IPro Solutions – Temporary Recruitment and the importance of maintaining a network.
At Plus One Personnel our teams of specialist recruiters offer support for temporary, permanent and fixed term contract vacancies. Offering all three of these services means that we can tailor our service to our clients and their individual business needs.
An excellent example of this is Ipro Solutions. Since we began our relationship with IPRO in 2016, Plus One Personnel have successfully recruited into
multiple departments on a temporary, permanent and contract basis.
Ipro are the UK's leading Global Sourcing and Manufacturing Solutions provider. They bring together resources from multiple disciplines and offer in house and external outsourced supply chain solutions. Their services encompass design, sourcing, outsourcing, sub assembly and full product manufacturing and they currently operate from offices in the UK, Malaysia, China and India.
Our Operations and Technical team work with Assembly and Production staff on a daily basis and when, due to an increased workload, there was an urgent need to increase headcount in their assembly and production team, IPro asked us to provide four temporary workers who all required very specific experience using hand tools.
Hiring on a temporary basis provided flexibility for our client, it allowed them to wait for the additional work to become consistent before they increased headcount on a permanent basis. After discussing the requirements we established that this would also be the most effective solution for an immediate staff shortage.
In order to provide effective recruitment support, our team had to utilise their existing network of candidates, built up by consistently recruiting within relatable sectors. Providing temporary staff requires a detailed process. As well as screening, candidates references and right to work checks, it is vital that we meet candidates face to face before introducing them to a client. Due to our existing network of candidates were able to expedite our shortlist within the timescales that our client provided.
Our Operations and Technical recruiters had four temporary candidates on site at IPRO solutions within a week and following excellent feedback on all of the candidates provided, we were then asked to provide several more candidates over the following months as the need increased.
These temporary placements resulted in four of our candidates being taken on permanently with one being promoted to Production Supervisor in under a year from their temporary start. As a team of recruiters who really care about their candidates and clients, this is a fantastic result and really demonstrates the benefits of using temporary recruitment to its full potential.
