Here are a few examples of our swift services: 

  • Recently, we were given the task of finding 16 Fire Risk Assessors for a globally recognised Facilities Management company. We were assigned this after a major household name recruiter had failed to respond positively within two weeks, providing 0 candidates. Within a month, we had filled 15 of the roles.
  • On a Friday at 4.30pm, we were called and asked to supply an Interim Health and Safety Manager for a role which was to start on Monday to support a major waste and recycling company whose manager had been taken seriously ill. By 5.15 we had filled the role and the successful candidate started on the Monday.
