Our Case Studies & Testimonials
Howdens Case Study
We were contacted by the recruitment manager of Howdens Joinery, one of the UK’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of Kitchen and Joinery Products. The requirement from them was to supply a Field Service engineer with in-depth knowledge of gas/electrical and appliance engineering. This candidate would also have to have vast experience in the industry as he was to be tasked with managing a team of 10-15 engineers to cover the west coast of Scotland.
The time parameter we were given was essentially to supply someone suitable as soon as possible but due to the level of experience needed for the job Howdens expected a reasonably lengthy process. One of our consultants gave this contract their immediate attention and advertised the job the same day that they were tasked with it. After speaking to numerous qualified applicants within 3 weeks a candidate was chosen who exceeded Howdens expectations and was offered the Job.
Testimonial from the Recruitment Manager at Howdens Joinery…
I approached Jamie Menzies around two months ago with the view of Influx assisting my company with a particular recruitment campaign. It was a niche role and I expected quite a lengthy process. I am delighted to say that Influx surpassed our expectations by filling the role with great speed and supplied us with a high quality candidate within 3 weeks.
Not only will we be using Influx in the future I can highly recommend them to others.
Deetech Case Study
We were approached by an Agent working on behalf of an engineering consultancy who specialise in new construction projects and maintenance/shutdown programmes.
The consultancy company was struggling to find skilled personnel for their latest project and asked us to assist otherwise the deadlines that had been set were going to be missed.
Personnel included Coded Welders, Pipefitters, Riggers, CSWIP Inspectors and QA Personnel. It wasn’t easy to source them all, however, we did in and within the timescales set though our extensive global network of candidates. The work was completed in time and we are now their preferred supplier of personnel.
“I can personally recommend Sharon Menzies and her team to help coordinate coded welders and supervisors to a prestigious project we were working on. I can honestly say she will not take no for an answer and gives a first class approach in recommending contractors who are more than capable of seeing the project out.”
