We will provide you with agency personnel of the highest calibre, ensuring that you receive staff with the same skills and professionalism that you would expect from your own employees. We ensure that you get the staff you need quickly and simply, with the minimum of disruption to your business.

Candidate Selection

We use our extensive recruitment experience to select the best candidates for our clients. The position briefing is vital and we use that opportunity to find out as much detail as possible about the role, including talking to the line manager where relevant to discuss their requirements in depth. This detailed, personal approach ensures that we understand what our clients require in a successful candidate and enables us to assess candidates in that light.

Candidate Pre-screening

Our interviews are carefully structured to be extensive assessments of a candidate's relevant experience, competency and suitability for the position they have applied for. We also scrutinise and verify qualifications, visas and any other documentation.
