Permanent construction and engineering recruitment

We operate to supply permanent staff to suit your specific needs. In today’s market, construction and engineering resources can be tight resulting in a candidate driven market.

With this in mind, Hard Hat Recruits has worked with clients and candidates on a long term basis and have built the relationships that create an open and honest recruitment environment. This means that salaries are not overinflated and both hiring managers and candidates get the very best start to an employment journey.

We do not compromise on the quality of service, however do have to work at speed to secure the very best people. Our pure recruitment and candidate management allows us to quickly locate, track, and manage the best applicants for client approved roles.

Often, clients do not have access to the ‘non-hoppers’ – those who are in a role and are not actively looking – as a result Hard Hat can provide you with more of a choice, without you feeling that there is a shortage of skilled workers and settling for second best. We focus on the ‘hard’ part, and we are good at it.

Contract recruitment

Our main core business is permanent recruitment however we do manage a contracting division of highly skilled professionals offering a flexible approach for clients to service those short term/ immediate requirements.

Many people now regard the ‘flexible work force’ as the model for future employment and companies seek to take on specialist skills when and where they are needed rather than invest in additional permanent or fixed term project staff.

Where possible, we work with the Project Teams to determine requirements in line with schedules as this assists in sourcing specialists for a specific project.

The hard hat recruitment process

Our process:

For new clients, we ask for a client led overview of the company (over and above our own research) as well as a meeting with the most appropriate person within the business to take a position briefing. Depending on company protocols, this can be Human Resources, a designated Project Manager or the direct line manager.

Once formal approval to recruit is granted, we agree communication parameters and advertise the positions internally, on job boards and in our own networks often sourcing your people through a search and source function (at no extra cost).

Expressions of interest and applications are all acknowledged and screened against the role requirements and client criteria. Our team will only present the best candidates, as we believe in quality over quantity. We have and offer tailor made guaranteed services to our clients. We are risk free, outcome focussed and deliver a high quality service at industry competitive rates.

We are here to do the hard part for you, so you can sit back and relax throughout the recruitment process, with 100% confidence in Hard Hat Recruits.
