Once we've worked together to figure out what you need, it’s time to put the specifics down on paper to make sure we maintain the level of service we’ve agreed upfront. We'll sign-off on our priority metrics and set up a service level agreement that highlights the commitments on measurables such as CV’s sent-to-placement ratio and time-to-hire.

The labour market is constantly shifting and changing in reaction to what’s going on in the political sphere (particularly around Brexit), any new legislation, and UK business productivity in general.

We can help you understand what’s going on and make recommendations to position your business as an attractive employer in the market.

gap technical provided us with candidates whose CV's were aligned to skills, personality fit and work ethic. During the last year, gap technical has supported us with 16 placements – five electrically biased engineers, 10 mechanical maintenance engineers and a reliability engineer. gap technical listened, was consultative, reliable, communicated impeccably, provided honest opinions and supplied fantastic engineers. I have no reason to go anywhere else for my recruitment needs, which is a testament to the team and the service they provide.
I have worked with the gap technical team for the past three years, suppling both permanent and temporary heads into my maintenance team. Three years is a long time to maintain such a high level of consistency and service. We didn’t need a sales pitch, we needed a technical recruitment provider that could add value to our business. gap technical, and specifically our consultant Alex, have done that, always being on hand to support. They listened to our requirements and delivered engineers that fit in brilliantly with our current teams. Throughout every stage of the recruitment process gap technical keep us and our new employees up-to-date, from an outstanding briefing on all prospective candidates, through to a follow up after the employment has started. Our new employees tell us they deliver the same level of service to them too. They are always looking for ways to add value, for example providing advice about job descriptions and salaries based on their wider knowledge of the local employment conditions.
I have found gap technical to be extremely focused when addressing our needs for engineering cover. They have repeatedly demonstrated a great deal of flexibility in responding to our immediate, short, and long term cover requirements. The calibre of engineers which we have received at our site have been good, and fit our requirements. They are reliable and have proved professional in all circumstances.
We hadn’t recruited for a top end position for over 10 years, and the technical position we were recruiting for required a niche and specific skill set. gap technical was supportive from the beginning; the team's manner and professionalism was just what we were looking for to help us find the ideal engineer. We tried other recruitment agencies at the same time, but gap technical found us the best of the best, which wasn't an easy task considering what we were asking for. I would recommend gap technical to anyone and will use them again for our own recruitment requirements.
We have worked with gap technical for a number of years. The quality of the engineering staff provided to us is second to none.
We are a niche industry and the team at gap technical ensured they had a good understanding of our requirements. Great service.
