Recruitment company goes for growth 24:7

By Anita Jaynes on 8 December, 2015

2015 has been a stellar year for Chippenham headquartered 24-7 Staffing. An independent recruitment and training company that specialises in four distinct sectors, Driving and Logistics, Commercial, Industrial and Healthcare.

In June they opened their third branch. This was a tactical move for the company said Julian Thompson, managing director: “We chose to set up another office in Amesbury following the emerging economic and housing developments in the Wiltshire Core Strategy combined with the Super Garrison currently under construction in nearby Tidworth, as this area has traditionally always suffered with a candidate shortage. We knew we could really make an impact by helping with the supply of candidates from this overlooked pocket in Wiltshire.”

24-7 Staffing has made a conscious decision to ensure that training underpins everything that they do and have built a business model that invests in the future of their candidates and clients.

Across all sectors the firm now offers training and development, from Microsoft packages to driver CPC qualifications, certificates in healthcare as well as First Aid.

Healthcare is a new sector for 24-7 Staffing and they are particularly ethical about the way they work. As standard, the agency ensures their candidates have a minimum of six certificates before they are put out into the workplace.  To ensure candidates are of the highest calibre, 24-7 Staffing is investing 50% of the training costs, with the individual paying the other 50%.  The company has responded to the needs of the marketplace, with many people asking for access to courses such as epilepsy training.

24-7 Staffing stands out from the competition as it has invested in a permanent compliance manager.  Candidates cannot be put on their database unless all referencing and eligibility checks have been signed off by the department head to ensure the highest standards of quality at all times. The company’s business ethics is driving growth with an increasing client portfolio in new sectors and the appointment of high calibre new staff to support this. The team will have increased to a 19 strong head count by the end of December with an ambition to keep growing and respond to the needs of the market in 2016 and beyond.
