One of the questions people often ask is simply “why do I need a specialist recruitment provider?” After all, there are a wealth of generalist recruitment agencies out there, with mountains of CVs to sift through. They’re standardised, they’re often automated, and they’re one-size-fits-all.
The issue is that in this industry, projects aren’t one-size-fits-all. Every individual project has its own unique requirements, its own specific wrinkles, and relying on a generalist agency to provide your solutions can often result in a recruitment partner that’s uninformed, inflexible and slow to adapt. When your requirements are diverse and specific, you need a recruitment partner with good, old-fashioned experience with the problems you need to solve.
CHOOSING A RECRUITMENT PARTNER THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU
When you choose a recruitment partner, you’re going on a journey with them – and like any journey, what you need for it depends on the trip you’re taking. For a five-minute jaunt into town, any vehicle will do, and the driver doesn’t matter. But for an extended road trip, you need to pick your vehicle and pick your companions carefully – you need comfort, performance, and people who you get along with!
In the construction industry, each project is a road trip, and you need personnel that understand what you want them to do, and have the skills and experience to get it done without any headaches. When it comes to your recruitment partner, you need a firm that knows the difference between a Tug Skipper and a Barge Master, someone who can find you the right person to man a Long-Reach 360 Dredger without having to look it up or just guess at key-words on a CV. In a field as complex as construction, experience means a lot.
With a skill shortage still hindering many areas of the industry, you need someone with access to a pool of experienced candidates to cut through that labour drought and connect you with the personnel who have the training to accomplish your goals.
