The ProblemOne of our new clients wanted 40 new staff within a week to work on an order for one of their high profile customers, so we needed skilled warehouse staff with excellent pick rates, a high level of accuracy and of course they had to be extremely numerate.
Our ApproachWe used our knowledge of the local demographics and utilised this to orchestrate a professional recruitment process, that offered us the calibre of candidates we needed in a more efficient method to meet our deadline.
The SolutionWe used an initiative that relied on our networking expertise to help reduce our time and in turn run skills and psychometric tests, that gave us the numbers we needed, with a skill base that exemplified our clients needs.
The ProblemOne of our public sector clients needed 10 qualified professionals to work at three different locations, with notoriously difficult to find credentials across the East Midlands.
Our ApproachWe used social media and word of mouth as our advertising medium to attract our candidates, so we had a structured approach at speaking to the right people from the on set.
The SolutionWe used our working knowledge and experience from finding the first four candidates, to help reduce the time to fill with the remaining vacancies by actively focuses our head hunting in the right areas.
The ProblemA large corporate firm in the UK had closed one of their sites and relocated their work to Nottinghamshire, where they needed a highly skilled work force to meet the demands of their production targets.
Our ApproachSpent a day with our client to understand the true function and dynamics of their business and what the specifics were in relation to the skill base for the role, as well as gain an insight into the training associated with this, to focus our efforts on the right people for the job.
The SolutionUsed this knowledge to actively head hunt specifically qualified candidates from likewise national companies, ensuring continuity in past employment as a key factor in qualifying them for selection.
The ProblemSales is an ever-changing and aggressive sector that unfortunately influences high attrition levels, but to find internal and field sales candidates in an industry that felt the impact of the recession more so than others, was a difficult task.
Our ApproachIn a market that has seen a distinct transition from the norm, we looked to change our clients perception of whether industry related experience was in fact right for the new look sales team. We did this through drawing on our own experiences in sales and what worked for us as managers, albeit within a different industry setting.
The SolutionTo concentrate on the fundamental function of the role and then break that down into the psychometrics of the existing team. What was important was the personality match, thus emphasised in the competency based interviewing we carried out to determine, self-motivation, drive, passion and ambition to succeed, rather than what their knowledge was of our clients products which can be gained thorough training.
I have been working with apprentices Ellie & Danielle at the Better Together RM company for some time and have seen them both go from strength to strength within the business. Both have become solid members of the HR Solutions team and I have seen them become such confident and strong individuals in their given roles. It’s been great to see them progress from quiet, shy new starters, into the driven and committed people I see today.
This is very much down to their wonderful work ethic but feel the progress they have both made, would not have been possible without the fantastic support from both Rob & Jamie who have been such positive influences on them since the very start of their placements.
Better Together RM is a fantastic company to work with, as they have really embraced the ethos of Further Education and Development for their staff. It is clear they want their staff to develop on both a personal and professional level and I am very proud to be working with them.

When you start a new business you never expect it to take off as well as mine did. I tendered for a project I won which meant I needed to increase my headcount quickly with the right calibre of candidates at short notice; so I turned to Better Together RM.
The service they offered was not only efficient, but it was professional and affordable. The skilled contractors they have supplied have been first class, as well as punctual, a key factor for me in fulfilling my companies targets in order to take my business forward.
During the last several years Rob has provided me with a number of excellent candidates for my department at a speed of response which has met our difficult deadlines. In additon to this the cost has been extremely competitive in a period of financial unrest even for a global blue chip company like ours.
Due to a good selection of candidates, we have been able to offer most of them permanent contracts, after proving themselves within the business. I would recommend using Rob Staniforth for further recruitment.
