Working consultatively and strategically with you to develop your reputation and find top talent excited to work for you.

You need skilled engineering professionals, and probably some younger talent too. And you don’t want to lose any new recruits six months, a year, or two years down the line because they’ve had a better offer. But there is such a limited pool of qualified candidates, it’s like fishing for squid (not easy, if you haven’t tried it).

The team at RSE have always supplied us with 1st class candidates for all of our recruitment needs. they’ve taken time to get to know us and understand us as a company and our team dynamics which enables them to get it right first time every time.

Our approach

So what’s the solution? Well, it’s about understanding the bigger picture stuff. Clichéd maybe but important, definitely. We can find the right person for you but first we need to know what’s the long term plan? What about the rest of the team? Do they need upskilling? Do you actually need a new recruit or would some training within the existing team work better? And then there’s cultural fit, because there is absolutely no point in us finding you a whizz kid if he’s going to p**s the whole team off and walk out after 6 months.

Armed with the above information, we can then relieve you of the hassle, hard work and admin involved in finding the right person. Our talents lie in identifying what is compelling about working for you and marrying that with a competitive package. And if you’re not sure what’s compelling about working for you, we can help tease out key areas, such as your company’s commitment to innovation and development, to ensure that the culture we describe in any job spec is more than skin deep.

Because of our experience in the engineering sector, we can headhunt candidates who may not even be looking for a job. We’ve also invested in a new database to find suitable candidates more efficiently, and we use various job boards, social media campaigns, and direct search via LinkedIn. And because nobody wants to lose hours of their life interviewing completely unsuitable candidates, we do that for you. Dirty job and all that but it has to be done and we do it well.
