Industrial Resourcer

A Day in the Life Of Our Bournemouth Industrial Delivery Consultant

A day in the life of our Bournemouth Industrial Consultant

Following on from our recent blogs, giving you an insight into the working day of members of our team, the next person to put their day under the microscope is our Bournemouth Industrial Delivery Consultant & EU Liaison, Maciej Faldowski

6.00am: I am on call this morning and receive a call from one of our longest standing clients. They have had a member of their own crew fall sick over night and need a team member to assist ASAP. Our systems work really well allowing us to access our full database anywhere . I already know who to call as we book standbys every night to help us 1st thing in the morning. Mark is awake and ready to go. I call back the client and let them know Mark will be there in 30 minutes.

7.30am: I arrive at the office half and hour early as one of our temps has damaged his safety shoes at work and needs a new pair for work this morning at 8.30am. I meet him and issue him new pair and check he is happy with his role, which he is.

8.00am: The rest of the Industrial team are here and we have our daily morning meeting where we go through our plans for the day and discuss our progress on current vacancies

8.30am: The rest of the morning is spent searching for skilled candidates on our CV databases and calling candidates who have responded to job adverts. As there are 2 delivery consultants on the Industrail team, one of us can spend time searching for great new candidates whilst the other looks after our exisitng clients and candidates.

11.30am: Through detailed searching and pre-screening over the phone, I have identified 5 great candidates that would fit contract and permanent roles we currently have available. I make sure I gain permission from them to send their CV’s to our clients as we never send them without this. All 5 are invited into the office to be interviewed and register. One is currently working so I will need to meet him in the office on Saturday. Our Bournemouth office is open at the weekend so this is no problem.

12.00pm: Nikki is back in the office after visiting a new client and I sit with her for 15 minutes and discuss the candidates I have found and which roles I feel they would be suitable for. Nikki asks me to call the clients and make them aware of the candidates skills and ask if they would provisionally like to see the candidates after we have met them, registered themand obtained references to ensure they are the right calibre.

1.00pm: Really positive feedback from the clients I called. I have a number of clients interested in all 5 candidates. They have great skills and I was confident they would be in demand, I am now really looking forward to meeting all 5 and arranging interviews for them.

2.00pm: One of our  valued clients that I account manage has called, they have had a new job in thatt hey want City Centre to staff  but is different to the normal staff we supply. I agree to come and see him immediately to understand what they are doing so I can recruit properly.

4.00pm: Great meeting with the client. The new job they require temps for will need 5 staff for 1 month. I have agreed anassessment and  induction process for all the staff which I will carry out, partly in our office and partly on-site. We are always on-site to meet our staff so carrying out the inductions will be no problem. The staff will start in 3 days time.

5.00pm: Back in the office to catch up on e-mails and have end of day meeting with the team. I  learn they had a busy afternoon with more staffing requests coming in, which have all been filled by the other delivery consultant Amy. The great thing about our team of 3 is that we are always there to cover each other, so we can see our clients regularly face to face  and understand their challenges in more detail.

5.30pm Home time, a satisfying day with a current client requesting extra candidates and 5 really good prospective candidates identified for current vacancies. I am looking forward to meeting the first 2 of these candidates tomorrow afternoon and hopefully placing them into exciting new roles…. Wish me luck!
