WE'RE NOT YOUR AVERAGE RECRUITER.
Let’s address the elephant in the room – some recruitment consultancies have a bad reputation. We’ve heard stories of bad experiences with recruiters from our clients and, frankly, we cringed.
When we started in 1990, we could see dependable, good quality recruitment services that actually put customers first and offered value for money were thin on the ground. That was the gap in the market we wanted to fill.
Today we’re Scotland’s leading independent construction recruiter and after speaking to our clients, we think these are a few of the reasons why:
It’s such a simple skill. But to build a partnership that makes us a valuable resource to you, we have to get to know your business, your concerns, aspirations and the way you work. That gives us a better idea about your recruitment needs and the sort of people who’ll be a good fit for your business’s culture too. Our satisfaction survey so far in 2016 reveals that 96% of employers who use us feel we truly understand their business and trust us, we’re working on that 4%!
People are different. Businesses are different. So our approach to every hire has to be different too. It’s common sense really, but it’s surprising how many agencies just fire CVs at you without asking all the right questions first. For us, bespoke is the best way to help you.
We vet job seekers for you extremely carefully. We check their references, their eligibility to work and their site qualifications before you even hear their names. And we look at the person and what they’re all about, not just their CV.
As one Employer nicely put it:

We want you to find the right person for the job. So we’re happy to pass on some of our specialist industry knowledge to help you. It’s free, too.
Competency-based questions can help you towards getting the right person for the job by evaluating their past experience
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.
