“Having failed to fill a technical engineering vacancy with a number of recruitment agencies over a period of 6 months we approached Marske Site Services (MSS) in September 2015 to see if they could help.
“Rather than deal with our enquiry over the phone MSS met with us on site to familiarise himself with the role and to understand the profile of the person we were looking for. They also took the time to learn about our culture and our long term plans for the business.
“Within a few weeks of our first meeting we were presented with three carefully selected candidates one of whom met our requirements exactly, with the added bonus of living within the local area. Also important was the fact that candidates arrived for interview fully prepared with a good knowledge of the company and the position that was on offer.
“It’s not often that you associate the principle of ‘right first time’ with recruitment but on this occasion it was clear that this had been achieved as the candidate accepted our offer and was in post before Christmas. From the employer/employee’s perspective a recent one to one review confirmed that we did indeed find the right person and more importantly he’s extremely happy in his new role and looking forward to a rewarding future with the company.
The whole process from picking up the phone to MSS and finding the right person took less than 2 months, with very little administration on our part. We now have an excellent working relationship with MSS and based on our experience we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to fill a technical engineering role.”
