The UK construction scene is a demanding and challenging environment that requires quality individuals performing at the top of their professions to ensure the highest standards are being achieved. On the back of increased construction activity, demand for this talent has well and truly exceeded what is available on the open market. Traditional recruitment options, in these conditions, are less likely to unearth the high calibre candidates. So it is critical to be prepared to think and look outside of the box. To do this the recruiter must have a solid understanding of the client’s requirement as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the industry/sector they are placing into.
At Number 8 we combine the ability to confidentially approach passive candidates who display the skills and experience required, with a creative, targeted strategy in place to locate them. Our philosophy at Number 8 has always been to offer a relaxed, unpretentious approach with both clients and candidates. Essentially, although an issue for us, we want the recruitment fee to be the least important factor in the process to match really good people with the right employer. If we achieve this we have done what we set out to and earned the rewards
