The Benefits of Using a Construction Staffing Firm

I am Joel Miller and I have spent the last 8 years recruiting skilled construction tradespeople. As a construction recruiter, my focus is to find specific individuals with the skill set our clients look for such as carpenter jobs or plumbers or electricians. When talking to potential clients I get asked: What can you guys do differently than us. My answer is simple, you decided today that you needed to make a hire. So, you posted an ad. You will likely follow up with candidates spending a great deal of your time that could be better spent. The difference for us is, as a construction staffing firm, we do this every day and our construction recruiters have the resources to work beyond an ad. They are trained specifically for the hiring process and how to identify quality candidates from others.
A construction staffing firm is constantly recruiting specific skill sets; plumbers, electricians, carpenters, sheet metal workers, masons and more. This process is repeated over and over, which ultimately leaves the construction staffing firm access to all ad respondents for the past number of years. Being able to have access to a range of experiences and backgrounds from the clients area is beneficial for both parties. Construction Recruiters get to know their candidate’s strengths and weaknesses, that way they are set up for success on day one with your team. Through multiple conversations and years of tracking candidates, a database and candidate profiles are built.
Our database allows for flexibility. Flexible construction staffing allows for short- and long-term solutions for each client and candidate. The decision to use a construction staffing firm is usually determined by workload.  The construction industry is fast paced, deadline driven and on a budgeted schedule. A construction company relies on quality tradespeople to get the job done; therefore, they will reach out to a staffing firm.  If they can keep construction tradespeople busy for at least 12 months, they’ll hire on permanently. If the duration is less than 12 months, they prefer to go with a temporary contract.
So, the next time you have a big job, need to finish on time and are looking for quality tradespeople, come to a construction staffing firm and you won’t have to worry about conducting interviews, processing paperwork, or providing benefits. The hiring process can take a lot of your time and bad hires lead to bad projects. We can help.

When a contractor makes the decision to hire, they post ads, call the ad respondents and pick who they believe is the best of the applicants. Typically, the individual managing this process has other tasks to do that day.
