We believe very strongly that the foundations for a successful recruitment partnership with our clients across Derby and Derbyshire, are based upon Sky Recruitment Solutions’ effort and determination at the outset to understand who our clients are – in terms of their business culture, their product/services, and ultimately what they want from us as a recruitment partner. Attention to detail and listening – key areas in which we excel.

The initial introduction and fact finding, is a very professional and thorough process that has been developed over many years, and requires the input of our clients, as we believe that the partnership will only work with complete cooperation. This information compiled is also refreshed with our client base at least every 6 months to ensure that our processes, and understanding of your business needs, is 100% up to date.

Understanding the role, whilst also ensuring the Health and Safety of our candidates, is a responsibility we take very seriously, which is why we always pass our audits with flying colours when organisations (REC, GLAA) check our compliance. We work to the very highest industry standards.

Initial telephone briefings, site familiarisation exercises, introductions to all stakeholders, timeframes agreed and strategy aligned to the business’ requirements, joint authorisation of the advertising strategy – all of this is standard, but bespoke.

Ultimately, our aim is that our clients can ‘park’ their recruitment needs with us, and allow them to concentrate on their own business – the theory being “you’re experts in what you do, but we are the experts in recruitment, so let us handle this for you”.

“This is absolutely fantastic work from yourself driving the new requirements of our company and the Sky Recruitment Solutions team in making it happen, this is definitely a benchmark all other agencies should be aiming for and be envious of by:

  1. Looking after employees safety on assignments through training and awareness.
  2. Creating a two way working relationship that can only grow and achieve longevity.

Keep up the good work!”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sky Recruitment Solutions, in particular Beckie since January 2019.

In this time, I have found them very helpful, attentive; nothing is too much trouble and have fulfilled all my temporary staffing needs since we have worked together.

On average Sky supplies us with 2/3 members of staff a day. To help with our regular reworking contract, which has tight deadlines to meet and since we have worked with Sky, we have not missed one.

In particular we had 4 weeks’ worth of reworking that needed to be done within a week due to a mix up in-house and our daily requirement of 2/3 workers was nowhere near enough, we needed 15/16 people a day to meet this deadline. Sky came through with the numbers we needed, the deadline was met, and our clients were very impressed we how we dealt with the situation. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without Beckie and Sky.

As a freight forwarder we have special requirements that need to be adhered to before we can let anyone onsite to work for us, such as various background checks, employment history, etc.

We cannot just take anyone off the street, which makes life difficult for Sky to meet our requirements but repeatedly they have.

I would highly recommend SKY Recruitment to anyone who has temporary or permanent staffing needs.”

“We have been working with Sky Recruitment Solutions as a Preferred Supplier for nearly 5 years for all of our Temporary, Permanent and Interim recruitment needs.
During this period of time the team at Sky have spent time in our business getting a broad understanding of our culture and values to allow them to make valuable contributions and placements that match our recruitment needs.

Sky have always fulfilled our expectations which includes the collection and verification of information for a 5 year pre-employment check for all candidates. As a Department for Transport Regulated Agent it is vitally important that we obtain accurate and complete information as part of our strict compliance procedures.

This assistance service from Sky in the initial data collection allows us to operate quickly and efficiently as all candidates who arrive for interview will have been correctly vetted through Sky at the beginning of the selection process.

Sky have the reputation of finding the right candidate for any role they work on; their superb knowledge of logistics staff has allowed us to have access to the candidates we are looking for.

Thank you Sky Recruitment Solutions.”
