We profile this dynamic and creative company to find out more about its vast service offering and explore the secrets behind its phenomenal success. Be Personnel is now in its second decade of trading and has emerged as one of Scotland’s most successful and innovative recruitment businesses, recognised for value for money without compromising on excellent quality of service to both clients and candidates. The Company chose to base its head office and administrative centre in Ross-Shire to support major clients in the local area and to provide a walk-in service for candidates seeking job opportunities. The company also enjoys a community role and supports local initiatives including sponsoring sports teams and raising nearly £20k for charities through various team initiatives. The Company successfully fills temporary and permanent placements to a range of sectors for clients UK wide with particular expertise in Food Production, offering added value with the provision of training initiatives including Food Hygiene, Health and Safety, English as a Foreign Language and a HR Consultancy service. Be Personnel has built its reputation and client base in a competitive marketplace by providing excellent service and reliability, but also through a personable and empathetic approach to both clients and candidates leading to long term partnerships and repeat business, many from recommendation. Success is fragile in a competitive market and so, although proud of its reputation for delivering a premium service, the company believes that it can always be better saying “It is not always what we do that makes us different, but how we do it. We use innovative marketing strategies that undoubtedly promise clients exciting service options but a promise has no value until it is delivered and that is exactly what we aim to do every time”. The company continues to flourish despite the downturn in the global economy and never forgets that clients and candidates have a choice, but hopes that by making their experience a positive one they will always be first choice. Brexit and the uncertainty surrounding the eventual outcome is undoubtedly proving a challenge for employment businesses sourcing and retaining workers from outside the UK but the company is rising to the challenge with its innovative marketing, working in partnership with clients to offer enhanced packages with its added value services and establishing a network of professional recruitment contacts across several countries. Be Personnel has also developed an app, which is a somewhat innovative tool as this is something not commonly used by recruitment companies. Be Personnel’s app allows users to quickly and seamlessly explore the vacancies on their website and it has been widely praised by users since its launch due to its accessibility and simplicity. Be Personnel’s app is also fairly unique in the recruitment sector due to the fact it can be tailored to meet individual user needs based on job sectors, location and contract type. The team’s vision is always to deliver ‘Business Excellence’ and first class service to their clients and candidates.
