Temporary Recruitment

We’ve been delivering temporary recruitment solutions to support clients’ fluctuating labour requirements since we started in 2001. We still supply our first ever client with their temporary workforce. So, that should say a little about the experience and trust we’ve earned in planning and executing long-term resource plans. Equally as important, we can react quickly to deliver fully screened candidates to meet fast-changing people requirements.

We deliver a broad range of temporary recruitment services—these range from specialist contract appointments right through to volume solutions. And are available across all of the sectors we work in, including Manufacturing, principally Food and Automotive, Warehousing and Distribution, Contact Centre, Sales and General Administration.

Our temporary recruitment services are flexible and, as always, we tailor our approach to meet each clients’ needs. At Zenith People, we value integrity; we comply with all current legislation and industry best practices. To that end, we have secured ISO9001:2015 accreditation and members of Stronger Together and GLA licenses. Meaning we have regular audits to check our compliance in line with these standards.

We cover the following areas:

  • High volume contract management
  • Ad-hoc temporary recruitment
  • Specialist contract/interim appointments
  • Technical interim appointments
  • Funded pre-employment training

Permanent Recruitment

In the delivery of our permanent recruitment, our regional knowledge and recruitment experience are our strengths. We won’t claim to know everything there is to know. That mindset wouldn’t allow us to continue to learn and evolve our service. What we will say is that our team is full of sector-specific experts. Together we have an abundance of combined years of experience working across the North East, which translates into our delivery. Clients can expect to receive an information-rich, intelligent service that is consultative, connected and tailored to your specific requirements.

It’s our role to deliver a bespoke service to our clients. Our service provides them with advice and guidance on salaries, market conditions, and candidate availability and strives to offer a positive experience to candidates – ensuring our clients are employers of choice.

We cover the following areas:

  • Search and selection
  • Advertised recruitment campaign management
  • Project managed recruitment – from specialist appointments through to volume campaigns
  • New site set up
  • Outplacement services
  • Provision of market intelligence and information
  • Offer management
  • Out of region candidate engagement and relocation

We also offer:

  • Skills and psychometric testing
  • Salary Surveys and market intelligence
  • Candidate vetting services

Training Services

In addition to our recruitment services, we can also offer a range of training services that complement the recruitment offering. Zenith Training, our sister organisation, deliver these. So, if your business could do with (often fully funded) training solutions, we can support that activity in several areas.

Whether you’re looking to complement recruitment with pre-employment training, recruit and train apprentices, upskill your current team, improve Health & Safety and First Aid capability and compliance, implement leadership and management training, or tackle organisational objectives through some bespoke people or skills development. Zenith Training can support.
