The object became known as the Newark Torc
and was bought last year for pounds 350,000 by Newark and Sherwood District Council.
But Paddy Collins, director of Torc
, said despite the underlying rise in recruitment, there were mixed messages.
Chris Mackie, of the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project dig, said: "I'm sure the piece will now be reunited with the torc
in the British Museum.
director Paddy Collins said: "The market for senior managers started improving towards the end of last year, and we are very happy to report continued growth and the highest quarterly figures in the last two years.
The centre incorporates Torc
High School, which closed because of falling pupil numbers in Tamworth.
Any transaction involving Torc
, which stands close to the older and grander Great Southern Hotel in the Co Kerry holiday town, has been put on hold ahead of the resolution of staff issues.
The ballot follows Great Southern's move to close and sell the Torc
Coun Lee Bates said a petition he has started has collected more than 500 names as he aims to bring a torc
, found in Tamworth 64 years ago, back home.
Yesterday it was revealed that the finder took one of the bracelets, known as a ribbon torc
, to a Cork jeweller to be valued.
The event, at Torc
Campus, in Glascote Heath, was designed to inform and encourage the business community to take an active role in the centre's development.
Mr Keane said he knew the artefact, known as a ribbon torc
, was 80 per cent gold and very old, but he did not realise how old.
