temporary placement

As well as our standard recruitment service we provide industry specialist consultants to our clients and other staff for short to long- term projects.  Our rates for these services are well below those of the Professional Firms and as well as this, our methods are generally more flexible and adaptable to our client’s requirements.  

We are not limited at all by the normal problems facing the Professional Firms, such as the skills depth of their team, high overhead costs, mandated methods of approach etc.  This form of outsourcing has obvious benefits to the client for his project, i.e.-

  Lower project cost
  Ensures skills availability
  Shortens time to production
    Allows flexible approach to meet changing objectives and priorities
  Maximizes effectiveness of management time
