The Right People for Construction Recruitment in Scotland


Introduction

The Right People for Construction Recruitment in Scotland

Contract Scotland has successfully provided Technical and Professional staff to the Scottish construction industry since 1990 from our head office in Stirling. An award winning recruitment consultancy, we have provided temporary and permanent solutions to the whole construction sector including Architects, Consulting Engineers, Building and Civil Engineering Contractors, PQS, Local Authorities, Housebuilders and more. During this time we have built our reputation on the twin parameters of cost and quality. We provide a value added recruitment service at all stages of the process in ensuring that all individuals we supply are of the highest calibre available at the most cost effective salary or hourly rate.

We strive to excel and adhere to recruitment guidelines set by the Recruitment Employment Confederation and Employment legislation. We aim to introduce candidates who are at least of second interview calibre gained by fully understanding the job seeker’s requirements and the prerequisites of the job specification. Couple this with ascertaining genuine independent references from previous employers prior to CV submission, we are ensuring the basics such as salary, location or job title don’t become barriers to employment and don’t waste your time in the interview process.


Continuous Professional Development

The Right People for Construction Recruitment in Scotland

Since 2004, Contract Scotland has offered a unique service in coordinating and contributing towards our the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of our temporary workforce. Initially set up to attract and retain temporary workers, our commitment to our workforce’s CPD has grown over the years as client demand has increased. We now have a dedicated Training & Development Department that regularly communicates the necessity for up to date industry required qualifications, facilitating access to courses such as the CITB 5 Day Site Safety Management and full First Aid at Work. These courses are delivered from our on site dedicated training room at weekends to allow minimal downtime from work and at significantly reduced prices compared to the industry standard. We work in partnership with our Clients to ensure the temporary worker supplied is appropriately safety qualified for the vacant position. The UK Contractors Group (UKCG) has strived for a fully safety qualified workforce and wants to ensure site members have the necessary skills to supervise effectively. Contract Scotland shares these goals and aims to provide our workers with training opportunities wherever possible to improve their personal and site health and safety.By providing in-house training solutions our temporary candidates are not at a disadvantage to their permanently employed colleague. Contract Scotland is offering commitment to their CPD and that investment in their future provides a highly qualified and loyal workforce for our Clients. Our temporary workers feel secure that we will provide information, advice and access to discounted training as if they were employed permanently.Contract Scotland is actively providing a solution to the issue of improving health & safety training and recognise that we work in partnership with the Scottish Construction Industry.

The Right People for Construction Recruitment in Scotland

Our community activities include workingwith The Bridges Programme & The Raploch URC as our Community Partners.

WithThe Bridges Programme we have worked with their "Equipped for the Future" programme which is designed to give CV production & interview skills to Refugees.

Our staff have been involved in conducting mock interviews, assisting with CV preparation and identifying potential work opportunities for refugees on completion of their course. We have successfully found employment for four Refugees from previous courses.

With The Raploch URC we were specifically involved with "Breaking the Mould" which was a scheme aimed at finding construction opportunities for long term unemployed women from the Raploch area of Stirling. Our staff were involved in identifying Construction Companies whose workload would best suit the candidates on completion of their NVQ. These activities helped us obtain our Community Mark in 2008, the benchmark by which Corporate Social Responsibility strategies are measured by the Business led charity "Business in the Community".
