States and Canada.”

Founded last November, Plumbing Agent uses both the Internet and non-Internet based recruiting strategies to locate the most qualified plumbing professionals for each available job. Unlike an Internet career site or recruiting/staffing firm, Plumbing Agent charges one convenient monthly membership fee. There are no fees charged for a job posting or for employee placement. The company says pooling resources significantly reduces each member's advertising costs and leads to quality job applicants.

Plumbing Agent is an offshoot of HVAC Agent, a similar resource for the HVACR industry.
