Why Candidates Choose Us?

We have over 15 years experience in building services recruitment and want to provide you with a service that you will be confident in recommending to others. We pride ourselves on our open, honest and non aggressive approach.

Targeted Approach

We do not just act as a CV forwarding service. We want to know exactly what you are looking for.

Whether you are applying for a specific job or whether you are considering your options, we will look at specific companies with you, and together we will identify ones that you want us to target.

Our clients understand our targeted approach and as such know that when we approach them it is about someone who has already been fully briefed about their organisation. 

Confidentiality & Interviews

The building services industry is very close knit and therefore all applications/conversations will be treated confidentially. Your details will only be put forward to companies with your agreement, therefore minimising the time that you will spend attending interviews. We will disclose company names to you, (unless we have been asked to act confidentially) that way ensuring that you are always fully aware of who we are approaching on your behalf.

Exclusivity

Many other agencies who claim to specialise in building services engineering may not respect your privacy and may e-mail your CV to every company on their database with the aim of “getting your CV there first”.

As we work differently, we would recommend that in the first instance you only contact us. By giving us as little as one week’s exclusivity, it allows us time to ensure your confidentiality and ensure that we can represent you professionally.  

In addition, recent feedback from clients indicates that many unsolicited e-mails (especially from agencies just e-mailing candidates CV’s speculatively) get deleted before being opened and in situations where a CV is received from many different agencies, companies can be put under a lot of pressure from the different parties which may result in your interview being declined.  

If we fail to generate interest from the companies that we have targeted we will be honest with you. If you then wish to look at another recruitment agency then we will respect your wishes.

If you are currently considering your next career move or are just wondering what options are available to you, we would like to hear from you.
