Network Construction Services (NCS) are part of the Pertemps Network Group family and, like all of our teams, are showing the flexibility, agility and determination to keep the country running in the most difficult of times. Here’s just one example of how they supported the UK’s fightback against Covid-19.
A valued client, working on a vital infrastructure project required 30 multi-skilled workers per shift over the Easter Bank Holiday. This task poses a range of logistical challenges at the best of times but made all the more difficult because of restrictions and control measures in place due to Covid-19.
The NCS team worked closely with the client, offering more consultative recruitment services. These included:
- Risk assessing delivery
- Contingency planning
- Proposing control measures
- Flexible solutions to challenges
- Using local resource
- Providing accommodation & travel
The NCS team set up daily conference calls with an agenda that covered not only key aspects of recruitment, but also new ways to ensure a safe delivery and assuring 100% supply and attendance by capturing the hearts and minds of the candidates, as well as creating value for the client with multi-skilled resources.
- 100% roles filled
- 100% attendance by every worker for duration of project
- 100% staff surveyed said they felt safe and that their safety was a priority
- Candidates reported that NCS was ‘smooth,’ ‘professional,’ ‘helpful’ and ‘easy to communicate with.’
