Tuesday 8th March 2022 is International Women’s Day, with this year’s theme of #BreakTheBias campaigning for a gender equal world, free of bias stereotypes and discrimination.
At Multitask Personnel, we’re proud to not only be an equal opportunities employer, but also an inspiring place to learn, work and prosper in a largely female led environment.
Our Managing Director, Claire Lee, takes a look at how developing a successful business from the ground up can empower others to do the same.
Claire tells us more about her journey: “I had worked in recruitment for around 10 years prior to setting up Multitask Personnel, mainly in account management for the environmental, business services, hospitality and industrial sectors. This gave me the grounding and knowledge needed to build up my own business after deciding the more corporate business model was not the direction I wanted to go.
“When I set up Multitask Personnel, it was just me working out of my dining room with a laptop and a phone, but I had a clear direction of where I wanted to take my business. In a largely male dominated industry at the time, it was important for me to break down the stereotype of women in recruitment and lead from the front.
“Business quickly took off, and our first recruits came on board as we started to break into new industries, such as construction, building services, trades and M&E. Again, largely male dominated industries, our team of female recruiters grew the business with confidence, determination, and a lot of hard work.
“Multitask Personnel is now 12 years old with a team of over 15 wonderful people (of which 11 are female), all striving to better themselves and reach their potential. Recruitment can be a cut-throat industry, so it’s vital to have a team of self-motivated and driven people who can take a negative and turn it into a positive. It’s that determination that helps you succeed, and our team have that in abundance.
“None of what we have achieved would have been possible with the support of my fantastic team at Multitask, with three members of the team having worked with us since the beginning, and a further three recently surpassing 5 years’ service of their own. Our success is theirs to celebrate as well.”
Dawn Wilson-Crumbie, PA at Multitask Personnel adds: “As a woman in business, working for Multitask Personnel is empowering. Developing strong female leaders within the business helps us stand out in what has typically been a male dominated sector, but it also creates an environment where young women can learn and develop a new career, and reach the top.
“There’s no glass ceiling here, and with the right guidance and strategic development plans from the senior management team anyone can achieve anything, regardless of age, race, background or gender.”

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.”

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.
