We’re not your average recruiter.
What makes us different?
Contract Scotland is a different type of recruitment specialist. Our vision is to change client and candidate perceptions and expectations of the recruitment experience, in a way that enables them to see and feel the true value of what we do.
Our business has been built on 30 years’ experience in the construction, engineering and property sectors. More importantly, though, it’s built on a set of principles and values that not only inspire the best in people, but also truly set us apart.
Professionalism and quality are at the very heart of everything we do, with a smart, objective approach that focuses on the details – because they really matter.
We bring passion, energy and in-depth expertise to every task, to create a positive and lasting impression of the real value derived from working with our team and to develop successful long-term relationships.
Most importantly, we always put your priorities, your goals and your success before our own, being honest and demonstrating unwavering integrity in all our dealings.
We believe that these principles, and our reputation based on reliability, transparency and success, have made us Scotland’s leading construction recruitment specialist – and that they will continue to inspire everyone we come in to contact with to re-evaluate their expectations of the recruitment process.
We've specialised in construction sector recruitment for over 30 years, and during that time we have expanded our offering to include business support services across all industries . So we have a real in-depth understanding of the roles and requirements, and how to fill – and fulfil – them perfectly.
Hard-earned, trust is what successful, lasting partnerships are built on. It’s the reason our clients know we’ll help them achieve their aims: placing the right person in the right role, every time.
Our approach is simple and innovative – rather than use commission to motivate our team, their only target is to match the ideal candidate to their ideal role. That’s why the people we place stay with the companies they join.
Our unique, innovative business model is based on lasting results and client satisfaction, not commission and sales targets. It’s more honest, better for everyone and it works – it’s why people, and clients, stay with us.
