We started up in 1990. Our idea was to offer companies a higher quality recruitment services at a rate that offered better value for many.
Today, we’re Scotland’s biggest independent technical and professional recruiter, and we’ve even branched out to other countries including Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
We know some people think recruiters have no ethics (some bad apples spoil it for the rest of us). However, everyone here at Contract Scotland is performance managed against particular qualities in everything we do. They’re qualities we value because they form the backbone of the competitive service we provide.
They’re what makes us different.
Keeping a strong sense of social responsibility helps us use the clout of a company to do things that are less ‘corporate’ and more ‘human’. Our focus is on providing work opportunities for all, especially those who are furthest removed from the workplace.
Ours is a people industry. So building relationships is what we do – with our customers. We’ve also established strong connections with industry bodies, to help us do a better job, understand our clients’ needs, and make a positive difference to the industry as a whole.
An organisation is nothing without its people; as a recruitment company, we appreciate that more than anyone. Most of our people have been with us for years, with an average tenure that’s way above average for our industry. That gives us a specialist team, a family if you like, that’s unique in the industry. So without further ado, here are the skilled, experienced ladies and gentlemen that get the job(s) done for you.
Want to work with Scotland’s top technical and professional recruiter? Want to work in a company with the best retention rates in the industry? Of course, you do. Well, we’d love to hear from you. So if you want a career that lasts, step this way…
Constructing Futures is now in its fifth year helping recent Graduates into employment through part-time unpaid job shadow placements. We took some time to catch up with Ironside Farrar, one of the organisations we’ve dealt with over that time, for their thoughts on how the service has worked for them.
You don’t need Contract Scotland telling you year-end is fast approaching… but you may need us, however, to provide your sites with a solution to help meet those targets?
So, it’s nearly a year on from our last S1 Award win for ‘Best Recruitment Agency’, and we’re happy as pigs in the proverbial, knowing that we’ve been shortlisted as a finalist in the same category again for 2019.
