“Her transition back into the team has been seamless, and we are all grateful for the support she offers not just to me but to the rest of the Multitask Team; her role as a PA is paramount to the business.

Multitask Personnel, the Rotherham based specialist recruitment consultancy, have developed a new website as they continue to reaffirm their brand as a dedicated and experienced recruitment partner.

Led by Managing Director, Claire Lee, the new website highlights the company’s position as a ‘go to’ recruitment specialist for job seekers and hiring managers in the Construction, Mechanical & Electrical, Civil Engineering, Industrial, Environmental Services, and Business Support sectors.

Claire comments: “Though based in South Yorkshire, we work on a national scale to support clients across our specialist sectors. We’re experiencing an increasing demand for our services as the recruitment market grows in confidence and felt the need to update our website to highlight our specialisms and streamline the candidate journey.

“In doing this, we have ensured our website is easier to navigate around and is more user friendly to those looking for work. Our existing website did a great job in supporting businesses looking to hire staff, but we have been able to adapt this more for the candidate market.

“By adapting our new website, we have strategically aligned our focus, and our staff, to provide a quicker response and simpler process for those looking for work. Our new website also offers an easier means for businesses looking for employees too, and with the addition of our chat box for candidates or clients, we’ve made it even simpler for users to speak directly with a member of the recruitment team.

“Our new website still has the same core values but takes us to the next level of customer service – it is well-structured, easy to use, and visually pleasing, and ensures we portray ourselves as leading experts in what we do.

“It’s been an exciting project to work on; we are a team of people who all have pride in the same goals when it comes to recruitment, and it was really important that we went into the website rebuild with that same level of commitment. Having a website in place that has more streamlined processes in place to make looking for work more efficient is something we are all very passionate about, and we are delighted with the results.”

The new Multitask Personnel website can be accessed at www.multitaskpersonnel.co.uk

Multitask Personnel, the South Yorkshire based specialist recruitment consultancy, have grown the client base of their trades and labour department by adding twenty new accounts in September 2021.

The client wins come as part of a key internal drive to develop new business in the construction, M&E, building services and fit out sectors, to meet growing demand for skilled labour as businesses open their doors for new recruits across the UK.

Led by Clive Bateman, Managing Consultant of the Trades & Labour division, the team at Multitask Personnel help tradespeople find suitable employment in temporary, contract and permanent positions, ensuring clients can fill their vacancies quickly and efficiently, with the right people for the job.

Clive comments: “We’re really pleased to bring so many new clients on board. It’s a fantastic achievement for our hard working Trades & Labour team, but it’s also a great sign that recruitment, up and down the country, is as active as ever in these specialist sectors.

“We’ve taken on a range of job roles for our clients, anything from groundworkers, dryliners and ceiling fixers, through to joiners, electricians, labourers and painters, to support businesses who are actively recruiting in the shopfitting, interior fit out, civils and construction sectors.

“As a nationwide recruitment consultancy, we are placing candidates in roles from the north west to the south east, and everywhere in between, so it’s great to see recruitment picking up on a national level as well as regional.

“Recruitment can be a daunting task for hiring managers, particularly if they have numerous roles to fill, so it is our job as specialist recruiters to make the process as straight forward as possible by submitting the right people for interview that match the brief. As a proactive agency, we have a large talent pool of candidates who are ready to work meaning roles can be filled in a timely manner.”

Multitask Personnel strategically align their recruitment divisions to provide an all round service for businesses that have a mix of blue collar, white collar and support staff. This means employers don’t have to go out to multiple agencies for different types of employee.

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

The Company has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, in the coming year we will include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.

This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and we may amend it at any time.

Responsibility for the policy

The Company has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.

The Company has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, and auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective in countering modern slavery.

If you believe or suspect a breach of this policy has occurred or that it may occur, you must notify your line manager or company Director OR report it in accordance with our Whistleblowing Policy as soon as possible.

You should note that where appropriate, and with the welfare and safety of local workers as a priority, we will give support and guidance to our suppliers to help them address coercive, abusive and exploitative work practices in their own business and supply chains.

If you are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers more generally, or their working conditions within any tier of our supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, raise it with your line manager or company Director.

We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.

Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a concern.

If you believe that you have suffered any such treatment, you should inform your line manager immediately. If the matter is not remedied, and you are an employee, you should raise it formally using our Grievance Procedure, which can be found in the current employee handbook.

This Modern (Anti) Slavery Policy and Statement is intended for businesses in all countries, especially the United Kingdom; and was brought to you by Rushax.

Communication & awareness of this policy

Training on this policy, and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains, forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us, and updates will be provided using established methods of communication between the business and you.
