Labour hire: how do we choose our employees?

So you’ve decided to use a labour hire agency to fill those gaps in your workforce. You might be new to labour hire and are curious how it works and the quality of the workers that are going to be sent to your site. You may be experienced with labour hire, having used labour hire agencies in the past, and are trying to find the best possible workers by trying out different tactics with different agencies. So today we thought we’d explain our process of identifying the best possible workers for your project.


The Recruitment Process

As a labour hire agency in Sydney we are always looking for the best possible people in their given trade, as there is such as high demand from the construction industry. We are constantly on the lookout for talent, whether we have a role we are looking to fill or not. This allows us to have a vast, up to date database of potential workers for your project. OR a client will have a specific role they need to fill and we will then endeavour to find the right candidate.

Our team of labour hire experts will do all of the hard work for you:

  1. Resumes – we review each candidate’s resume carefully to ensure that they have the right experience and qualifications for the role.
  2. Qualifications/licenses/tickets – we have years of industry experience and know exactly what tickets, licenses and qualifications each trade require to be suitable for your job, and we make sure that any suitable candidates hold valid and up to date tickets.
  3. Interview process – interviews can be tedious, as often you can’t get a feel for a person or know if they actually have the experience they claim to have before speaking to them. Our labour hire team complete the entire interview process for you, to separate the best from the rest.
  4. References – a candidate can have a fantastic resume, hold all of the required tickets and qualifications and have passed the interview process with flying colours. But is that enough? We are as thorough as possible and always ensure that we check our candidates references to ensure that they have positive feedback from previous employment to make sure they are also going to give our clients a positive experience too.


It doesn’t end there; client/candidate follow up

As a labour hire agency in Sydney we place candidates within roles with our clients every day of the week. New candidates, or people who have worked hard for us on other projects. Either way, each project and client is different and we want to make sure that we are always giving you the best possible person for your worksite.

Once we have placed one of our workers on your worksite, your labour manager will always follow up with you on the performance of the workers that we have provided to you. Your feedback is invaluable to ensure that we are sending you high quality workers that you expect and often exceed your expectations. If you are happy with the workers then you are happy with us, and you will continue to work with us for your labour hire needs. So the follow up process is just as important as the recruitment process in our eyes.

We make sure that our workers are fulfilling their working requirements each day, that they turn up on time and have all of the skills on site that they have on paper. If you aren’t satisfied with the quality of the labour we have provided then we can find you an alternative from our large database of potential employees quickly and easily.


In labour hire, consistency is key

We understand that the nature of labour hire often means that you are provided with different workers depending on your project, the length of time and the location. But what happens if you really like one of our workers and want them to continue to work on your project? This is no problem for us at BriX Projects labour hire. When a client is happy with the worker we have provided we often find that they employee also enjoys working for that client and on that project, so we make sure that you keep that employee. Saves you the time and hassle of finding good people, whilst still being able to retain the good workers that we have sources you.


Separating the best from the rest

We pride ourselves on being able to find the best possible candidates for our clients across Sydney. Our reputation in the industry coupled with our excellent rates and internal processes means that our employees are very satisfied with us as employers, and therefore are the best possible people to be working for you, as they work hard for us.

We ensure that during the recruitment process, whether we are recruiting for a specific client/project or just in general, that we are taking on the people that have the widest range of skills, the most experience and probably most importantly, that they are good hard working people.
