Why use an M&E labour specialist to recruit your workforce?

The UK construction industry often relies on specialist recruitment agencies and labour only suppliers to obtain the highest quality candidates to work on projects. Recruitment can be a timely and costly process with significant demand for M&E workers for each project. Hiring a candidate that isn’t suitable can also be detrimental. Time and money spent on a candidate whose performance is unsatisfactory will be in vain, so making the best selection for each role is imperative.

Whether you’re an SME or a large national contractor, working with a specialist recruiter or labour supplier has many advantages. So, we’ve rounded up four primary benefits of working with a labour only supplier to hire your workforce.

You will save time

The hiring process can be time-consuming, especially in the M&E sector. You will have to spend time creating the job listing and advertising the role. Once you have applicants, you need to interview them, authenticate their qualifications, negotiate salaries, and finalise contracts.

The time you spend on the hiring process is time you could use to focus on more essential tasks. Using an M&E recruitment specialist or labour only provider will save you a lot of time, and consequently, you will procure your workforce quicker too.

They’re experts at hiring

One of the most prominent advantages of using a specialist labour provider is their experience and knowledge. Recruitment companies find and recruit candidates every day, and to be successful in their field, they will ensure the candidates they source are reliable workers.

Recruiters know what traits to look for, and they’ll be able to recognise dependable candidates that are good at their roles and have a proven track record.

They already have candidates

Recruiters and suppliers will already have an established database of potential candidates, so they won’t necessarily need to undergo the entire hiring/on-boarding process. Recruiters that specialise specifically in the M&E sector will have skilled candidates they’ve worked with before, so they’ve already verified their certifications. In addition, they’ll have received feedback from their clients about each candidate’s performance.
