Finding it hard to source talent across trades? 

Recruiting trade talent has changed dramatically in recent times; it is no longer a simple case of “if you have a job, you will fill the position”. With borders closed and immigration affected,  businesses recruiting trades and technical roles are experiencing the flow on effect of COVID-19 as we face a worker shortage, with quality and skilled trades in high demand. To remain competitive and to ensure you are attracting the best talent, you’ll need to partner with a true specialist that has established networks, national resources, and multiple sourcing channels to meet your talent targets.
