I had a good impression of Stafffinders right from the moment I registered. I sent my CV in response to a job advert I had seen and heard back from the recruitment consultant quickly. She was extremely helpful, and talked me through all of the duties I would have to make sure I felt comfortable with them, and she helped make registering and interviewing less daunting. I was given support both before and after the interview, and in the gap between my interview and start date she kept in touch to make sure I was still happy to go ahead. Having started the assignment, I have found that this level of support and encouragement has not faltered – I have been able to contact Michelle and Stafffinders whenever I’ve had a query and they’ve always been able to help me quickly. I would recommend registering with Stafffinders to anyone looking for work!
What a Year: Stafffinders 2018 Roundup
28 December 2018
As 2018 winds down and we reflect on the past year, we realise that 2018 has been a truly incredible year for Team Stafffinders.
Not only have we celebrated our many achievements and welcomed new members to our team, however we have also faced and overcome several challenges including GDPR.
As we prepare to write our first chapter of 2019, first we would like to share our top highlights from 2018!
As well as the addition of new clients, we have also continued to work with our many of our valued clients and some of Scotland’s most prestigious firms and iconic brands in 32 key recruitment divisions.
We pride ourselves on building and maintaining genuine working relationships. This great way of working is a key reason as to why many of our clients choose to work with us time and time again.
Here is what our long-standing clients have to say:
CROMIX HOUSE HOTEL - “Stafffinders have been of great help with me at Cromlix over many years and have done a good job in helping fill various vacancies. With several of the people introduced, they have moved on to more senior roles.”
UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW – “Stafffinders has been a valuable recruitment partner of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences Design and Communication Support Team at the University of Glasgow, for the last few years. They have a very people-centric approach that goes beyond just matching skills and experience to a job spec. I know when I interview a Stafffinders candidate they will have already vetted as a suitable fit within our company and culture by a partner who knows us well.”
Expansion of our recruitment services
As part of our long-term growth strategy, we expanded into two new sectors – Aerospace and Automotive, and Renewables and Recycling. Both sectors are experiencing strong growth and we look forward to witnessing how they continue to develop in 2019.
Moreover, through the addition of new Industrial Recruitment Consultants, our industrial division is stronger than ever, positioning us as one of Scotland’s major industrial recruitment suppliers.
Awards we have received nominations for
This year also witnessed our excellent staffing solutions receive a nomination in the S1 Job Awards. As a result of our hard work and dedication to our clients and candidates, we were a finalist for Best Medium Recruitment Agency!
How we helped our local communities flourish
As a proud Scottish brand, we are passionate about helping our local communities. This year we supported RAMH (Recovery Across Mental Health) and Canongate Youth – a Children’s Social and Youth Employability Charity.
As well as volunteering our time, we also volunteered our skills and expertise. For example, two of our staff spent a day in the RAMH superstore helping to prepare packs for a housing project. We have also provided marketing workshops to the charity’s volunteers, enabling them to expand their reach and appeal.
Our team braved the Paisley10K and raised a fantastic amount of £732.50 for RAMH!
Bake sale galore!
Our talented team baked some delicious treats, raising a total of £132.08.
Toy and gift donations
Temp of the Month project
We also implemented a Temp of the Month project which has enabled us to thank our hardworking temporary candidates. This year we saw five fantastic temps win the Temp of the Month award and we thanked them individually with a prize.
We are excited to see many more enthusiastic, motivated temps win the award next year!
Our involvement with the Santander Universities SME Internship Programme
Over summer, we took on four penultimate year Strathclyde University Business School students as Interns over a fun-filled 10-week period. They worked on a variety of projects in our HR and Marketing departments to help improve our overall business strategy.
They enhanced our online presence through Search Engine Optimisation, produced a new corporate brochure and prepared a new staff handbook!
This year has also witnessed the promotions of four of our valued employees. As a result of their hard work and dedication to Stafffinders, Graham was promoted to Marketing Manager whilst Kerry became Senior Administrator and our Hospitality Recruitment Manager, Graeme, was promoted to Recruitment Project Manager. Likewise, Chloe and Danielle’s outstanding performance and commitment saw them be promoted to Office Support Manager and Managing Consultant.
Well done team!
