As a new Executive Chef I anticipated having to recruit new staff to join the team and Stafffinders have been very professional in finding the calibre of staff I require, from temps to perms, including my three sous chefs who are the backbone of my team.
Stafffinders Recruitment Services during Covid-19
7 September 2020
The effects of Covid-19 have triggered a wide-ranging impact within the job market, although amidst many uncertainties, the Stafffinders team has been privileged to offer our support the best we can to both candidates and clients alike. With our offices now open, we’re looking forward to welcoming our candidates and clients back in when it is safe to do so.
The team at Stafffinders have been honoured to offer our award-winning recruitment services across numerous industries throughout the Covid-19 crisis, in particular our partnership with the NHS to help support the new demand faced over these difficult months. Since the lockdown commenced, our dedicated Consultants have managed to place an additional 100 candidates within several NHS hospitals across Scotland and we continue to support their recruitment needs. We have placed devoted domestics at the Royal Infirmary to perform essential cleaning procedures, dependable porters at Gartnavel to supply vital transport for patients, helpdesk advisors across the NHS sites to provide crucial assistance and so much more. Our hospitality team also secured talented PVG cooks within care homes, providing vital meals and care to those most at risk. The Stafffinders team would like to thank all of our committed and reliable candidates who really made an impact during these tough times.
One of our key clients J.W. Filshill experienced a sudden increase in demand due to the effects of Covid-19 and were vital in providing essential goods all over Scotland. We placed numerous experienced forklift drivers and pickers on various shift patterns within their warehouse to ensure the team at J.W. Filshill could operate to match this enhanced demand. It has been incredibly humbling to see businesses prosper in an unprecedented climate and were so pleased that we can provide such a diverse workforce to help many organisations at this challenging time.
Covering a magnitude of divisions all over Scotland also allowed us to support many more sectors including the construction industry and commercial sector. The construction industry faced many disruptions, however as soon as projects began to resume, we were thrilled to offer our help in building resilient teams to get the industry back on its feet. Now facing a large increase in demand, we are proud to be one of the go-to recruitment agencies to support the construction sector with many proficient candidates across numerous job roles. Although much of the commercial sector converted to a working from home structure, our team continued to place high-calibre candidates for a variety of remote working positions, to help support our reputable clients.
The whole Stafffinders team have been privileged to support so many individuals get into work and help organisations of all industries remain strong through an unprecedented period. As we look towards a better future, our goal remains to focus on delivering immediate and high-quality recruitment services for both clients and candidates across Scotland. It continues to be our responsibility to support organisations build professional teams, whilst sourcing new job opportunities for our ever-growing candidate database.
