Why Contract Scotland?


Let’s address the elephant in the room – some recruitment consultancies have a bad reputation. We’ve heard stories of bad experiences with recruiters from our clients and, frankly, we cringed.

When we started in 1990, we could see dependable, good quality recruitment services that actually put customers first and offered value for money were thin on the ground. That was the gap in the market we wanted to fill.

Today we’re Scotland’s leading independent construction recruiter and after speaking to our clients, we think these are a few of the reasons why:

We listen

It’s such a simple skill. But to build a partnership that makes us a valuable resource to you, we have to get to know your business, your concerns, aspirations and the way you work. That gives us a better idea about your recruitment needs and the sort of people who’ll be a good fit for your business’s culture too. Our satisfaction survey so far in 2016 reveals that 96% of employers who use us feel we truly understand their business and trust us, we’re working on that 4%!

We don’t do ‘off the shelf’

People are different. Businesses are different. So our approach to every hire has to be different too. It’s common sense really, but it’s surprising how many agencies just fire CVs at you without asking all the right questions first. For us, bespoke is the best way to help you.

We’re thorough

We vet job seekers for you extremely carefully. We check their references, their eligibility to work and their site qualifications before you even hear their names. And we look at the person and what they’re all about, not just their CV.

 As one Employer nicely put it:

 “I have gained a confidence and belief over the last 15 years that Contract Scotland consistently operate to the highest standards within the recruitment sector.” June 2016

We build relationships
