Contract Recruitment Services

The need for a flexible workforce is greater than ever. The cost of employing permanent employees is rising and the related compliance and employment issues are ever more complicated.

The situation with Covid during 2020 has highlighted the benefit of being able to react quickly to downturns or changes in market conditions. Equally, a large project such as digitalisation or implementation requires the services of specialised talent for finite periods, with the need for that talent exhausted once the project is complete. Ultimately, the need for flexibility remains and, if anything, is likely to increase.

And then there is the contractor side. Many people are embracing the ability to work flexibly, taking contracts when required but also being able to take longer breaks, for study or the achievement of life objectives, without feeling their career is penalised as a result.

Thus, whilst changes in regulation will have an impact on how that workforce is managed (see our IR35 page here) the requirement for contractor services is not going to diminish.

At Certus Recruitment, our contract team can assist with everything from a single short-term cover for an absent member of the permanent team to resourcing and managing an entire program of works.

Contractor Management

You need to be able to depend on your recruitment partner when it comes to managing your contractors. Contractors need to be focused on delivering the project, not whether they are being paid and how their status has been determined.

At Certus Recruitment we use best-of-breed technologies and market-leading partners to deliver an outstanding service to all our contractors, regardless of their level or length of the contract. Our onboarding system is flawless and our cloud-based contractor management system enables seamless time sheeting at the click of a button.

Our Contractor Management team ensures any issues are dealt with promptly and that our contractors feel part of the Certus team and valued for their contribution.

We believe in fair rates for our contractors (in line with current market variations), fair charge rates for our clients, and fair margins for our work. You will never feel uncertain about where your budget has gone and you will always be impressed with the specialised talent we are able to attract on your behalf.

  • I had a great experience with Certus Recruitment Group! They helped with the entire process from the moment I submitted my CV to the very day before I started work. Megan S. and Gabby were super friendly and professional, I'd definitely recommend Certus to anyone looking for a job. I still can't believe I met with them on Wednesday and by Friday I had an amazing job offer!​
