Company Questions

Why should we use Concorde Recruitment?

One of the main attractions of using Concorde to find the right person for your permanent post is that we operate a “no placement – no fee” basis. We find this often suits our employers, as it represents a low risk method of recruitment. Using Concorde to provide a temporary worker or temporary workforce enables you to manage staffing numbers around changes in your business whatever they may be.

With over 20 years of recruiting locally and nationally we have built an extensive database of candidates and update our register daily. This gives us immediate access to qualified, skilled and experienced candidates.

As part of a large South West College organisation we can draw on a network of 1600 colleagues. They can assist us in providing candidates from the local educational talent pool. This means we have a wider understanding of the local economy and knowledge of practical training meaning we can further support your needs.

 

How can Concorde help us find staff?

Concorde endeavours to find people to fit all kinds of jobs, from temporary to permanent, full-time or part-time and in numerous career fields. Whether a company needs an administrative assistant, a driving operative, an accountant or a carpenter, Concorde can find the right employee. Where appropriate and possible, Concorde will pre-screen and interview candidates prior to submitting them for consideration. This helps reduce the amount of time our clients spend on interviewing non-relevant candidates.

We are trained and experienced in creating effective advertising campaigns to attract the best candidates. Our knowledge of where to post adverts on local and national job boards enables us to match the right candidate to the right job.

 

Can you advise me on pay rates?

With a wealth of knowledge & experience within the recruitment market place, we understand salary expectations, temporary pay levels for particular job roles and sector areas. We use and share this information to ensure you are paying the correct rate.

 

How do I know that Concorde temporary workers hold relevant Qualifications/Tickets/Licenses?

We ensure that during registration our temporary staff produces original copies of relevant qualifications/tickets/licenses that they hold.  Copies of these are held on a candidate’s file.
