OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

Here at Workforce we are 100 per cent committed to finding candidates the perfect job that will bring them success and happiness.

We aim to know our candidates inside-out and stay very close to employers and the local market so we know quickly about any potential developments, trends and vitally, the times when employers need reliable people who are ready to work.

If a candidate is offered an interview, then they aren’t left alone to prepare. As part of our service people are invited in for a full briefing and advised on what to expect during the interview. This is a popular added-value service which ensures candidates are match fit for their interview.

If the interview is successful and the role is offered, then our Industrial team continue to support and make sure all documentation is in place and ready for day one.

 

CONSIDER TEMPING

If you have not considered temporary work, now might be the time to do so as it is ripe with benefits that you might not have thought of.
 
Temporary work allows you to sample a variety of different jobs and industries, allowing you to develop a range of skills until you find a career path that you are happy with. It is ideal because you can sample careers without committing yourself to them!
 
Your ability to adapt to different roles enhances your personal skills by learning new ways of working through different businesses, industries and cultures, and this array of experience will shine on your CV.
 
Temporary work can also come with flexible hours. You might be able to choose which shifts work for you, so you can chose to take off or add-on weekends or holidays to your convenience. This might be especially important if you have a family to support.
 
Last but not least, a temporary position can often lead to a permanent position, if you and the employer are happy with your work there! 

 

WHAT TO BRING WHEN YOU FIRST VISIT A WORKFORCE BRANCH

Firstly, you will need to bring the correct documentation to show that you have a right to work in the UK. This can be either a passport or birth certificate which should be accompanied by documents from the tax office. 

If you are from a country within the European Union (EU) then we will need a copy of your passport. If you are from outside the EU, then we will need your passport and a working visa.

Your documentation is vital and without it we cannot place you into work – either for a temporary or a permanent role.
