The key to our success

One of the keys to our success has been the specialist nature of our recruitment teams. Specialist divisions include Accounting & Finance, Construction & Property, Human Resources, Information Technology, Manufacturing & Logistics, Office Support, Oil & Gas, Pharma, and Sales & Marketing. Experienced recruiters, specialized and well-networked in their respective areas of expertise, are able to effectively locate, screen and deliver candidates to fit even the most unique of client needs in a timely fashion.

Hays Specialist Recruitment was instrumental in setting up FRES (the Federation of Recruitment and Employment Services), which is now called REC (Recruitment and Employment Council), a governing body overseeing the ethics and practices of the staffing industry. Hays Specialist Recruitment is active in associations in Canada as well.

How we do it

We share ideas, knowledge and experience across businesses and territories to deliver outstanding results and we invest heavily in equipping our staff with the specialist skills necessary to perform to the highest standards, while developing their careers.

Our office network ensures we’re physically present in all the places where we do business, ensuring clients and candidates receive the highest levels of service. Our front and back offices are professionally administered by dedicated teams of support staff in IT, legal, finance, HR and marketing.

Permanent recruitment

Our interview process covers every aspect of a candidate’s professional career, from experience and education through to personality, attitude and outlook. Hays Specialist Recruitment has a track record of success in sourcing candidates with unique skill-sets and in filling volume positions in a timely fashion. As a contingency firm, our business model is simple: you pay us only when you choose to hire a candidate that we have introduced to you. Our fees are highly competitive in the market, and our selection process gives us the confidence to guarantee a free replacement or cash back should a permanent candidate leave within twelve weeks of joining.

Temporary and contract work

Hays Specialist Recruitment can provide temporary staff at all levels across our specialist divisions. No-one has more working temporaries than Hays Specialist Recruitment. As a result, we attract the highest calibre of candidates seeking temporary work. We will endeavour to have appropriate temporaries working for you within hours. Recognizing the need for an immediate impact, our temporaries are thoroughly briefed and we strive to ensure they have knowledge of your industry sector. All are carefully referenced.

Flexible staffing solutions

Whatever your staffing dilemma, let Hays Specialist Recruitment help you solve it. We can assist at all levels, from outsourcing an entire department or project to an individual search, from entry level to VP and C-level positions. Hays Specialist Recruitment will offer our own staff onsite at your premises, onsite at ours, or will assist you in sourcing your own staff. We also offer variations between the two, where you may “try before you buy”, putting in someone on contract and then converting them to full time employment.

Whatever your staffing need, we will custom fit a solution for you.
