We source engineering Talent for your Firm

Recruiting qualified engineering talent is incredibly tough, as demand currently outweighs supply. That is why trusting an expert engineering recruitment agency is more important than ever. At CloverHR, we have 28 CIPD-qualified partners who provide affordable, bespoke engineering recruitment solutions that help you grow your workforce.

Proactive headhunting is our speciality, and our recruiters will not rest until you have made your hire. That means combining the job market and screening CVs to pick the prospects that can instantly impact your teams. We can optimise your interview questions and then, after you have chosen your ideal applicant, manage every step of your onboarding process.

We are equally able to help candidates. Whether you are looking for your first role after graduating or trying to boost your career, we can optimise your CV and prepare you to excel in an interview. We ensure you make a perfect impression and get you hired.

Why Use A Recruitment Agency?

When recruiting new team members, finding the right match of qualifications, experience and attitude is increasingly difficult. A worker may have all the right background and skills, but if they do not fit into your workplace culture, they can decrease your team’s productivity and cost you money. So each candidate must be evaluated thoroughly.

But if you are running a business, you don’t need the added stress of screening and analysing dozens of applicants. That’s where an engineering recruitment agency helps. We remove that stress by filtering through the applications and only highlighting the best prospects.

You Should Consider

Choosing the right agency for you dramatically impacts your chances of success. You should identify whether the agency wants to form a lasting business relationship with you or just trying to make money from you quickly. Then consider how they will support you: are you pigeonholed into a rigid, uniform process, or do they invest their time, learn everything about your business and then provide bespoke support?

After you hire a new candidate, there are many onboarding processes and obstacles to navigate, pulling you away from essential tasks. Most recruitment agencies will only provide the candidate, whilst some handle these responsibilities for you.

We have experience working with almost every existing role you can imagine, and we research new developments to be a leading authority on the required skills.

The entire process is managed, including contacting references and filing the necessary contracts.

I met Michael several months ago. I was really impressed with how he was able, within a short space of time, to ‘get under the skin’ of our company, understand what we are about and identify potential issues. Since then, he has advised us on a couple of potentially tricky HR problems with good results for all concerned. Great to know such an experienced Corporate HR professional that understands and can advise in the SME environment. Highly recommended!

Droitwich Print

We have run our successful Bridal Wear company for almost 12 years and now really don’t know how we’ve managed without Clover HR and in particular Emma, who’s been key in bringing calm back into our business. Along with other HR consultants within the Clover Group, Emma has dealt with some of the most difficult of situations and our only regret is that we hadn’t used this amazing company before.
