‘Recruitment Agencies are all the same’…


(If only I had a pound for every time I’ve heard that over the years 😂)

‘Why would I pay a fee to recruit candidates from Scotland when I can just find them online myself’.. 🙄

Well.. Here’s why..📢

I honestly don’t think I’ll ever get tired of telling companies why they should partner with Contract Scotland for their recruitment needs

✔ We’ve provided technical/professional staff to the Scottish construction industry since 1990 and are the largest independent consultancy within the market here.

✔ The International Division at Contract Scotland was created in 2010 to supply staff to the construction, engineering and property sectors out with Scotland and the UK.

✔ Recruiting ‘internationally’ isn’t the same as recruiting ‘domestically’. It requires more of your recruitment partner – they need to be more thorough, really understand and get ‘to the bottom’ of potential candidates (be that their experience, capability, motivations or family situation) and guide/support them through what sometimes can be a lengthy recruitment process.

✔ It can be easy to think that a recruiters role stops when the individual starts a new position. We don’t believe that for roles in Scotland and we definitely don’t believe it when filling roles internationally – we play a key role in the successful onboarding of a new employee.

✔ There are more risks and complexities when hiring from overseas and we can support you to manage these. With over 13 years’ experience in International recruitment, we’ve had great success and also learned what is required of us

With so many recruiters out there it’s important to partner with the right one who can really add value to the recruitment process and not just be a ‘CV sending service’ ❗
