Recruitment agencies… often said in the same sentence as an expletive due to an over-aggressive minority of firms giving the entire sector a bad name. But we’re not all bad, and we’re certainly not all the same. Yes, we’re here to make money by providing our services just the same as any other business, however many firms are not in it to simply make a quick buck and do have the best, and the long-term interests of their clients at heart.
Welcome to Multitask Personnel. We’re a South Yorkshire based recruitment partner (notice we said partner there and not agency?), who work on a national scale to provide an all encompassing solution to clients across a variety of sectors, in particular Utilities, Construction, Building Services, Plumbing & Heating and M&E.
We don’t claim to be a jack of all trades because that would mean we are a master of none, and that is certainly not the case. We have strategically aligned ourselves and our staff to make sure we can provide an all-round service for businesses that have a mix of blue collar, white collar, and support staff. This means the same thing to our customers as it does to ourselves – we can supply key members of staff to fill all of your roles, meaning you don’t have to go out to multiple agencies for different types of employee.
Quite simply put, once we have proved our credentials are what we say they are, you can put all your trust in us to find the right people to help your organisation fly. The employer / recruiter relationship is key to long-term success, and that’s what we like to do – strike up long-term relationships with our clients by getting to know their business, the people, and its culture inside out.
When that trust is there, the same trust we have built up with many long-term clients since we started in business almost 10 years ago, the process of finding the best employees becomes a much easier task because you can rely on your recruitment partner to put forward the most appropriate candidates that are the right fit for you.
Because each of our specialist divisions (Technical, Professional and Support Services) has its own team of specialist recruiters who are formally trained within the industry, it means they know their sector inside out and understand how your business operates. This makes finding the right staff so much easier.
We know that finding the right person for your business is not always an easy task, there are so many candidates on the market (even more so in the current climate) and streamlining the hiring process can be a mine field, especially if you don’t have the time or human resource to deal with this in-house. That’s where your recruitment agency earns its fee. If they’re doing their job right, they will make this process as stress free as possible by taking away the pains of shortlisting and profiling, and only putting the most relevant candidates forward for interview consideration.
But let’s not leave it at that. A good agency should also be thinking about staff retention with everyone they put forward. Are the candidates likely to stick around and become a vital part of the business for years to come? Are they good team players? Do they have the right personality type to fit in with the culture of the business? It’s not just about making a quick placement. The more value you get from your employees, that more likely you are to work with your agency again! To us, a happy client is a returning client, and that’s where the partnership element comes in yet again.
At Multitask Personnel, we work with a large pool of active candidates who we can put forward for permanent, temporary or contract vacancies across a comprehensive range of positions within your business. From office support to highly skilled technical roles, our job is to take away the hassle of recruitment, leaving you free to get on with running your business.
We like to think our recruitment methods focus on more than just the here and now. We become part of your organisation, a bit like the internal recruitment department you never had, and become advocates for your brand to filter through the most appropriate candidates. Building a long-lasting and trusted partnership makes sure the relationship is built on a collaboration and not merely on a transactional basis.
As staff retention and development is a key driver for our own organisation, we understand the importance of making sure the right candidates are put forward for your roles. We can offer help and advice on shortlisting, making an offer and onboarding any new recruits you take on. It might sound like an age old cliché, but we’re there with you at every step of the recruitment process.
We aim to offer much more than just a standard service, and are geared up to provide support to every area of your business from unskilled temporary workers right through to skilled engineers, trades people and senior office managers.
Our processes are carefully crafted to match the ambitions and culture of our clients to ensure we deliver the best results possible.
