Recruitment in construction industry

Our belief - Partners in Recruitment

At GCS Associates our approach is innovative, entrepreneurial and flexible, ensuring clients receive a high degree of service whilst continuing to keep a delivery led focus. We do not view recruitment services as ‘off the shelf’ and work with our clients to understand and develop recruitment services to suit their business needs.

At GCS Associates we view our clients as business partners and strive to develop professional relationships built on trust and respect. This ensures a confidential flow of business information, resulting in the timely completion of assignments, efficient planning and management of future business requirements.

Within a fast paced industry it is essential that we apply a number of recruitment methodologies to ensure the prompt delivery of quality talent in-line with our clients’ business objectives. We understand that the delivery of this talent is key to our client’s growth and failure to deliver could have a serious impact on the P&L of each division. With this in mind, we aim to tailor a service that will ensure ongoing delivery of talent against clear delivery targets.

Why use GCS Associates?

GCS Associates deal with a high volume of repeat recruitment requirements. Clients come back to us because our service is unrivalled. Below are some of the reasons why people come back.

Specialisation - Whether you are an employer or a job seeker you can deal with individuals who are experts in your area of work. This high level of understanding of the world within which you operate makes dealing with us easy and efficient.

Candidate screening - We interview all candidates thoroughly. Such a detailed process ensures we understand our candidates - their current situation, objectives, work history and what drives them in the work place. Once our interview process is completed, it is only the top few candidates that make it through to your interview process. Extensive interviews are carried out on your behalf. It is our job to sift through the CVs and send over only the high calibre matches.

A managed interview process - We will oversee the entire interview schedule and organisation, as well as providing full interview feedback to both candidate and client. Any job offer will be overseen by the consultant and once accepted the consultant will provide assistance and support at the often unpleasant resignation stage.

End goal - Working in a fast paced, expansion recruitment environment, it is imperative we work together with your end goal in mind. When discussing a role we enquire into the ideal start date and schedule in interviews appropriately. We therefore know what your aims are and convey this when interviewing candidates. Everyone is working to a specific deadline from start to finish.

Our targets - Unlike other recruitment companies we are not targeted on the number of candidates we send out. We are only targeted on placements and efficiencies. It is against our interest to send out candidates that we are not confident would get offered the job.

Sociability - Everyone who encounters our company should feel that they have been treated in a friendly, helpful and professional manner.

Finding candidates

Networking - GCS employs a wide range of networking tools and techniques to ensure a regular flow of fresh talent. We will draw on our existing network of sales and management candidates and external contacts to identify passive candidates in the market that could potentially be of interest to you, the client.

Advertising - We will also look to source candidates from third party CV repositories and through advertising across relevant web media.

Database - Our purpose build database is continually updated on an hourly basis with relevant and available candidates - thus providing a rich source of candidates across the UK.

Exclusivity - Should you require, a dedicated Resource Consultant can be allocated to your account to provide an ongoing pipeline of candidates. They will focus on your account to fully understand the culture of the company and get an in depth insight into the type of candidate best suited to your organisation.
